This monograph has presented the recent research results of the authors on design of multistage and multi-time-scale feedback controllers for linear, continuous- and discrete-time, time-invariant, linear dynamic systems. This research is particularly important for large-scale dynamic systems composed of several subsystems and/or large linear systems operating in several time scales. In addition, it is important for higher-order linear dynamic systems whose design of feedback controllers can be facilitated by artificially introducing subsystems of much lower order than the original system.
