Linear Control Systems with MATLAB® contains 9 chapters and 4 annexes, while each chapter is divided into a short theoretical presentation and a second part of applications, supported by MATLAB®.
Examples are focussed on a systemic approach of design and are devoted to induce the user expertise into analysis, the capacity of abstract thinking and theoretical understanding and developing of approaches for an appropriate solving algorithm, the use of MATLAB® Libraries and the evaluation of the obtained results for further approaches. This part is detailed and is leading the user into the basic mathematical principles, is preparing him to select of the solving solution, while MATLAB® routines are supporting him.
Each chapter contains examples that illustrate all the presented concepts while is demonstrating the theoretical support. On this way it helps users, students, pre- and post PhD-fellows or scientists, to gain a deeper understanding of key terms and usual approaches, to connect the concepts and/or to extrapolate them into real practical situations. The book covers both discrete and continuous systems. While mechanical, electrical and computer engineering students need a solid background in both areas, coverage of that scope does justice to neither. A CD with MATLAB® sources of all exercices is attached to the book.
Assoc. Prof. Florin Stratulat obtained his M.S. degree in Automatics and Computer Science from ''Politehnica'' University of Bucharest (PUB), Romania in 1970. He was visiting professor with the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz, Germany at Department of Mechatronics, as well as several times post PhD Research Fellow, stages supported by the German Research Association (DFG), of the German Organisation for Academic Exchange (DAAD), both from Germany and of Steinbeis-Foundation (STW) in Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests include time-frequency signal analysis, linear and nonlinear systems, control systems analysis and synthesis, evolutionary strategies and programming, modelling and simulation, robotics.
Prof. Florin Ionescu is Full Professor with the University of Applied Sciences (HTWG) in Konstanz, Germany and visiting professor with other Universities since 1991. 1992 Prof. Ionescu was appointed by the Steinbeis-Foundation, Stuttgart, Germany as Director of the Steinbeis Transfer Centre (STZ) Dynamics of Machines, Hydraulics and Pneumatics and 2005 of the STZ Project Consulting for Eastern Europe, frame work where he deploied R & D activity and consultancy for industrial companies. // As of: 04/2009
