"This book is intended to be a first introduction to the theory of adaptive systems for graduate students. It treats exclusively deterministic adaptive control in a discrete-time formulation…. The basic course material contained in Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 is supplemented with the presentation of more advanced problems and tools such as well-posedness of the control problem during adaptation (Chapter 7), averaging techniques for analysis of adaptive systems (Chapter 8), and global dynamical analysis of adaptive systems operating in a plant-model mismatch situation (Chapter 9)." —Mathematical Reviews
"The book is based on graduate courses taught by both authors and is intended as a text-book. Therefore it is self contained and only basic knowledge of linear algebra and ordinary differential equations is needed. … cover the basic theory of adaptive systems and can be used for a one trimester course. … The book is accompanied by many solved and unsolved exercises, two Maple procedures and a large bibliography."
