Introduction to the Mathematical Theory of Control
By Alberto Bressan and Benedetto Piccoli

This book provides an introduction to the mathematical theory of nonlinear control systems. It contains many topics that are usually scattered among different texts..

The book also presents some topics of current research, which were never before included in a textbook.

This volume will serve as an ideal textbook for graduate students. It is self-contained, with several appendices covering a wide mathematical background.
