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.

An introduction to the basic principles and tools for the design and analysis of feedback systems. It is intended for scientists and engineers who are interested in utilizing feedback in physical, biological, information and social systems.

Opening new directions in research in stochastic control, this book focuses on a wide class of control and of optimization problems over sequences of integer numbers. The theory is applied to the control of stochastic discrete-event dynamic systems.

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.
