Abstract : The report is based on the decoupling theory developed by Gilbert and the computer program developed by Gilbert and Pivnichny. The general objective is a design technique for multivariable control systems which involves decoupling minimization of error and control amplitudes and the reduction of the effects of disturbance inputs and plant parameter variations. Computer realization of this objective is in part demonstrated by a number of practical examples, including several involving flight control. (Author)
