Abstract : The paper develops techniques for interrelating the inputs to two separate dynamic systems when it is required that the output of each satisfy a functional relationship. The dynamic systems chosen have only poles in their transfer function descriptions. Under this and other restrictions a time-optimal problem is formulated in which the inputs to both dynamic systems are amplitude constrained. Some conditions which must be satisfied by an optimum solution are then obtained. (Author)
