This page collects the running examples for AM05 as well as additional examples that have been contributed by the authors and others.
AM05 contains a set of running examples that are used throughout the text. These examples have been chosen to span multiple application areas of feedback and control systems. The links below go to dedicated pages for each running example, where you can find a summary of the example and additional information beyond what is in the text.
- Atomic force microscope
- Balance systems - systems in which a mass is balanced above a pivot point (eg, vector thrust aircraft, Segway, inverted pendulum)
- Bicycle dynamics - how tilting a bicycle affects its motion and stability properties
- Cruise control - feedback system for maintaining the velocity of an automobile while driving
- Drug administration - compartment models used for modeling drug propagation in living organisms
- Operational amplifier - electronic circuits for implementing active filters
- Population dynamics
- Vehicle steering
- Web server admission control
The table below shows the examples that are included in each chapter, broken down by type of example:
- Running examples - these examples are derived from specific application areas and are used throughout the text.
- Canonical examples - these are examples of "canonical" systems that arise frequently in the feedback and controls literature
The examples are coded as follows
- Examples - examples that are worked out in the text
- Exercises - examples that are explored through the exercises
- Missing - examples that are planned for later inclusion
