Sensitivity Optimization

In this chapter, the further development and application of matrix least squares optimization techniques is made to minimizing linear system parameter sensitivity measures. Even for scalar linear systems, the sensitivity of the system transfer function with respect to the system state space realization parameters is expressed in terms of norms of matrices. Thus a matrix least squares approach is a very natural choice for sensitivity minimization. See also Helmke and Moore (1993), Yan and Moore (1992) and Yan, Moore and Helmke (1993).
