Linear Quadratic Optimal Control
Linear quadratic optimal control is a collective term for a class of optimal control problems involving a linear input-state-output system and a cost functional that is a quadratic form of the state and the input. The aim is to minimize this cost functional over a given class of input functions. The optimal input depends on the initial condition, but can be implemented by means of a state feedback control law independent of the initial condition. Both the feedback gain and the optimal cost can be computed in terms of solutions of Riccati equations.
