Automatic control systems satisfying certain general criterions on transient behavior

Aaron S. Boksenbom, Richard Hood
Jun 1951

An analytic method for the design of automatic controls has been developed that starts from certain arbitrary criterions on the behavior of the controlled system and gives those physically realizable equations that the control system can follow in order to realize this behavior. The criterions used are developed in the form of certain time integrals.
