Linear State-Space Control Systems

Robert L. Williams II, Douglas A. Lawrence

ISBN: 978-0-471-73555-7 February 2007 480 Pages


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.
