"Illustrates the analysis, behavior, and design of linear control systems using classical, modern, and advanced control techniques. Covers recent methods in system identification and optimal, digital, adaptive, robust, and fuzzy control, as well as stability, controllability, observability, pole placement, state observers, input-output decoupling, and model matching."
"…well done… …a valuable book written in clear and attractive style…contains much up-to-date information… Laudable is Marcel Dekker publisher, which accustomed us to books printing with high academically form, valuable content, and with a neat graphic."
