Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2011 Harold Chestnut Control Engineering Textbook Prize, International Federation of Automatic Control

"This book provides an introduction to the mathematics needed to model, analyze, and design feedback systems. . . . Feedback Systems develops transfer functions through the exponential response of a system, and is accessible across a range of disciplines that use feedback in physical, biological, information, and economic systems. . . . Exercises are provided at the end of every chapter, and an accompanying electronic solutions manual is available."--Mechanical Engineering

"Åström and Murray have prepared a very well-written introductory work for scientific and engineering audiences. . . . In summary, this work is a valuable addition to the important area of control and feedback systems."--M.G. Prasad, Choice

"[T]his is a refreshing text which is delightful to read, and which even experts in the area may find a valuable resource for its diverse applications, and exercises, and its clear focus on fundamental concepts that does not get side-tracked by technical details."--Matthias Kawski, Mathematical Reviews

"This book provides an interesting and original introduction to the design and analysis of feedback systems. It is addressed to engineers and scientists who are interested in feedback systems in physical, biological, information and social systems."--Tadeusz Kaczorek, Zentralblatt MATH

From the Back Cover

"This book is a significant contribution. It provides an accessible treatment for a wide audience who would otherwise have to labor through difficult mathematical or engineering treatments. The only prerequisite is a basic understanding of differential equations and linear algebra."--Brian Ingalls, University of Waterloo

"A very useful addition to the literature on the basic principles and theory of feedback systems. This is a unique and excellent book. I believe it will appeal to a broad audience."--Elling W. Jacobsen, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm

Format: Hardcover
I used this book in a course on classical control theory. It's a great book for explaining concepts in control theory. You'll need background in calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra in order to understand it.

The book is great for giving you an understanding of control theory. Whoever said that there are errors in the book is correct, and you will notice errors if you choose to work out the steps that the author chooses to skip. The author has created a list of Errata to go through at [...]

It's a pretty good book. I got it for a university class. There's a lot of errors in the book though (~20 errata per chapter) for the first edition. Still, it explains things reasonably well, and is a pretty good place to start. Requires a decent linear algebra background to understand most of the early material.

Format: Hardcover
The book isn't too bad. The explanations are decently clear, but do require you to pay attention to all the details and steps in the proof or approach. I docked a star for the numerous typos/mistakes. But what irks me the most is that the book does an absolutely appalling job of telling you the difference between a matrix and a vector and a scalar. When you have an equation with 15 terms to keep track of, this gets really confusing and annoying. Seriously. Bold face, underline, etc. It's not that hard.
