"Present control system theory provides the criteria necessary to bring a second-order single-valued system to rest in a minimum time after a step input. The bang-bang type controller has been developed to obtain this optimum response.
However, existing theory fails to provide the necessary information to obtain the optimum response from a second-order rotational system when multiple values of angular position are allowed. This thesis extends the control theory to include these multiple-valued systems by showing the existence of what are called optimum switching zones. These zones predict which of the infinite number of switching curves in a multiple-valued system is the optimum switching curve. The switching zones are developed for three second-order systems"--Abstract, page ii.
