"The principal aim of this thesis is to present a new index of performance which when minimized will simultaneously optimize the system energy and sensitivity function of a multivariable linear control system. With this performance index it is usually desirable to discriminate between the sensitivity factor and the energy term by weighting them differently. Two types of weighting factors are presented. Since it is not easy to minimize that performance index for all types of problems, further research is suggested to find methods of solution for such problems. Illustrative examples demonstrate the optimization process and the type of assumptions needed for solving such a problem"--Abstract, page ii.
