For a class of infinite-dimensional linear systems with nonlinear outputs, and using a differential game-theoretic approach, we obtain a set of necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a state-feedback controller under which a given H bound (on disturbance attenuation) is achieved. Characterization of such a controller is given, and the result is applied to a disturbance attenuation problem with control constraints.
