The fully automated design of optimal or near-optimal feedback controllers is considered for least-pth and minimax cost functions. Solutions are obtained by approximating to the desired optimal output by a rational function. Optimal results for a 2nd-order model and suboptimal responses for the corresponding 7th-order linear system are used to illustrate the method.
