2023
 Coverage: Chapters 1 and 2, Sections 3.1
through 3.6 plus generalized eigenvalues as
presented in class, and Sections 4.1, 4.2, 4.4, and
4.6.
 Exam 2 (31%) 4:305:45 pm, April 5, 2023

 Coverage: The final will focus on sections
4.5, 7.1, 7.2, 7.5, 8.1, 8.2, 8.4, plus
the Lecture
Notes on Controllability Indices. However,
students should be aware that the material builds on
itself, and should review all material on linear
timeinvariant systems, since it could be needed in
order to solve problems from the indicated
sections.
