Learning outcomes

The objective of the class is to introduce the techniques
for the analysis and synthesis of discrete event systems
and of continuous dynamical systems, each with its own mathematical
apparatus.

To model discrete event systems, we introduce formalisms such as
finite automata and state machines, Petri nets, hybrid automata,
in order to describe heterogeneous and concurrent compositions
with real-time constraints, to account for cyber-physical systems
including a physical environment and cybernetical components.

To model continous dynamical systems, we study linear time-invariant (LTI)
systems and the techiques to synthesize their controllers, with special
attention to methods based on the state-based representations.
We introduce also advanced concepts such as observability, controllability,
state-estimation and control, and stability according to Lyapunov.
