Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

The course will provide students with the fundamental tools for the analysis and control of multivariable dynamic systems and their structural properties. Basic tools of system theory will be introduced, such as possible representation of dynamic linear systems, structural properties (stability, observability, controllability), special normal forms, Kalman decomposition, and others. The course will also address some aspects of modern multivariable control schemes starting from optimal control (in the deterministic setting), adaptive and robust control, also presenting basic aspects of nonlinear control systems. At the end of the course students master all the basic principles of system theory by studying in a systematic way properties of multivariable dynamic systems, and have a good knowledge of modern control tools for multivariable systems.
