For undergraduate courses in control theory at the junior or senior level.
Introduction to Feedback Control, First Edition updates classical control theory by integrating modern optimal and robust control theory using both classical and modern computational tools. This text is ideal for anyone looking for an up-to-date book on Feedback Control.
Although there are many textbooks on this subject, authors Li Qiu and Kemin Zhou provide a contemporary view of control theory that includes the development of modern optimal and robust control theory over the past 30 years. A significant portion of well-known classical control theory is maintained, but with consideration of recent developments and available modern computational tools.

Prof. Li Qiu received the B.Eng degree from Hunan University, Changsha, Hunan, China, in 1981. He received the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ont., Canada, in 1987 and 1990, respectively. He joined Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong SAR, China, in 1993, where he is now a professor of Electronic and Computer Engineering. Prof. Qiu's research interests include system, control, information theory, and mathematics for information technology. He served as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control and an associate editor of Automatica. He is now a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Control Systems Society and the general chair of the 7th Asian Control Conference, which is to be held in Hong Kong in 2009. He is a fellow of IEEE.
Prof. Kemin Zhou was born in Wuhu, China, in 1962. He received B.S. degree from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 1982, M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from University of Minnesota in 1986 and 1988, respectively. Since 1990, he has been with Louisiana State University where he is currently Mark and Carolyn C. Guidry Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is the leading author of two books in the field: Robust and Optimal Control (Prentice Hall, 1995), which has been used worldwide as graduate textbook and research references and has been translated into Japanese (1997) and Chinese (2002), and Essentials of Robust Control (Prentice Hall, 1997). He is/was an Associate Editor of Automatica, IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, Systems and Control Letters, Journal of System Sciences and Complexity, andJournal of Control Theory and Applications. He was named the Oskar R. Menton Endowed Professor in 1998 and Voorhies Distinguished Professor in 2004, recognized for outstanding accomplishments and contributions to LSU by the House of Representatives of the Louisiana Legislature in 2004, and received outstanding young investigator award from Natural Science Foundation of China in 2004. He was also selected in 2004 as the prestigious Chang Jiang Jiang Zuo Professor. He has also been honored as one of LSU 2008 Rainmakers. He was elected IEEE Fellow in 2003.From the Back Cover:
The Development of modern Optimal and robust control theory in the last thirty years calls for significant change in the teaching of classic control. It is the authors’ goal to integrate the modern optimal and robust control theory into classical control theory using tools already available from the context of classic control. This book represents the authors’ first attempt towards this challenging goal. The book includes a significant portion of the well-known classical control material, albeit with some twists and extensions whenever appropriate in consideration of recent developments and the available modern computational tools. There is significant coverage on some nontraditional topics such as
The book includes the following chapters:
