Book Description
This open access book introduces the basic principles of control theory in a concise selfstudy guide. It complements the classic texts by emphasizing the simple conceptual unity of the subject. A novice can quickly see how and why the different parts fit together.
The concepts build slowly and naturally one after another, until the reader soon has a view of the whole. Each concept is illustrated by detailed examples and graphics. The full software code for each example is available, providing the basis for experimenting with various assumptions, learning how to write programs for control analysis, and setting the stage for future research projects.
The topics focus on robustness, design tradeoffs, and optimality. Most of the book develops classical linear theory. The last part of the book considers robustness with respect to nonlinearity and explicitly nonlinear extensions, as well as advanced topics such as adaptive control and model predictive control.
New students, as well as scientists from other backgrounds who want a concise and easytograsp coverage of control theory, will benefit from the emphasis on concepts and broad understanding of the various approaches.
About the Authors Steven A. Frank is Donald Bren Professor and UCI Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. He develops theory on the evolutionary design of organisms and the failure of those designs in disease. He has received widespread recognition for his research, including election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Theodosius Dobzhansky Prize awarded by the Society for the Study of Evolution.

AI based Robot Safe Learning and Control (Xuefeng Zhou, et al)
This book mainly focuses on the safe control of robot manipulators. The control schemes are mainly developed based on dynamic neural network, which is an important theoretical branch of deep reinforcement learning.

DiscreteEvent Control of Stochastic Networks (Eitan Altman, et al)
Opening new directions in research in both discrete event dynamic systems as well as in stochastic control, this volume focuses on a wide class of control and of optimization problems over sequences of integer numbers.

Mathematical Control Theory (Eduardo D. Sontag)
This book covers what constitutes the common core of control theory and is unique in its emphasis on foundational aspects. While covering a wide range of topics written in a standard theorem/proof style, it also develops the necessary techniques from scratch.

Feedback Control Theory (John C. Doyle, et al)
An excellent introduction to feedback control system design, this book offers a theoretical approach that captures the essential issues and can be applied to a wide range of practical problems.

Feedback Systems: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers
This book provides an introduction to the mathematics needed to model, analyze, and design feedback systems. It uses techniques from physics, computer science, and operations research to introduce controloriented modeling.

Embedded Control Systems Design (Herman Bruyninckx, et al.)
The book is mainly addressed to practicing control and embedded software engineers  working in research and development – as well as graduate students who are faced with the challenge to design control systems and implement them in realtime.

Distributed Control of Robotic Networks (Francesco Bullo, et al)
This selfcontained introduction to the distributed control of robotic networks offers a distinctive blend of computer science and control theory. It provides explanations of the basic concepts and main results, as well as numerous examples and exercises.

Control Systems (WikiBooks)
This book will discuss the topic of Control Systems, which is an interdisciplinary engineering topic. Methods considered here will consist of both "Classical" control methods, and "Modern" control methods.

Control Engineering: An Introduction with the Use of MATLAB
The book covers the basic aspects of linear single loop feedback control theory. Explanations of the mathematical concepts used in classical control such as root loci, frequency response and stability methods are explained by making use of MATLAB.

Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control (Dimitri Bertsekas)
The purpose of the book is to consider large and challenging multistage decision problems, which can be solved in principle by dynamic programming and optimal control, but their exact solution is computationally intractable.
