Differential and Difference Riccati Equations
In this chapter, we study the main equations of the finite time optimal closed-loop linear-quadratic control problems, namely, the differential and difference Riccati equations, for both singularly perturbed and weakly coupled systems. A unique approach to the solutions of these Riccati equations is developed by performing the block diagonalization of the corresponding Hamiltonian matrices.
