A Mathematical Introduction to Control Theory
Striking a careful balance between mathematical rigor and engineering-oriented applications, this textbook aims to maximize the readers' understanding of both the mathematical and engineering aspects of control theory. The bedrock elements of classical control theory are comprehensively covered: the Routh-Hurwitz theorem and applications, Nyquist diagrams, Bode plots, root locus plots, the design of controllers (phase-lag, phase-lead, lag-lead, and PID), and three further advanced topics: non-linear control, modern control and discrete-time control. A Mathematical Introduction to Control Theory will be an invaluable book for junior and senior level university students in engineering, particularly electrical engineering. Students with a good knowledge of algebra and complex variables will also find many interesting applications in this volume.
