An Introduction to Nonlinearity in Control Systems
by Derek Atherton
Publisher: BookBoon 2011
Number of pages: 176
The book is concerned with the effects of nonlinearity in feedback control systems and techniques which can be used to design feedback loops containing nonlinear elements. The material is of an introductory nature but hopefully gives an overview and provides a basic understanding of various topics, many developed in recent years, and several of which have entire textbooks devoted to them.

The book presents a theory of feedback control systems. It captures the essential issues, can be applied to a wide range of practical problems, and is as simple as possible. Addressed to students who have had a course in signals and systems.

The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints.

Model Predictive Control refers to a class of control algorithms in which a dynamic process model is used to predict and optimize process performance. From lower request to complicated process plants, MPC has been accepted in many practical fields.

This book presents a collection of major developments in chaos systems covering aspects on chaotic behavioral modeling and simulation, control and synchronization of chaos systems, and applications like secure communications.
