Abstract : This thesis considers the control of dynamic systems that experience abrupt, structural changes at random times. These changes are caused by phenomena such as component failures and repairs, and large environmental distrubances. The author proposes extensions of the well-known linear quadratic Gaussian (LOG) control methodology to systems having randomly jumping structures and parameters that are described by reliability-theoretic models. It is called the jump linear quadratic (LJQ) control problem.
