About this course

What is this?
Control System Theory and Design is a fundamental first-year graduate course on the modern theory of dynamical systems and control. It builds on an introductory undergraduate course in control (such as ECE 486) and emphasizes state-space techniques for the analysis of dynamical systems and the synthesis of control laws meeting given design specifications. Some familiarity with linear algebra, as well as ordinary differential equations, is strongly recommended, although the necessary material will be reviewed in the context of the course.
We will primarily follow these course notes:
Additional reference materials include:
There will be regular problem sets, one midterm exam, and a final exam.
