The SystemEdit

We consider the following system:


where  , are the state vector and the input vector, respectively. Moreover, the state feedback control law is defined as follows:


Thus, the closed-loop system is given by:


The DataEdit


The Optimization ProblemEdit

Find a matrix   such that,


According to the definition of the spectral norms of matrices, this condition becomes equivalent to:


One can use the Lemma 1.2 in [1] page 14, the aforementioned inequality can be converted into:


The LMI: LMI for Schur stabilizationEdit

Title and mathematical description of the LMI formulation.



This problem is a special case of Intensive Disk Region Design (page 230 in [1]). This problem may not have a solution even when the system is stabilizable. In other words, once there exists a solution, the solution is robust in the sense that when there are parameter perturbations, the closed-loop system's eigenvalues are not easy to go outside of a circle region within the unit circle [1].
