'Control Systems presents the fundamentals of control systems to students in a clear and concise manner. This book is intended for an audience comprising undergraduate students of engineering?mechanical, aerospace, electrical, chemical, computer science, bio-medical, etc. The material is presented in such a way that one can easily relate the knowledge from other fields to control engineering. Most of the topics are introduced from basic principles so the student gets a very strong foundation in control engineering. The pedagogical style and a proper flow of topics ensure that the student can understand the presentation without any secondary reading. The emphasis is more on learning the physics of control system theory and to use some basic mathematics to obtain solutions for feedback control systems.

'  Specially designed for an undergraduate course on control systems Detailed emphasis on physics and mathematics of control systems Proper sequencing of sections, with qualitative discussions at relevant points throughout Excellent pedagogy includes example problems, review questions, multiple choice questions, and exercise problems Answers to multiple choice questions Nicely drawn and clearly labeled diagrams supplementing the text New techniques for plotting Bode and root-locus plots Mini solutions manual and computer programs (Scilab) for exercise problems will be available at http://www.me.iitb.ac.in/~dnm/ControlSystems/   Useful to practicing engineers also
