'the book aims to provide real insight into feedback systems and is aimed at both undergaduates and graduate students of engineering with a background in the solution of differential equations, probability theory and matrix algebra'Aslib Book Guide, Vol. 59, No. 3, March 1994'each section is well referenced, enabling the interested reader to find a more detailed exposition elsewhere ... I felt that the author's treatment of stochastic control is the best part of the book. It is written with enthusiasm.'Peter Hydon, The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Bulletin, Vol. 30, No. 5/6,May - June 1994
It presents basic mathematical models and tools of control theory in a way which makes it readable for undergraduate students of both mathematics and engineering. (European Mathematical Society Newsletter, No. 13, 1994
The book provides a good introduction to the central themes of control theory. (Mathematika, 41 (1994)
