Notes on optimal control and convex optimization
The following notes were developed when I was a postdoc in Prof Na Li's group at Harvard. These notes have not been subjected to the usual scrutiny reserved for formal publications. It is likely you will find typos or errors.
Lecture 1: Problem formulation. [Note]; [Slides]
Lecture 2: Convex reformulation in the Frequency Domain. [Note]; [Slides]
Lecture 3: Youla Parameterization. [Note]; [Slides]
Lecture 4: LMI formulation for H2 and Hinfty optimal control. [Note]; [Slides]
Lecture 5: Distributed Control, QI, and SI. [Note]; [Slides]
