EBOOK - A Mathematical Introduction to Control Theory (S. Engelberg)

Striking a nice balance between mathematical rigor and engineering-oriented applications, this second edition covers the bedrock parts of classical control theory - the Routh-Hurwitz theorem and applications, Nyquist diagrams, Bode plots, root locus plots, and the design of controllers (phase-lag, phase-lead, lag-lead, and PID). It also covers three more advanced topics - non-linear control, modern control, and discrete-time control.

This invaluable book makes effective use of MATLAB® as a tool in design and analysis. Containing 75 solved problems and 200 figures, this edition will be useful for junior and senior level university students in engineering who have a good knowledge of complex variables and linear algebra.
