State Space System Theory

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


We will now begin our study of system theory. This chapter is devoted to examining one of the building blocks used in the foundation of this course, the continuous time, state space system. Our goal is to cover the fundamentals of state space systems, and we will consider and answer questions about their basic structure, controlling and observing them, and representations of them.
