Method of Variation of Parameters for Dynamic Systems presents a systematic and unified theory of the development of the theory of the method of variation of parameters, its unification with Lyapunov's method and typical applications of these methods. No other attempt has been made to bring all the available literature into one volume. This book is a clear exposition of this important topic in control theory, which is not covered by any other text. Such an exposition finally enables the comparison and contrast of the theory and the applications, thus facilitating further development in this fascinating field.
