Keywords: Robustness, decentralized control, decentralized estimation, singular values, block Gerschgorin theorem

Abstract: The paper presents a method for analysing the robustness properties of a class of decentralized control systems. Perturbations both in local and in interconnection parameters are dealt with. The method is based on the use of singular values. Several numerical examples are presented to illustrate the method.
