Repetitive processes propagate information in two independent directions where the duration of one of these is infinite.

They pose control problems that cannot be solved by application of results for other classes of 2D systems. This paper develops robust controller design algorithms for discrete linear processes based on the poly-quadratic stability that produce less conservative results than currently available alternatives.
