The interest in point of view, it should be welcomed by teach- this field is based upon both reactor physics ers struggling to synthesize a one-semester applications and upon the use optimmal thermal neu- course out of the vast literature and the trons as a tool for solid state physics research. All this is helpful to the be- algebra, analysis, differential equationsthe ginner as it prepares him for the terminology state approach to system theory, and a and style in which many papers on optimal formal definition of the optimal control control are written.
This is quite reasonable, since most of the currently in- As one of the first general texts on the teresting research in this area of physics is in theory of optiml control from an engineering the thermal energy region. The structure, properties, and engineering realizations of several optimal feedback control systems also receive attention.

The roles of neces- book, therefore, should be considered pri- sary and sufficient conditions, existence and marily as an introduction to the theory. Special features include numerous specific problems, carried through to engineering realization in block diagram form.
It serves as a bridge to the technical literature, enabling students to evaluate the implications of theoretical control work, and to judge the merits of papers on the subject.
