An Introduction to Nonlinearity in Control Systems
by Derek Atherton
Publisher: BookBoon 2011
Number of pages: 176
The book is concerned with the effects of nonlinearity in feedback control systems and techniques which can be used to design feedback loops containing nonlinear elements. The material is of an introductory nature but hopefully gives an overview and provides a basic understanding of various topics, many developed in recent years, and several of which have entire textbooks devoted to them.
