Combining control theory and modeling, this textbook introduces and builds on methods for simulating and tackling concrete problems in a variety of applied sciences. Emphasizing "learning by doing," the authors focus on examples and applications to real-world problems. An elementary presentation of advanced concepts, proofs to introduce new ideas, and carefully presented MATLABĀ® programs help foster an understanding of the basics, but also lead the way to new, independent research.

With minimal prerequisites and exercises in each chapter, this work serves as an excellent textbook and referenceĀ for graduate and advanced undergraduateĀ students, researchers, and practitioners in mathematics, physics, engineering, computer science, as well as biology, biotechnology, economics, and finance.
