The book gives the major results, techniques of analysis and new directions in adaptive systems. It presents deterministic theory of identification and adaptive control. The focus is on linear, continuous time, single-input single output systems.

Using the tools of optimal control, robust control and adaptive control, the authors develop the theory of high performance control. Topics include performance enhancement, stabilizing controllers, offline controller design, and dynamical systems.
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.
