# The Principal Aspects of Sensitivity Theory

Chapter

## Abstract

This chapter summarizes a list of definitions pertinent to sensitivity theory as applied in control theory. The fundamental aspects of sensitivity analysis are reviewed in Sections 2.3 and 2.4, followed by discussions on the preliminary mathematics and aspects of system theory in Sections 2.5 and 2.6. The chapter closes with a brief discussion on synthesis and the *H* ^{∞} -sensitivity minimization.
