1 Course Schedule

This is the homepage for CDS 110b, Introduction to Control Theory for Winter 2006.

Course Desciption and Goals: CDS 110b focuses on intermediate topics in control theory, including \(H_\infty\) control theory for robust performance, optimal control methods, and state estimation using Kalman filters. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to design and analyze control systems of moderate complexity. Students may optionally participate in a course project in lieu of selected homework problems. Students participating in the course project will learn how to implement and test control systems on a modern experimental system.
