This book will discuss the topic of Control Systems, which is an interdisciplinary engineering topic. Methods considered here will consist of both "Classical" control methods, and "Modern" control methods. Also, discretely sampled systems (digital/computer systems) will be considered in parallel with the more common analog methods. This book will not focus on any single engineering discipline (electrical, mechanical, chemical, etc.), although readers should have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of at least one discipline.

The book gives the major results, techniques of analysis and new directions in adaptive systems. It presents deterministic theory of identification and adaptive control. The focus is on linear, continuous time, single-input single output systems.

The book is motivated by the development of high quality integrated sensors and actuators, powerful control processors, and hardware and software that can be used to design control systems. Written for students and industrial control engineers.

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.
