PAUT54A1: MiniCourse on LMI and SOS Methods in Control (16.5 Credit Hours)

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

Taught in January, 2013 at the University Joseph Fourier / Grenoble, INP

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.
