THE LAPLACE transform method for analyzing the transient response of feedback systems is laborious.1 Synthesis by this method is almost impracticable. The graphical methods which were developed by Nyquist, Bode, Evans, and others allowed the analysis and synthesis of linear feedback systems to be made with considerably less effort.2,3,4 Methods using infinite series to approximate the transient response from the open-loop transfer function were developed by Tustin, and earlier by Bedford and…

In the study of the behavior of biological systems, a frequently found sensitivity to the rate of change of the stimulus rather than its (steady state) quantity is found, which can be said to be sensitive to the amount of a stimulus.
Heavenly Bodies: Why It Matters That Cyborgs Have Always Been About Disability, Mental Health, and Marginalization
This paper explores some history and theories about cyborgs — humans with biotechnological interventions which allow them to regulate their own internal bodily process — and how those compare to the
