Abstract: The linear quadratic regulator (LQR) problem involves designing a regulator for a linear time-invariant state equation with the goal of minimizing a quadratic performance index. We briefly explore the concepts of controllability and observability. Then we analyze the form of the regulator that solves the LQR problem. Lastly, we discuss solving the steady-state LQR problem.
