This book about terminal guidance of intercepting missiles is orientedtoward practicing engineers and engineering students. It contains a varietyof newly developed guidance methods based on linear quadratic optimizationproblems. This application-oriented book applies widely used and thoroughlydeveloped theories such LQ and H-infinity to missile guidance. The maintheme is to systematically analyze guidance problems with increasing complexity.Numerous examples help the reader to gain greater understanding of therelative merits and shortcomings of the various methods. Both the analyticalderivations and the numerical computations of the examples are carriedout with MATLAB.
