This self-contained monograph describes uncomplicated set-theoretic equipment for keep an eye on. It presents a dialogue in their hyperlinks to primary difficulties in Lyapunov balance research and stabilization, optimum keep watch over, regulate less than constraints, chronic disturbance rejection, and unsure platforms research and synthesis. The paintings provides a number of proven and very likely new functions, in addition to numerical examples and case reviews. A key subject matter is the trade-off among precise (but computationally extensive) and approximate (but conservative) strategies to difficulties. Mathematical language is stored to the minimal necessary.
