Application of Analytic Centers to Feedback Design for Systems with Uncertainties

  • György Sonnevend
Part of the Progress in Systems and Control Theory book series (PSCT, volume 6)


Generalizing the classical notion of the “central”, or “maximum entropy” solution of moment problems of the Nevanlinna-Pick type to the notion of a central solution for general, convex systems of inequalities, we present new algorithms for solving several classes of problems of robust feedback design, providing also new methods for ellipsoidal approximations of the state vector in the case of fixed saturation bounds for the controls and disturbances.
