Systems and Control presents modeling, analysis, and control of dynamical systems. Introducing students to the basics of dynamical system theory and supplying them with the tools necessary for control system design, it emphasizes design and demonstrates how dynamical system theory fits intopractical applications. Classical methods and the techniques of postmodern control engineering are presented in a unified fashion, demonstrating how the current tools of a control engineer can supplement more classical tools. Broad in scope, Systems and Control shows the multidisciplinary role of dynamics and control; presents neural networks, fuzzy systems, and genetic algorithms; and provides a self-contained introduction to chaotic systems. The text employs Lyapunov's stability theory as a unifying medium fordifferent types of dynamical systems, using it--with its variants--to analyze dynamical system models. Specifically, optimal, fuzzy, sliding mode, and chaotic controllers are all constructed with the aid of the Lyapunov method and its extensions. In addition, a class of neural networks is alsoanalyzed using Lyapunov's method. Ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in systems and control, this text can also be used for introductory courses in nonlinear systems and modern automatic control. It requires working knowledge of basic differential equations and elements of linear algebra; a reviewof the necessary mathematical techniques and terminology is provided.
