This thesis takes five FORTRAN IV programs from "Computer Programs for Computational Assistance in the Study of Linear Control Theory" by Melsa and Jones and translates them into a microcomputer BASIC language to run on an inexpensive microcomputer system. Three of the five programs are state variable programs. They are BASMAT for basic matrix manipulation, RTRESP for rational time response, and GTRESP for graphical time response. Two are transfer function programs, FRESP for frequency response and RTLOC for root locus. A user's guide and example are included for each. A final example is used to demonstrate the utility of the two transfer function programs as an aid to direct digital design in the w' -plane.
