This book presents high-quality original contributions on positive systems, including those with positivity in compartmental
switched systems, Markovian jump systems, Boolean networks, interval observer design, fault detection, and delay systems.
It comprises a selection of the best papers from POSTA 2018, the 6th International Conference on Positive Systems, which was
held in Hangzhou, China, in August 2018. The POSTA conference series represents a targeted response to the growing need for
research that reports on and critically discusses a wide range of topics concerning the theory and applications of positive
systems. The book offers valuable insights for researchers in applied mathematics, control theory and their applications.
