This book focuses on solving different types of time-varying problems. It presents various Zhang dynamics (ZD) models by defining various Zhang functions (ZFs) in real and complex domains. It then provides theoretical analyses of such ZD models and illustrates their results. It also uses simulations to substantiate their efficacy and show the feasibility of the presented ZD approach (i.e., different ZFs leading to different ZD models), which is further applied to the repetitive motion planning (RMP) of redundant robots, showing its application potential.

Yunong Zhang received the B.S. degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 1996, the M.S. degree from South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China, in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree from Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, Hong Kong, China, in 2003. He is currently a professor at School of Inf...
