Feedback Systems – Karl Johan Åström , Richard M. Murray – 1st Edition


Winner of the 2011 Harold Chestnut Control Engineering Textbook Prize, International Federation of Automatic Control. This book provides an introduction to the needed to model, analyze, and design feedback systems. It is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate , and is indispensable for researchers seeking a self-contained on control theory. Unlike most books on the subject, Feedback Systems develops transfer functions through the exponential response of a system, and is accessible across a range of disciplines that utilize feedback in , , information, and economic systems.

Karl Åström and Richard Murray use techniques from physics, computer science, and operations research to introduce control-oriented modeling. They begin with state space tools for and design, including stability of , Lyapunov functions, reachability, state feedback observability, and estimators. The matrix exponential plays a central role in the of linear , allowing a concise development of many of the key concepts for this class of models.

Åström and Murray then develop and explain tools in the frequency domain, including transfer functions, Nyquist analysis, PID control, frequency domain design, and robustness. They provide exercises at the end of every chapter, and an accompanying electronic solutions manual is available. Feedback Systems is a one-volume resource for students and researchers in mathematics, engineering, and the sciences.
