Mathematical control theory is the area of applied mathematics dealing with the analysis and synthesis of control systems. To control a system means to influence its behaviour so as to achieve a desired goal such as stability, tracking, disturbance rejection or optimality with respect to some performance criterion.

The control theory group at Bath specialises in infinite-dimensional, nonlinear and sampled-data systems.
