This lecture provides an overview of modeling for control systems. We discuss what a model is and what types of questions it can be used to answer. The concepts of state, dynamics, inputs and outputs are described, including running examples to demonstrate the concepts. Several different modeling techniques are summarized, with emphasis on differential equations. Two examples are included to demonstrate the main concepts.
