Abstract [en]

In 1968, Witsenhausen introduced his celebrated counterexample, which illustrated that when an information pattern is nonclassical, the controllers which optimize an expected quadratic cost may be nonlinear. It is shown here that for the Witsenhausen Counterexample, when one instead considers the induced norm, then linear controllers are in fact optimal.
