Dynamic Systems

Course type

Gives the fundamental theory of continuous linear dynamical systems in both continuous and discrete time. Extends many concepts to nonlinear systems.


Every 2 years.


Mathematics: Linear algebra, Calculus and mathematical analysis, Transform theory

Systems modeling: Some basic course in dynamical systems and control, e.g. TSRT12 "Automatic Control", TSRT09 "Control Theory"
