MAE 598: LMI Methods in Optimal and Robust Control

LMIs in Control Systems: Analysis, Design and Applications
G.-R. Duan and H.-H. Yu

Linear Matrix Inequalities in System and Control Theory
Boyd, El Ghaoui, Feron and Balakrishnan

A Course in Robust Control Theory: A Convex Approach
G. E. Dullerud and F. Paganini

Taught in Fall, 2016

Introduction: This class considers the basics of modern optimal control theory, with an emphasis on convex optimization and Linear Matrix Inequalities. We cover Mathematical Analysis, State-State Theory, Linear Systems Theory and H-infinity and H-2 optimal control using LMI formulations.

Software: A Modified version of SOSTOOLS for use in combination with code listed in Lecture Notes. This should be used to replace SOSTOOLS and the folder SOSMOD should be added to the Matlab Path.
