I'm looking for suggestions on books or reviews on control theory, if possible written in a fairly modern language and not excessively technical on the math side.

In particular, I would need the following topics covered

  • Optimal control: LQR, LQG
  • Kalman theory, time series, poles, etc.
  • Robust control

I'm already familiar with the general ideas.

  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean with Kalman theory, since the Kalman filter is already captured by LQG and the main thing left would be the Kalman decomposition? $\endgroup$ – Kwin van der Veen Sep 10 '18 at 7:24
  • $\begingroup$ I know the Kalman filter is the "estimation" part of the LQG. What I mean is details on the Kalman alone, related concepts as arma models and so on, and later on a proof/discussion of the separation LQG = Kalman + LQR. $\endgroup$ – nabla Sep 11 '18 at 8:18

For robust control, I suggest "Robust Control Design with MATLAB" by Da-Wei Gu which I found quite practical. And you can read "Essentials Robust Control" by Kemin Zhou for deeper theories
