Abstract

In the last three chapters we have developed synthesis techniques for feedback systems where the plant model was completely specified, in the sense that given any input there is a uniquely determined output. Also our plant models were linear, time invariant, and finite dimensional. We now return our focus to analysis, but move beyond our previous restriction of having complete system knowledge to the consideration of uncertain systems.
