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.
