Ph.D. degrees from Columbia University.
Dr. Friedland is author of two textbooks on automatic control and co-author of two other textbooks: one
on circuit theory and the other on linear system theory. He is the author or co-author of over 100 technical
papers on control theory and its applications. His theoretical contributions include: a technique of quasioptimum control, treatment of bias in recursive filtering, design of reduced-order linear regulators,
modeling of pulse-width modulated control systems, maximum likelihood failure detection, friction
modeling and compensation, and parameter estimation.
For 27 years prior to joining NJIT, Dr. Friedland was Manager of Systems Research in the Kearfott
Guidance and Navigation Corporation. While at Kearfott, he was awarded 12 patents in the field of
navigation, instrumentation, and control systems. ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) CONTROL SYSTEMS, ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION - Vol. VIII - Reduced-Order State Observers - Bernard Friedland U
