This book will discuss the topic of Control Systems, which is an interdisciplinary engineering topic. Methods considered here will consist of both "Classical" control methods, and "Modern" control methods. Also, discretely sampled systems (digital/computer systems) will be considered in parallel with the more common analog methods. This book will not focus on any single engineering discipline (electrical, mechanical, chemical, etc.), although readers should have a solid foundation in the fundamentals of at least one discipline.

Introduction to fuzzy control with a broad treatment of topics including direct fuzzy control, nonlinear analysis, identification/ estimation, adaptive and supervisory control, and applications, with many examples, exercises and design problems.

This book presents methods to study the controllability and the stabilization of nonlinear control systems in finite and infinite dimensions. Examples are given where nonlinearities turn out to be essential to get controllability or stabilization.

The prospects for control in the current and future technological environment. The text describes the role the field will play in commercial and scientific applications over the next decade, and recommends actions required for new breakthroughs.

An elementary treatment of linear control theory with an H-infinity optimality criterion. The systems are all linear, timeinvariant, and finite-dimensional and they operate in continuous time. The book has been used in a one-semester graduate course.
