Robust Route Realization by Linear-Quadratic Tracking



The problem of a prescribed discrete route realization by a controlled linear system in the presence of unknown bounded disturbance is considered. The problem is solved based on an auxiliary cheap control linear-quadratic differential game. Novel solvability conditions are established. A numerical example is presented.
