The advent of H∞-control was a truly remarkable innovation in multivariable theory. It eliminated the classical/modern dichotomy that had been a major source of the long-standing skepticism about the applicability of modern control theory, by amalgamating the "philosophy" of classical design with "computation" based on the state-space problem setting. It enhanced the application by deepening the theory mathematically and logically, not by weakening it as was done by the reformers of modern control theory in the early 1970s.
This book provides a natural theoretical framework for the key notions of chain-scattering, the J-lossless factorization and the J-lossless conjugation, and discusses their importance in the advent and development of H8-Control in multivariable theory.
