Based upon the popular Robust and Optimal Control by Zhou, et al. (PH, 1995), this book offers a streamlined approach to robust control that reflects the most recent topics and developments in the field.
It features coverage of state-of-the-art topics, including gap metric, v-gap metric, model validation, and real mu.
This text grew from another book by Zhou, Doyle, and Glover, which was primarily a reference; the present volume is intended for a graduate course in multivariable control, though it is also useful as a reference for practicing control engineers interested in state-of-the-art techniques. Some basic knowledge of classical control theory and state-space theory is required. The text includes illustrative examples, many related to MATLAB commands, and numerous exercise problems.
