This textbok deals with modelling, analysis, and control of dynamical systems. Its objective is to familiarize students with the basics of dynamical system theory while equipping them with the tools needed for control system design. The emphasis is on design in order to show how dynamical system theory fits into practical applications. The broad scope of this book allows it to demonstrate the multidisciplinary role of dynamics and control. In particular, it presents neural networks, fuzzy systems, and genetic algorithms, and provides a concise introducton to chaotic systems. Systems and Control covers classical methods as well as the techniques of modern control engineering such as fuzzy logic, neural networks, and genetic algorithms. No special background is necessary to use this text beyond basic differential equations and elements of linear algebra. A free solutions manual is avaialbe for adopting lecturers. _ _ _ _ _
