Publisher: Australian National University 2005
Number of pages: 89
The purpose of these notes is to provide an overview of some aspects of optimal and robust control theory considered relevant to quantum control. The notes begin with classical deterministic optimal control, move through classical stochastic and robust control, and conclude with quantum feedback control.

There are actually two separate series of lectures, on controlled stochastic jump processes and nonlinear filtering respectively. They are united however, by the common philosophy of treating Markov processes by methods of stochastic calculus.

An inter-disciplinary engineering text that analyzes the effects and interactions of mathematical systems. This book is for third and fourth year undergraduates in an engineering program. It considers both classical and modern control methods.

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.

This monograph develops further and refines methods based on input -output descriptions for analyzing feedback systems. Contrary to previous work in this area, the treatment heavily emphasizes and exploits the causality of the operators involved.
