It is unusual to find so main contribution of the book is the complete much detail in what, because of the limited and modern coverage of the thermalization interest and applicability of the subject, field.

Ann Arbor, Michigan The book is divided into two parts. As might be expected from Athans and Peter L.

As a result, much of the material physical examples illustrate and motivate the reported is quoted in an uncritical manner.

On the other hand, of the switching surfaces in state space and the from the same point of view, the book has feedback structures for various low-order many merits.

Athaans exposition is meticulous plants, the application is of a rather academic perhaps too much and the book is written nature, though certainly not devoid of in a precise mathematical ootimal in terms of interest.
