The plant is that which is to be controlled with transfer function G(s)
The prefilter and the controller define the control laws of the system.
The open loop signal is the signal that results from the actions of the
prefilter, the controller, the plant and the sensor and has the transfer function
F(s)C(s)G(s)H(s)
The closed loop signal is the output of the system and has the transfer function

Simple Nyquist Theorem:
For the loop transfer function, B(iw), if B(iw) has no poles in the right hand side, expect for simple poles on the imaginary axis, then the system is stable if there are no encirclements of the critical point 1.
