A new vertex result for robustness problems with interval matrix uncertainty. (English) Zbl 1154.93023
Summary: This paper addresses a family of robustness problems in which the system under consideration is affected by interval matrix uncertainty. The main contribution of the paper is a new vertex result that drastically reduces the number of extreme realizations required to check robust feasibility. This vertex result allows one to solve, in a deterministic way and without introducing conservatism, the corresponding robustness problem for small and medium size problems. For example, consider quadratic stability of an autonomous n x dimensional system. In this case, instead of checking 2 n x 2 vertices, we show that it suffices to check 2 2n x specially constructed systems. This solution is still exponential, but this is not surprising because the problem is NP-hard. Finally, vertex extensions to multiaffine interval families and some sufficient conditions (in LMI form) for robust feasibility are presented. Some illustrative examples are also given.
