Quantitative Feedback Theory (QFT), a robust control design method introduced by Horowitz, has been shown to be useful in many cases of multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) parametrically uncertain systems. Prominent is the capability for direct design to closed-loop frequency response specifications. In this paper, the theory and development of optimization-based algorithms for design of minimum-gain controllers is presented, including an illustrative example. Since MIMO QFT design is reduced to a series of equivalent single-input, single-output (SISO) designs, the emphasis is on the SISO case.
