## Abstract

There has been a growing interest in recent years in robust control of systems with parametric uncertainty [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. The dynamic behavior of this type of systems is typically governed by a set of differential equations whose coefficients belong to fairly-known uncertainty regions. Although there are several methods to capture the uncertain nature of a real-world system (e.g., by modeling it as a structured or unstructured uncertainty [6]), it turns out that the most realistic means of describing uncertainty is to parameterize it and then specify its domain of variation.
