The rapid advancement in digital technology over the past few decades has fueled the progress in computation and communication technologies. Enabled by this progress, complex engineered systems commonly referred to as Cyber- Physical Systems CPS, resulting from the integration of computing, communications and control, and in direct interaction with the physical world, are becoming ubiquitous in our daily lives. Examples of these systems include process control, automotive systems, networked robotics, medical systems, electrical power grids and environmental monitoring systems among others. These real world CPS are increasingly being monitored and controlled by networked control systems NCS and are often employed in critical settings, therefore the assurance of properties such as stability, performance, safety and security are essential. As a result, the analysis and design of NCS architectures have recently gained increasing attention. This dissertation addresses several fundamental challenges in the modeling, design, analysis and evaluation of dependable networked control systems.
