Striking a balance between theory and applications, Linear System Theory and Design, Fourth Edition, uses simple and efficient methods to develop results and design procedures that students can readily employ. Ideal for advanced undergraduate courses and first-year graduate courses in linearsystems and multivariable system design, it is also a helpful resource for practicing engineers.
Chi-Tsong Chen is Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stony Brook University, New York.
