Analysis and Control of Complex Systems

General description

In a quiet university where everyone knows everyone, a peculiar software starts a chain of events that leads to the appearance of a seemingly impossible to control robotic arm, which begins to tear at the fabric of the otherwise peaceful community. Suspicious professors and seemingly malevolent control freaks converge on the town while a few students begin to understand that there's more going on than meets the eye.

When all Matlab attempts fail, the whole town of Naples, University of Federico II turns upside-down. Many students are on the search for the legendary Matlab script, including professors, BEST Naples organizers, Pulcinella, Pizza, Mandolino and other notable people. But one thing leads to another, creating a supernatural trail. And things get even weirder when a little add one, Simulink, comes into the story.

You will have the oppurtunity to learn about the state of the art about control theory from one of the contemporary icons into scientific world.
