A Week at the Airport: A Heathrow Diary

From the bestselling writer of The artwork of shuttle comes a wittily fascinating exploration of the unusual "non-place" that he believes is the resourceful middle of our civilization.

Given remarkable entry to at least one of the world's busiest airports as a "writer-in-residence," Alain de Botton stumbled on it to be a show off for lots of of the key crosscurrents of the trendy world--from our religion in know-how to our destruction of nature, from our international interconnectedness to our romanticizing of the unique. He met tourists from everywhere and spoke with all people from luggage handlers to pilots to the airport chaplain.

Lavishly illustrated in colour via popular photographer Richard Baker, per week on the Airport finds the airport in all its turbulence and soullessness and--yes--even beauty.

PRELIMINARY CONSIDERATIONS FORUSING FEEDBACK CONTROL FORRAMP METERING Feedback control for ramp metering can be an effective solution for alleviating traffic congestion. However, the success of such ' a system depends on the effective modeling of the system as well as the design of the appropriate control law. The designer of the controller needs to address issues such as controllability and observability of the traffic system, actuation and sensing, robustness, and stability of the closed-loop system shown in Figure 1-5.
