Hi, I'm an undergrad major in electrical engineering and physics; I am also minoring in mathematics. I am thinking of going into the field of control theory. I was wondering what branches of mathematics are particularly relevant to the field of control theory (I had a mathematics professor who was a control theorist)? And, also subjects in physics I may find particularly useful, directly or indirectly? I thank you all for your input in advance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
