Least Squares Control Consider a system of m equations in n unknowns, with m < n , of the form 1 y = A x . In these conditions, there are in general many possible values for x that make A x = y . It may be of interest to Fnd such a solution x of minimum (weighted) Euclidean norm, i.e., of minimum x . Example This situation occurs often in the context of control. ±or example, consider the simple discrete-time system x [ i + 1] = ax [ i ] + bu [ i ], with initial condition x [0] = 0. It is desired to bring this system to x [ N ] = y , while minimizing the cost N i =1 | u [ i ] | 2 . This problem can be written as min u u 2 , s.t.
