Abstract : The purpose of this report is to indicate, in an informal manner, the possibility of constructing a digital computer program which can compute automatically the transfer function of a feedback compensator given the transfer function of the open loop plant and the statistical properties of any disturbance and/or measurement noise. The internal computations are based on the solution of the linear stochastic optimal control problem in state variable format. However, the answer is computed in the frequency domain because the feedback compensator is described in a partial fraction (Heavyside) expansion of the transfer function. (Author)
