The prospects for control in the current and future technological environment. The text describes the role the field will play in commercial and scientific applications over the next decade, and recommends actions required for new breakthroughs.

The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints.

This monograph develops further and refines methods based on input -output descriptions for analyzing feedback systems. Contrary to previous work in this area, the treatment heavily emphasizes and exploits the causality of the operators involved.
by Bruce A. Francis - Springer
An elementary treatment of linear control theory with an H-infinity optimality criterion. The systems are all linear, timeinvariant, and finite-dimensional and they operate in continuous time. The book has been used in a one-semester graduate course.
