Summary: An eigenvalue based framework is developed for the \({\mathcal{H}}_\infty \) norm analysis and its norm minimization of coupled systems with time-delays, which are naturally described by delay differential algebraic equations (DDAEs). For these equations \({\mathcal{H}}_\infty \) norms are analyzed and their sensitivity with respect to small delay perturbations is studied. Subsequently, numerical methods for the \({\mathcal{H}}_\infty \) norm computation and for designing controllers minimizing the \({\mathcal{H}}_\infty \) norm with a prescribed structure or order, based on a direct optimization approach, are briefly addressed. The effectiveness of the approach is illustrated with a software demo. The chapter concludes by pointing out the similarities with the computation and optimization of characteristic roots of DDAEs.
