  • 1. On the Pedagogy of Feedback Systems

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):10 - 12
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (577 KB)

    The undergraduate student contacts feedback ideas from two distinct points of view, each with its own nomenclature and symbolism: electronics on one hand, and control systems on the other. In the typical electronics or communications book treating feedback at an undergraduate level, the analysis is constrained to the steady-state sinusoidal situation. Nyquist's criterion is merely presented withou... View full abstract»

    Based on energy considerations, it is possible to obtain the differential equations of motion of any physical system. A statement of equilibrium involving operations on energy functions is the Lagrange equation d / OT a7' D aOV dt (aq,) -aq aq + aq. Providing that the kinetic energy T, potential energy V, and dissipation function D can be written, the differential equations of the system are obtai... View full abstract»

    I have attempted to call attention to what is perhaps the weakest link in system theory, namely, the process of making measurements which yield the numbers that serve as the inputs to the mathematical theory. I have called attention to Dirac's notation because quantum mechanics, in which this notation was first used, is very much concerned with the measurement process and the notions of linear ope...

    Current techniques for formulating the mathematical characteristics of physical systems vary greatly from one type to another (mechanical, electrical, thermal, etc.). Of these techniques, those used in electrical network analysis have proven to be the more orderly and generally applicable as evidenced by repeated efforts on the part of the system analyst to establish first an electrical analog of ...

    In most transistors which are useful to engineering, densities of electrons and holes are low enough so that random energies have the classical Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution. Also, the customary large ratios of majority-to-minority carrier densities result in majority-carrier flow occurring in response to electric gradients, and minority-carrier flow by diffusion due to concentration gradients.
