Old lecture videos, animations to demonstrate and clarify some of the concepts, and color versions of some of the figures that didn't print well. (The sections listed in parentheses refer to the accompanying reading in the notes.)

- Introduction
- Prerequisites
- Modeling and Responses
- Video of Steady-State Error Demo (Section 3.5)

- Stability
- Video of F/A-22 Raptor instability (from NOVA's Battle of the X-Planes).

- Root-Locus Method
- Nyquist Criterion
- Animation: a simple demonstration of Cauchy's Principle of the Angle (Section 6.2).
- Animation:
drawing a
Nyquist diagram for L(s)=1/(s+1)
^{3}with standard D-contour (Section 6.4.3). - Animation: drawing a Nyquist diagram from measured frequency-response data (Section 6.4.3).
- Animation:
drawing a
Nyquist diagram for L(s)=(s+1)/(s
^{2}+1) with notched D-contour (Section 6.5).

- Frequency-Domain Analysis
- Animation: transformation of Nichols plot to closed-loop Bode plot for L(s)=1/s(s+1) (Section 7.2.2).
- Animation: transformation of Nichols plot to closed-loop Bode plot for L(s)=10/s(s+1) (Section 7.2.2).
