Linear Optimal Control
by B.D.O. Anderson, J.B. Moore
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1971
Number of pages: 413
The aim of this book is to construct one of many bridges that are still required for the student and practicing control engineer between the familiar classical control results and those of modern control theory. Many modern control results do have practical engineering significance, as distinct from applied mathematical significance. Linear systems are very heavily emphasized.
