Optimal state-feedback control under sparsity and delay constraints
Andrew Lamperski, Laurent Lessard
This paper presents the solution to a general decentralized state-feedback problem, in which the plant and controller must satisfy the same combination of delay constraints and sparsity constraints. The control problem is decomposed into independent subproblems, which are solved by dynamic programming. In special cases with only sparsity or only delay constraints, the controller reduces to existing solutions.
