## Print Resources

We will have no required textbook.

Here are some books I like on the subject:

- Thomas Kailath, Linear Systems, Prentice Hall, 1980
- Robert E. Skelton, Dynamics Systems Control: linear systems analysis and synthesis, John Wiley & Sons, 1988
- João P. Hespanha, Linear Systems Theory, Princeton Press, 2009

## Online Resources

You might find interesting information on the lecture notes that you can download below.

The Linear Systems chapter of the book *Numerical
Renaissance* from Prof. Thomas Bewley is a good but
sometime too compact reference. You can download the latest
and greatest version of Tom's book
from here.

For an undergraduate perspective of state-space models you can take a look at Chapter 5 of my undergraduate controls book that you can download here.

Bob Bitmead put together some notes on the subject that you can find here.
