There are actually two separate series of lectures, on controlled stochastic jump processes and nonlinear filtering respectively. They are united however, by the common philosophy of treating Markov processes by methods of stochastic calculus.

An inter-disciplinary engineering text that analyzes the effects and interactions of mathematical systems. This book is for third and fourth year undergraduates in an engineering program. It considers both classical and modern control methods.
by R. Timman
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.
