This work applies the theory of nonnegative matrices to problems arising in positive differential and control systems. There is a concise review of requisite material in convex analysis and matrix theory, as well as a detailed review of linear differential and control systems. Exposition incorporates simple real-world dynamic models to better illustrate various aspects of the theory being developed. Contains exercises.
