Leerdoelen  Problemsolving: 1. being able to apply the methods that are treated in the course to concrete problems. 2. being able to solve simple theoretical problems of linear system and control theory. Literaturesearch: 3. being able to search the literature for relevant information about simple extensions and generalizations of the topics from the course. Teamwork: 4. being able to work in a group in order to collect information, to solve problems, to prepare a presentation, and to write a technical report about the project topics. Communication: 5. being able to present the project topic in the form of a seminar and written report. 

Omschrijving  The mathematical systems theory focuses on the mathematical theory of models of physical systems in order to better understand the structure/interactions within these systems and to improve their behavior by designing controllers. In this introductory course we are mainly concerned with analyzing and controlling systems with inputs and outputs, in particular linear, timeinvariant, finitedimensional inputoutput systems. We deal with basic concepts and methods around: linearization, controllability and observability, stability and stabilization, pole placement by state feedback and dynamic output feedback, state estimation, realization theory, and transfer functions. At the end of the course the student has the  knowledge and understanding of the theory of finitedimensional linear timeinvariant systems with inputs and outputs,  knowledge of examples of simple physical systems that can be modeled by using finitedimensional timeinvariant systems or their linearizations,  knowledge and understanding of the concept of a feedback control system utilized in order to improve dynamic properties of a given system,  knowledge of fundamental concepts of system controllability, observability, stabilizability and methods to test these properties,  knowledge of the basic control problems: pole placement and stabilization via both state feedback and output feedback,  understanding the role of state estimation in the concept of dynamic output feedback,  knowledge of the Laplace transform and transfer functions, and the relationship between statespace representations and transfer functions.

(The grade for this course is determined by the following rules: 1) if WE <5.5 or PR<5.5 then G=min(WE,PR) 2) if WE>=5.5 and PR>=5.5 then G=0.5 PR + 0.5 WE where WE is the mark for the written exam, PR is the mark for the project and G is the final grade. The project’s mark PR = 0.6 R + 0.4 P where R is the grade for the report and P is the grade for the presentation.)
