Discrete time \({\mathcal H}_\infty\) controllers satisfying a minimum entropy criterion. (English) Zbl 0701.93027

Summary: A discrete time, minimum entropy \({\mathcal H}_{\infty}\) control problem is solved and state space formulae are derived. The solution is obtained from this principles and so avoids the reformulation of the problem to a continuous time problem via a bilinear transformation.
