In control engineering, the conventional method of designing controllers starts with a precise mathematical model of the process. The desired behaviours of the closed-loop system are also expressed mathematically. All these mathematical information is combined and the equations can usually be solved to give a mathematical expression of control to be carried out. The sophisticated automation application from aircrafts and spacecrafts to chemical processes is a tribute to the success of this method and its numerous variations. However, this success can mainly be achieved when the models are given as linear equations.
