Lectures on Stochastic Control and Nonlinear Filtering
by M. H. A. Davis
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1984
Number of pages: 112
There are actually two separate series of lectures, on controlled stochastic jump processes and nonlinear filtering respectively, and the corresponding two parts of these notes are almost disjoint. They are united however, by the common philosophy of treating Markov processes by methods of stochastic calculus.

Several streams of nonlinear control theory are directed towards a constructive solution of the feedback stabilization problem. Analytic, geometric and asymptotic concepts are assembled as design tools for a wide variety of nonlinear phenomena.

This monograph develops further and refines 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.

An introduction to the field of intelligent control with a broad treatment of topics by several authors (including hierarchical / distributed intelligent control, fuzzy control, expert control, neural networks, planning systems, and applications).
by Roy D. Byrd - Delmar Publishers
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.
