Linear Systems Theory (EE 60550)University of Notre Dame

Description: This course provides a rigorous mathematical examination of the concepts used in modeling modeling the behavior of linear dynamical systems. The course first reviews linear algebra and undergraduate signal/system concepts for continuoustime and discretetime systems. It examines statebased realizations for continuous/discrete/sampled linear dynamical systems. The course studes stability concepts (Lyapunov, ISS, Lp) used for time invariant varying dynamical systems (nonlinear and linear). It introduces finitetime concepts of reachability/controllability and observability/constructibility for linear systems. It examines model reduction methods commonly used for linear systems. The course closes with a formal treatment of state feedback and its use in the design of state observers, statefeedback control, and observerbased control. d
