Mathematical Control Theory: Deterministic Finite Dimensional Systems
by Eduardo D. Sontag
Publisher: Springer 1998
Number of pages: 544
This textbook introduces the basic concepts and results of mathematical control and system theory. It presents its subject in a self-contained and elementary fashion. It is geared to an audience consisting of mathematically mature advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students. In addition, it can be used by engineering students interested in a rigorous, proof-oriented systems course that goes beyond the classical frequency-domain material and more applied courses.

The book is concerned with the effects of nonlinearity in feedback control systems and techniques which can be used to design feedback loops containing nonlinear elements. The material is of an introductory nature but hopefully gives an overview.

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.

The book presents a theory of feedback control systems. It captures the essential issues, can be applied to a wide range of practical problems, and is as simple as possible. Addressed to students who have had a course in signals and 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.
