"This is a very comprehensive book presenting the state-of-the-art in numerical techniques for linear systems and control. All the key developments in the area in the last two decades are covered in a clear, concise and practical manner. The accompanying MATLAB-based software implementations of the main algorithms will make the book particularly attractive to graduate students, researchers and practicing engineers concerned about numerical issues in control techniques. The book is very appropriate for one or more graduate courses on numerical techniques for control that could follow a conventional first course on linear system theory." -Professor Rajni V. Patel, Chair of Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada "This book provides a comprehensive treatment of system theory and numerical analysis written by an expert in both fields. It covers a wide range of topics and can be used for undergraduate and graduate courses in the increasingly important area of systems and computation" - Thanos Antoulas, Rice University "Datta has done a wonderful job in writing this difficult interdisciplinary book, blending scientific computing and numerical linear algebra with control and systems theory. In a very elegant manner Datta starts with essential components of numerical linear algebra, and moves to very useful advanced numerical algorithms and software for control systems. As an industrial mathematician involved in aerospace engineering research, I feel that the book will be an asset for researchers and practicing engineers who are using applied and computational mathematics to find solutions to complex industrial problems arising from well-established and emerging control applications - Daniel J.
