Abstract

In this paper new results in adaptive (generalized) minimum variance control of packet switching computer networks are presented. New solutions, corresponding to the new inverses of the nonsquare polynomial matrices, can be used for design of robust control of multivariable systems with different number of inputs and outputs. Application of polynomial matrix inverses with arbitrary degrees of freedom creates the possibilities to optimal control of computer networks in terms of usage their maximal bandwidth. Simulation examples made in Matlab environment show big potential of presented approach.
