This book provides a comprehensive, step-by-step treatment of the state-space H à control theory, reflecting recent theoretical developments this area, in particular, and in the area of robust and H à control theory in general. It offers as self-contained a presentation as possible and, for reference sake, includes many background results on linear systems, the theory and application of Riccati equations and model reduction.
A comprehensive treatment, for graduate students and control engineers. Contains chapters on linear algebra and dynamical systems; performance specifications and limitations; Hankel norm approximation; model uncertainty and robustness; algebraic Riccati equations; loop shaping; controller order reduction; and discrete time control. Exercises are available on the Internet. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
