This publication is the results of our educating through the years an undergraduate direction on Linear optimum platforms to utilized mathematicians and a first-year graduate path on Linear platforms to engineers. The contents of the e-book endure the powerful impression of the good advances within the box and of its huge, immense literature. although, we made no try to have a whole assurance. Our motivation used to be to write down a e-book on linear platforms that covers finite dimensional linear structures, constantly retaining in brain the most goal of engineering and utilized technological know-how, that is to investigate, layout, and enhance the functionality of phy sical platforms. for that reason we talk about the impression of small nonlinearities, and of perturbations of suggestions. it truly is our at the information; we are facing robustness matters and speak about the homes wish that the booklet can be an invaluable reference for a first-year graduate scholar. We think normal reader with an engineering heritage may have undergone the traditional undergraduate single-input single-output linear platforms path; an undemanding direction up to speed isn't vital yet should be necessary for motivation. For readers from a mathematical curriculum we require purely familiarity with suggestions of linear algebra and of standard differential equations.
