The concept of feedback
reasoning about a feedback system is difficult because the first system influences
the second and the second system influences the first, leading to a circular argument.
This makes reasoning based on cause and effect tricky, and it is necessary to analyze

is often counterintuitive, and it is therefore necessary to resort to formal methods
to understand them.
