—The celebrated Kalman–Yakubovič–Popov (KYP) lemma establishes the equivalence between a frequency domain inequality (FDI) and a linear matrix inequality, and has played one of the most fundamental roles in systems and control theory. This paper first develops a necessary and sufficient condition for an-procedure to be lossless, and uses the result to(More)

This paper is concerned with the observer design for one-dimensional linear parabolic partial differential equations whose output is a weighted spatial average of the state over the entire spatial domain. We focus on the backstepping approach, which provides a systematic procedure to design an observer gain for systems with boundary measurement. If the(More)
— A pair of spins is the most simple quantum system that can possess entanglement, a non-classical property playing an essential role in quantum information technologies. In this paper, feedback control problems of the two-spin system conditioned on a continuous measurement are considered. In order to make some useful formulas in stochastic control theory(More)
