A comprehensive resource on control engineering, the book includes contributions from leading experts around the world. The three volumes cover control system fundamentals, applications, and advanced methods. The Control Handbook is published by CRC Press.

The first edition was cited by the Association of American Publishers as the Best Engineering Handbook of 1996. Fifteen years later, Dr. Levine has reorganized the book and expanded its contents to keep it updated and give it a multidisciplinary perspective.

Levine is also the co-author of Using MATLAB to Analyze and Design Control Systems, published by Benjamin/Cummings, March 1992. Second Edition, March 1995. He is the co-editor of The Handbook of Networked and Embedded Control Systems, published by Birkhauser in June 2005.

Prof. Levine received his Bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D. degrees from MIT. He is a member of SIAM, a Fellow of the IEEE, a Distinguished Member of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and has been President of the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is a recipient of the IEEE's Third Millenium Medal.
