# Lecture: Linear Systems

From FBSwiki

Prev: Stability and Performance | Chapter 5 | Lecture Index | Next: State Feedback |

## Overview

This lecture gives an introduction to linear input/output systems. The main properties of linear systems are given and the matrix exponential is used to provide a formula for the output response given an initial condition and input signal. Linearization of nonlinear systems as an approximation of the dynamics is also covered.
