In the last three decades, control theory has gained importance as a discipline for engineers, mathematicians, scientists, and other researchers. Examples of control problems include landing a vehicle on the moon, controlling the economy of a nation, manufacturing robots, and controlling the spread of an epidemic. Though a plethora of other books discuss continuous control theory [5, 56, 72], we will present here an introduction to discrete control theory.
