% Chapter 8: Root Locus Techniques
%
% (ch8p1) Example 8.7: MATLAB allows root loci to be plotted with the
% rlocus(GH) command, where G(s)H(s) = numgh/dengh and GH is an LTI transfer-
% function object. Points on the root locus can be selected interactively
% using the [K,p] = rlocfind(GH) command. MATLAB then yields the gain(K) at
% that point as well as all other poles(p) that have that gain. We can zoom
% in and out of the root locus by changing the range of axis values using
% the command axis([xmin,xmax,ymin,ymax]). The root locus can be drawn
% over a grid that shows constant damping ratio(z) and constant natural
% frequency(wn) curves using the sgrid(z,wn) command. To plot multiple
% z and wn curves, use z = zmin:zstep:zmax and wn = wnmin:wnstep:wnmax to
% specify a range of values.
