In this chapter we give a quick overview of control theory, explaining why integral feedback control works, describing PID controllers and summarizing modern optimal and robust control theory. This background will serve, as an introduction to control for the nonspecialist and also to motivate our results on PID control, presented in subsequent chapters.
