The Analysis of Feedback Systems
by Jan C. Willems
Publisher: The MIT Press 1971
Number of pages: 100
This monograph is an attempt to develop further and refine 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. This brings the work into closer contact with the theory of dynamical systems and automata.

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.

Model Predictive Control refers to a class of control algorithms in which a dynamic process model is used to predict and optimize process performance. From lower request to complicated process plants, MPC has been accepted in many practical fields.
