The first fundamental issue one faces in an H optimization problem, is when, or under what conditions a γ suboptimal controller exists. Fortunately, the problem regarding the existence conditions of γ-suboptimal controllers for either the regular or singular type of continuous-time or discrete-time systems has almost been completely solved in the literature. As it was mentioned in the introduction, there were four main different approaches developed in early years, which include: 1) Interpolation approach (see e.g., Limbeer and Anderson [77]); 2) Frequency domain approach (see e.g., Doyle [47], Francis [54] and Glover [57]); 3) Polynomial approach (see e.g., Kwakernaak [69]); and 4) J-spectral factorization approach (see e.g., Kimura [67]). All these techniques mainly deal with the regular problem.
