## Book Description

Automatic Control Systems

FARID GOLNARAGHI Simon Fraser University

BENJAMIN C. KUO University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

.This is the ninth edition of the text but the first with Farid Golnaraghi as the lead author

For this edition, we increased the number of examples, added MATLAB'" ' toolboxes, and

enhanced the MATLAB GUI software, ACSYS. We added more computer-aided tools for

students and teachers. The prepublication manuscript was reviewed by many professors

and most of the relevant suggestions have been adopted. In this edition, Chapters 1 through

4 are organized to contain all background material, while Chapters 5 through 10 contain

.material directly related to the subject of control

In this edition, the following materials have been moved into appendices on this book's

.Web site at www.wiley.com/college/golnaraghi

Appendix A: Elementary Matrix Theory and Algebra

Appendix B: Difference Equations

Appendix C: Laplace Transform Table

Appendix D: z-Transform Table

Appendix E: Properties and Construction of the Root Loci

Appendix F: General Nyquist Criterion

Appendix G: ACSYS 2008: Description of the Software

Appendix H: Discrete-Data Control Systems

In addition, the Web site contains the MATLAB files for ACSYS, which are software

tools for solving control-system problems, and PowerPoint files for the illustrations in the

.text
