Course Description

This course is an introduction to analysis and design of feedback control systems, including classical control theory in the time and frequency domain. Modeling of physical, biological and information systems using linear and nonlinear differential equations. Stability and performance of interconnected systems, including use of block diagrams, Bode plots, Nyquist criterion, and Lyapunov functions. Robustness and uncertainty management in feedback systems through stochastic and deterministic methods. Introductory random processes, Kalman filtering, and norms of signals and systems. The first term of this course is taught concurrently with CDS 101, but includes additional lectures, reading, and homework that is focused on analytical techniques for design and synthesis
of control systems.

Suggested pre-requisites: Basic course on ordinary differential equations and linear algebra (equivalent to Ma 1/2).
