Linear system is the cornerstone of control theory and a prerequisite subject for almost all advanced level graduate courses in this area. The aim of this course is to take a beginning student, with some prior exposure to elementary transform and linear algebra, through a motivated and integrated development of the fuller perspective of the linear system theory. This course will also strengthen the basic logical arguments behind mathematical proofs.
