Tutorial on Feedback Control Theory

Monday, April 21, 2008 - 10:00am - 10:50am
EE/CS 3-180
Richard Murray (California Institute of Technology)
This talk will present an introduction to some of the key principles and tools from feedback control theory. The two main design principles that will be explored is the role of feedback as a tool for managing uncertainty, and the use of feedback to design the dynamics of a system. Examples from engineering and nature will be used to illustrate some of the key concepts and techniques.
