Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 36)


In this course we will explore and study a mathematical approach aimed directly at dealing with complex physical systems that are coupled in feedback. The general methodology we study has analytical applications to both human-engineered systems and systems that arise in nature, and the context of our course will be its use for feedback control.
