Abstract
This thesis addresses the H[infinity] optimal control theory. It is shown that SISO H[infinity] optimal control problems are equivalent to weighted WienerHopf optimization in the sense that there exists a weighting function such that the solution of the weighted H2 optimization problem also solves the given H[infinity] problem. The weight is identified as the maximum magnitude Hankel singular vector of a particular function in H[infinity] constructed from the data of the problem at hand, and thus a statespace expression for it is obtained. An interpretation of the weight as the worstcase disturbance in an optimal disturbance rejection problem is discussed.
A simple approach to obtain all solutions for the Nehari extension problem for a given performance level [gamma] is introduced. By a limit taking procedure we give a parameterization of all optimal solutions for the Nehari's problem.
Using an imbedding idea [12], it is proven that fourblock general distance problem can be treated as a oneblock problem. Using this result an elementary method is introduced to find a parameterization for all solutions to the fourblock problem for a performance level [gamma].
The set of optimal solutions for the fourblock GDP is obtained by treating the problem as a oneblock problem. Several possible kinds of optimality are identified and their solutions are obtained.
