The optimum feedback control of controllable linear distributed stationary systems is discussed. A linear closed-loop system is assured by restricting the criterion to be the integral of quadratics in the state and control. Feedback is obtained by expansion of the linear closed-loop equation in terms of uncoupled modes. By incorporating symbolic functions into the formulation, one can treat boundary condition control and point observable systems that are null-delta controllable.
