Linear State-Space Control Systems

Front Cover
The book blends readability and accessibility common to undergraduate control systems texts with the mathematical rigor necessary to form a solid theoretical foundation. Appendices cover linear algebra and provide a Matlab overivew and files. The reviewers pointed out that this is an ambitious project but one that will pay off because of the lack of good up-to-date textbooks in the area.

Having studied under both Professors Dr. Lawrence and Dr. Williams, I find this book to be very accessible as a reference after taken the appropriate modern control theory undergraduate and graduate classes. I would definitely recommend this book to any colleague with the appropriate background.
