Course Overview and SyllabusThis is an introductory graduate level course on linear and nonlinear control systems theory. The students will learn analysis, design, and control of physical systems that are dynamic in nature (that is, systems which evolve over time). The course will focus on linear systems for twothirds of duration and on the nonlinear systems for onethirds of the duration. There will be emphasis on mathematical analysis of these systems using tools from linear algebra and differential equations, as well as simulation exercises to appreciate practical challenges in designing such systems. We will broadly cover the following topics:
PrerequisitesExposure to undergraduate level linear algebra/matrix theory and differential equations is desired. We will review relevant concepts from linear algebra in the course. Grading
