qChapter 17 introduces the gap metric and the n-gap metric. The frequency domain
interpretation and applications of the n-gap metric are discussed.
The controller order reduction in the gap or n-gap metric framework is
also considered.

qChapter 18 considers briefly the problems of model validation and the mixed
real and complex m analysis and synthesis.

qAll computations in the book are done using MATLAB and the m Analysis and Synthesis Toolbox. Many other toolboxes may be used in
the place of m-toolbox.
