About the Book :
This book is intended for undergraduate and first-year graduate courses of all engineering streams. It provides the basic concepts of analysis and design of discrete-time systems. It covers the theory and applications of digital control systems, assuming knowledge of matrix algebra, difference equations, Laplace/Z-transforms, and the basic principles of continuous-data control systems. Although the chapters are written in the digital domain, the principle is the same for both the continuous-time control and the discrete-time control.
