# Minimal Robust Positively Invariant Set¶

### Introduction¶

In this example, we implement the method presented in [RKKM05] to compute a robust positively invariant polytope of a linear system under a disturbance bounded by a polytopic set.

We consider the example given in equation (15) of [RKKM05]: $$x^+ = \begin{bmatrix} 1 & 1\\ 0 & 1 \end{bmatrix}x + \begin{bmatrix} 1\\ 1 \end{bmatrix} u • w$$ with the state feedback control $u(x) = -\begin{bmatrix}1.17 & 1.03\end{bmatrix} x$. The controlled system is therefore $$x^+ = \left(\begin{bmatrix} 1 & 1\\ 0 & 1 \end{bmatrix} - \begin{bmatrix} 1\\ 1 \end{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix}1.17 & 1.03\end{bmatrix}\right)x • w = \begin{bmatrix} -0.17 & -0.03\\ -1.17 & -0.03 \end{bmatrix}x • w.$$

The set of disturbance is the unit ball of the infinity norm.

We will use the default library for this example but feel free to pick any other library from this list of available libraries such as CDDLib. The LP solver used to detect redundant points in the V-representation is GLPK. Again, you can replace it with any other solver listed here that supports LP.

The $F_s$ function of equation (2) of [RKKM05] can be implemented as follows.

In [4]:
function Fs(s::Integer, verbose=1)
@assert s ≥ 1
F = W
A_W = W
for i in 1:(s-1)
A_W = A * A_W
F += A_W
if verbose ≥ 1
println("Number of points after adding A^$i * W: ", npoints(F)) end removevredundancy!(F) if verbose ≥ 1 println("Number of points after removing redundant ones: ", npoints(F)) end end return F end  Out[4]: Fs (generic function with 2 methods) We can see below that only the V-representation is computed. In fact, no H-representation was ever computed during Fs. Computing$AW$is done by multiplying all the points by$A$and doing the Minkowski sum is done by summing each pair of points. The redundancy removal is carried out by CDD's internal LP solver. In [5]: @time Fs(4)  Number of points after adding A^1 * W: 16 Number of points after removing redundant ones: 8 Number of points after adding A^2 * W: 32 Number of points after removing redundant ones: 12 Number of points after adding A^3 * W: 48 Number of points after removing redundant ones: 16 3.415742 seconds (5.92 M allocations: 404.045 MiB, 4.50% gc time, 99.95% compilation time)  Out[5]: Polyhedron DefaultPolyhedron{Float64, Polyhedra.Intersection{Float64, Vector{Float64}, Int64}, Polyhedra.Hull{Float64, Vector{Float64}, Int64}}: 16-element iterator of Vector{Float64}: [-1.29, -2.56] [-1.29, -0.5599999999999999] [-0.9500000000000002, 1.7799999999999996] [-0.9380000000000002, 1.8519999999999996] [-0.9022000000000001, 2.0157999999999996] [-0.8980000000000001, 2.0319999999999996] [-0.77, 2.4999999999999996] [-0.71, 2.56] [1.29, 2.56] [1.29, 0.5599999999999999] [0.9500000000000002, -1.7799999999999996] [0.9380000000000002, -1.8519999999999996] [0.9022000000000001, -2.0157999999999996] [0.8980000000000001, -2.0319999999999996] [0.77, -2.4999999999999996] [0.71, -2.56] The Figure 1 of [RKKM05] can be reproduced as follows: In [6]: using Plots plot() for i in 10:-1:1 plot!(Fs(i, 0)) end  The cell needs to return the plot for it to be displayed but the for loop returns nothing so we add this dummy plot! that returns the plot In [7]: plot!()  Out[7]: Now, suppose we want to compute an invariant set by scaling$F_s$by the appropriate$\alpha$. In equation (11) of [RKKM05], we want to check whether$A^s W \subseteq \alpha W$which is equivalent to$W \subseteq \alpha A^{-s} W$. Note that A^s \ W triggers the computation of the H-representation of W and A_W is H-represented. In [8]: function αo(s) A_W = A^s \ W hashyperplanes(A_W) && error("HyperPlanes not supported") return maximum([Polyhedra.support_function(h.a, W) / h.β for h in halfspaces(A_W)]) end  Out[8]: αo (generic function with 1 method) We obtain$\alpha \approx 1.9 \cdot 10^{-5}\$ like in [RKKM05].

In [9]:
α = αo(10)

Out[9]:
1.9190700000000013e-5

The scaled set is is the following:
