Stabilizing Controllers

Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 36)


We begin here our study of feedback design, which will occupy our attention in the next three chapters. In these chapters we will consider systematic design methods where objectives are first specified, and one can then exactly characterize when the specifications can be met, as well as find suitable controllers. In other words, design is based solely on clearly formulated specifications, rather than on a specific strategy chosen a priori.
