Mathematics have been developed for generations, along several civilizations, to quantify, measure, explain and understand the surrounding world. Our modern society would not be possible without Mathematics. Mathematics and Language constitute, probably, the main distinguishing features of human nature. During its evolution, Mathematics got involved into, almost, all aspects of our life. The daily uses of Mathematics are numerous, and increasingly relevant. And this is particular the case in the context of modern Control Engineering. In this lecture, avoiding unnecessary technicalities, we shall present some aspects of the Mathematics of Control, describing some of the basic mathematical and computational tools, and also some relevant applications to the control of fluids and structures.
