Transfer functions and frequency response
Bode diagrams
Polar plots and Nyquist diagrams
Stability analysis for feedback systems, Nyquist criterion
Robustness margins
The classical control loop
Reference signals, outputs, disturbances, measurement noise, tracking errors and the relative closed loop transfer functions
Sensitivity S, complementary sensitivity T and control effort CS
Stationary and low frequency design specifications
Frequency-domain specifications on S, T and CS
Time-domain specifications on transient response
