  • George Stephanopoulos

Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


  • emphasizes problem formulation, analysis of posed control problems, and the synthesis and evaluation of alternative control systems.
  • provides a complete understanding of control design and implementation rather than a mere list of mechanistic tools.
  • discusses both controller design concepts and hardware elements needed for practical implementation of various control schemes.
  • emphasizes controllers' actions and their relative advantages and drawbacks.
