Design and Simulation Software for Controls, Filtering, Signal Processing

Linear control system analysis and design : conventional and modern / John J. D'Azzo, Constantine H. Houpis (1988) 3rd edition. The earlier editions were 1960 and 1981.

This book has an appendix about an Air Force FORTRAN TOTAL, or TOTAL-I.

This is also covered in the 1981 2nd edition.

These D'Azzo and Houpis editions are the only place I have seen TOTAL mentioned.

From when I first learned of MATLAB, I felt that this TOTAL was one of the influences behind it.

TOTAL comes from an MS Thesis

Larimer, S. J. "An Interactive Computer-Aided Design Program for Digital and Continuous System Analysis and Synthesis (TOTAL), School of Engineering, Air Force institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, 1978

So, drawing from:

Linear Control Systems Analysis and Design
Conventional and Modern
Third Edition
John D'Azzo and Constantine Houpis
1988

So, above I talked about the matrix program TOTAL, coming from a thesis by S. J. Larimer, at the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB Ohio, 1978

Now we also have other Air Force Institute of Technology theses listed:

Colgate, A.  "INTERAC -An Interactive Software Package for Direct Digital Control Design 1977

Gembrowski, C. J. "Continued Development of an Interactive Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Package for Discrete and Continuous Control System Analysis and Synthesis, 1982

Hernandez, G. "An Interactive Computational Aerodynamics Analysis Program, 1980

Kennedy, A. "The Design of Digital Controllers for the C-141 Aircraft Using Entire Eigenstructure Assignment and the Development of an Inter-Active Computure Design Program, 1979

Logan, G. T.  "Development of an Interactive Computer-Aided Design Program for Digital and Continuous Control System Analysis and Synthesis", 1982

O'Brien, L. "A Consolidated Computer Program for Control System Design", 1976

And I am sure that MatLAB arose from this work.
