Modern Control System TheoryAbout the book... The book provides an integrated treatment of continuoustime and discretetime systems for two courses at postgraduate level, or one course at undergraduate and one course at postgraduate level. It covers mainly two areas of modern control theory, namely; system theory, and multivariable and optimal control. The coverage of the former is quite exhaustive while that of latter is adequate with significant provision of the necessary topics that enables a research student to comprehend various technical papers. The stress is on interdisciplinary nature of the subject. Practical control problems from various engineering disciplines have been drawn to illustrate the potential concepts. Most of the theoretical results have been presented in a manner suitable for digital computer programming along with the necessary algorithms for numerical computations.

All 10 reviews »Dear sir,
I am regularly using your books for control engineering but in recent books there are spell mistakes which were never there in earlier books. Just like in page no 64, subscript for u should be ''i'' which is showing as 1 and in consistency of state variables ''0'' subscript is printed twice for t instead of 1 and 0. So please see that , thorough spell check is necessary.
Thanking you,
