Abstract : This objective of this project were (1) to prove convergence theorems for probability-one homotopy methods applied to H2 and combined H2/H to infinity optimal model order reduction and controller synthesis problems, and (2) to develop a robust, fixed-structure MATLAB toolbox. This report consist of a paper on convergence theory for homotopy control algorithms, and a user's guide for a MATLAB toolbox. The toolbox is available on the World Wide Web at URL http://www.cs.vt.edu/1tw/toolbox/.
