Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students know advanced theory of automatic control, are able to design feedback control of discrete-time processes in state and input-output representations. Students understand discrete-time and optimal control (calculus of variations, PMP, dynamic programming) and are able to design optimal controller and Kalman filter.
