Model predictive control is an indispensable part of industrial control engineering and is increasingly the "method of choice" for advanced control applications. Jan Maciejowski's book provides a systematic and comprehensive course on predictive control suitable for final year students and professional engineers. The first book to cover constrained predictive control, the text reflects the true use of the topic in industry.
