Uniform Optimal Control

  • Avraham Feintuch
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 130)


In this chapter we study a class of optimal control problems. To provide motivation we begin with a simple sensitivity minimization problem for a feedback system where Land C are multiplication operators.


Optimal Control Problem Discrete Time System Hankel Operator Standard Problem Coprime Factorization 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
