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.

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.

These materials are intended to provide a meaningful experience with automatic controls for students of modern technology. The topics included provide exposure to basic principles of control systems, transducers, actuators, amplifiers, controllers.

This book presents methods to study the controllability and the stabilization of nonlinear control systems in finite and infinite dimensions. Examples are given where nonlinearities turn out to be essential to get controllability or stabilization.
