PREFACE

The goal of Advanced Modern Control System Theory and Design is to present a unified treatment of advanced control system design techniques, and to illustrate how to apply the theory presented to realistic design problems. It assumes that the reader (student or practicing control system engineer) has completed an introductory control system course which has used any of the control system books which cover the subject at an introductory level. It can serve as an excellent book at universities for a follow-up advanced course (in the senior-year or at the graduate level) to an introductory course. It alleviates the need for a professor to request that their students purchase several control system books to cover various advanced subjects. This book contains a unified presentation of the advanced subjects that are of current interest for a follow-up course to an introductory course. In addition, it can serve as an excellent book for practicing control system engineers who need to learn more advanced control system subjects which are required to perform their tasks.

The book stands alone and does not assume that the reader has studied previously from my companion book Modern Control System Theory and Design, Second Edition. The book was written assuming that the reader has studied previously from any introductory control system book.

Throughout this book reference is made to various items in the companion volume, Modern Control System Theory and Design, Second Edition, to assist ...
