Aspects of Optimization-Based CADCS.
With the recent dramatic increase in available computing power, numerical optimization has become an attractive tool for the design of complex engineering systems. Yet, generalized use of numerical optimization techniques ...
On the Stability of Polynomials with Uncoupled Perturbations in the Coefficients of Even and Odd Powers.
In this note, we present some results concerning the stability (in Hurwitz' sense) of a family of polynomials with even and odd coefficients subject to uncoupled perturbations. It is shown that the stability of an appropriate ...
A Method for Computing the Distance of a Stable Matrix to the Set of Unstable Matrices.
We propose a method to compute the spectral norm distance from a given matrix A to the set of matrices having at least an eigenvalue on the imaginary axis. It is shown that the distance is one of the roots of a suitably ...
A New Formula for the Structured Singular Value.

On Robust Stability of Linear State Space Models.
The structured singular value (MU), introduced by Doyle  allows to analyze robust stability and performance of linear systems affected by parametric as well as dynamic uncertainty. While exact computation of MU can be ...
On Block Limiting Norm and Structured Singular Value.
The notion of limiting norm, introduced by Pokrovskii (Soviet Math. Dokl., vol. 20, pp. 1314-1317, 1979), is generalized to that of block limiting norm. A resemblance of inequalities shared by both the block limiting norm ...
Structured Singular Value and Geometry of the m-Form Numerical Range.
Although the question of the numerical evaluation of Doyle's structured singular value has been repeatedly addressed, it is not yet entirely resolved in the case of block structures of size larger than 3. It has been shown ...
Characterization and Efficient Computation of the Structures Singular Value.
The concept of structured singular value was recently Introduced by Doyle (Proc. IEEE, vol. 129, pp. 242-250, 1982) as a tool for the analysis and synthesis of feedback systems with structured uncertainties. It is a key ...
Two Case Studies in Optimization-Based Computer-Aided Design of Control Systems.
There have been many approaches proposed for the computer-aided design of control systems. The co-authors of this paper include several strong proponents of a design methodology emphasizing designer's intuition, man-machine ...
