Summary and Info
Linear Multivariable Control is for graduate students specializing in control, engineering scientists engaged in control systems research and development, and mathematicians with some previous acquaintance with control problems. It presents a unified approach to the structural synthesis of multivariable control systems that are linear, time-invariant, and of finite dynamic order. Emphasizing a geometric rather than a computational approach, the author describes intuitive and economical methods for handling synthesis. He then applies these methods to two control problems of long-standing interest: regulation and non interaction. Routine numerical examples are placed among the exercises at the end of each chapter. Each of the major synthesis problems treated theoretically is then complemented by a skeleton procedure for, and numerical illustrations of the required computation.
