## Control Theory and Its ApplicationsControl theory is a theory that deals with influencing the behaviour of dynamical systems and an interdisciplinary sub-field of science, which originated in engineering and mathematics, and evolved into use by the social sciences, such as psychology, sociology and criminology. In this book, the authors present and discuss topical data on control theory relating to these fields. |
