### Review

“…. This book was written by a master expositor and is required reading for anyone who is intersted in pursuing a serious study of the Riccati equation. The first four chapters should be required reading for every graduate student who is thinking about studying geometric or mathematical control theory. I do not know of a better overview of the matheamtics required to do modern geometric control theory. Every control theorist should have a well-worn copy of this book on his bookshelf. … Zelikin has written a book that will be well read for many years….”

“… The text requires good background, but will be a useful reference.”
