The recursive reduced-order numerical solution of the singularly perturbed matrix differential Riccati equation. (English) Zbl 0649.93023

Under stabilizability-observability conditions imposed on a singularly perturbed system, an efficient numerical method for solving the corresponding matrix differential Riccati equation is obtained in terms of reduced-order problems. The order reduction is achieved via the use of the Chang transformation applied to the Hamiltonian matrix of a singularly perturbed linear-quadratic control problem. In addition, an efficient numerical recursive algorithm with quadratic rate of convergence is developed for solving algebraic equations comprising the Chang transformation.
