Chapter 1 briefly introduces the problem formations and the organization of the book. In particular, given a feasible set of switching signals, the concepts of stability and stabilizability are introduced, and the related problems of stability and stabilization are briefly formulated and discussed. Examples and simulations are provided to exhibit the primary features of the problems with various switching mechanisms.
