## PrefaceEdit

This is the **Classical Controls** version of the Control Systems wikibook. This book represents a subset of the topics covered in the parent book. Topics covered here will include a basic introduction to systems theory, integral transforms, and basic control techniques using classical control methods. This book should be suitable for a single semesters study, at the undergraduate level, in classical control engineering.
