The book contains many practical examples of frequency domain design.

The book establishes frequency-domain theory of feedback maximization in causal single-loop and multi-loop systems, which is of immense importance for both theorists and practical engineers.


While concentrating on linear systems, the book develops design methods applicable to practical systems with large parameter uncertainties and with nonlinear actuators, and abstains from discussing those design approaches that have been found nonpractical or inferior. When the reader becomes confused about why the book doesn't follow up some on some apparently attractive idea, why some theory is not further generalized or, conversely, simplified, or even why the employed notations are not what the reader would consider appropriate, he should be advised to suppress the urge to correct the classic and humbly do his homework of finding the reason why Bode did so.


He later headed the mathematical and physical development at the Bell Laboratories.
