From differential equations to state-space and beyond

We have seen in Chapter 5 how to construct block-diagrams for simulation using integrators and, from there, derive state-space equations. The task was made easier if it was possible to use a chain of integrators, which led to a trivial definition of the state. In many cases that strategy is enough.

Welcome to the new website for the book

Fundamentals of Linear Control: A Concise Approach

I will be using this space to post information that complements the contents of the book. I will cover theory and practice, some Matlab examples, and occasional random thoughts, mostly motivated by class discussion. I hope you find this information useful.
