Abstract : Several fast algebraic methods have been developed for the analysis and synthesis of multivariable control systems. Simple and quick methods based on the block-pulse functions and the matrix continued fractions have been derived for rapid model reduction, system identification, models conversion, rational matrix realization, and design of multivariable control systems. Also, computer-aided methods have been developed for determining the solvents, spectral factors of matrix polynomials and for evaluating the block partial fraction expansions of rational matrices. Furthermore, a quick algorithm based on the matrix sign function has been developed for rapid solution of matrix Riccati equation. The algorithm has successfully been applied to develop a fast suboptimal state-space self-tuner for linear stochastic multivariable systems.
