This second edition comprehensively presents important tools of linear systems theory, including differential and difference equations, Laplace and Z transforms, and more.Linear Systems Theory discusses:Nonlinear and linear systems in the state space form and through the transfer function methodStability, including marginal stability, asymptotical stability, global asymptotical stability, uniform stability, uniform exponential stability, and BIBO stabilityControllabilityObservabilityCanonical formsSystem realizations and minimal realizations, including state space approach and transfer function realizationsSystem designKalman filtersNonnegative systemsAdaptive controlNeural networksThe book focuses mainly on applications in electrical engineering, but it provides examples for most branches of engineering, economics, and social sciences.What's New in the Second Edition?Case studies drawn mainly from electrical and mechanical engineering applications, replacing many of the longer case studiesExpanded explanations of both linear and nonlinear systems as well as new problem sets at the end of each chapterIllustrative examples in all the chaptersAn introduction and analysis of new stability conceptsAn expanded chapter on neural networks, analyzing advances that have occurred in that field since the first editionAlthough more mainstream than its predecessor, this revision maintains the rigorous mathematical approach of the first edition, providing fast, efficient development of the material.Linear Systems Theory enables its reader to develop his or her capabilities for modeling dynamic phenomena, examining their properties, and applying them to real-life situations.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc.
