Control theory is mandatory subject in most of engineering application. They appear in many application from satellite control to molecular dynamics. This book presents a complete course on control theory from the mathematics perspective. Not only that, it uses Matlab to illustrate the issues and solve problems.
Starting from mathematical preliminaries where Laplace Transform, differential equation, stability, matlab are covered, the book dwells deeper and deeper into the mathematics of control theory. Transfer functions, feedback, Routh-Hurwizt criterion, the principle of the argument and its consequences of complex plane, bode plots, stability etc, the root locus diagram, compensation, non-linear control theory and finally an introduction to modern control theory are chapters covered in this book.
The advantage of reading this pdf book are- matlab exercises, problem and their solution to each chapters and detailed mathematical analysis. Undergraduate students will find this introductory book on control theory useful. Graduates students and professional engineers would also find this book useful as a handbook.
