Teacher: Ferrari Trecate Giancarlo

Language: English


Summary

This course covers methods for the analysis and control of systems with multiple inputs and outputs, which are ubiquitous in modern technology and industry. Special emphasis will be given to discrete-time systems, due to their relevance for digital and embedded control architectures.
