I just realized I should have referenced Best[7] and Gardner[8]
instead a generic control theory book here. Makes more sense in
this setting.

There is also Wolaver[9], which Magnus recommended to me a while
ago. But I have not been able to read enough to know whether
it is a good book to recommend for a beginner, so take this
with a grain of salt.
