Abstract : The paper reports a reasonably complete theory of necessary and sufficient conditions for a control to be superior with respect to a non-scalar-valued performance criterion. The latter maps into a finite-dimensional integrally closed directed partially ordered linear space. The applicability of the theory to the analysis of dynamic vector estimation problems and to a class of uncertain optimal control problems is demonstrated. (Author)
