Abstract : By means of the theory of distributional kernels, a sensitivity matrix s(t,tau) is introduced which relates changes in open and closed loop outputs due to changes in a plant parameter. Through equivalence with a passive network scattering matrix, the properties of s for sensitivity improvement are determined. (Author)
