Link zum Kurskatalog
Fall 2017
The class is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the theory of linear dynamical systems, stability analysis, and their use in control and estimation. The focus is on the mathematics behind the physical properties of these systems.

Students should be able to apply the fundamental results in linear system theory to analyze and control linear dynamical systems.
