Definitions for "Control theory"
That branch of Mathematics and Engineering which deals with the design, identification and analysis of systems with a view towards controlling them, i. e., to make them perform specific tasks or make them behave in a desired way.
The mathematical analysis of the systems and mechanisms for achieving a desired state under changing internal and external conditions.
A mathematical and engineering theory that looks at how dynamic systems behave over a period of time.
Hypothesis about parent-child interactions suggesting that the intensity of one partner's behavior affects the intensity of the other's response.
