In November 1982, IIASA and the Committee for Systems Analysis of the USSR Academy of Sciences cosponsored a Workshop on Adaptation and Optimization in Moscow.

The purpose of the Workshop was to discuss the aspects of optimization and adaptive control concerned with systems that operate under conditions of uncertainty. There is great interest in this area in the countries represented at IIASA because most of the systems studied at IIASA (e.g., economic, technological and environmental systems) are of this type. Control in such systems often has a dual purpose: (i) to identify and refine the system model; (ii) to achieve the ultimate aim of the control process. The implementation of these control procedures is closely connected with the related optimization processes. Problems of optimization under incomplete information may also be approached from the areas of multicriteria optimization, game theory and interactive decision analysis.

This volume contains abstracts of the thirty papers presented at the Workshop. They may be roughly classified by subject into the following groups: optimization and estimation of dynamical systems under uncertainty; stochastic optimization, estimation and identification of stochastic processes; applications of adaptive control in ecology and engineering; and decision making and applications in economics and the social sciences.
