ECE598MAB: Geometric Control Theory

Teaching Staff

  • M.-A. Belabbas, Office: CSL 166, email:
    Assistant: Linda Meccoli, CSL 153.
  • Office hours are by appointment.

Meeting times

The class meets Tuesday and Thursday 2:00pm to 3:20pm in ECEB 3013.


There will be roughly 4-5 homeworks assigned throughout the course. The homework are designed to help you verify and further your understanding of the material covered in the class, or of material not-covered.


  • There is no final exam, but a final project with written report (4-8 pages) and oral presentation (30 mins)


There are no mandatory textbooks.


The official prerequisites for this course are ECE 515 (Control system theory and design) and ECE 528 (Nonlinear systems). In practice, a good understanding of linear algebra, multivariable calculusĀ  and the willingness to do additional work on the way to cover possible gaps in your background should be enough. If you fall in this latter category, please discuss first with me.
