Computation of the H∞-Norm via Optimization over Structured Pseudospectra

This algorithm is based on the relation between the H-norm and the structured complex stability radius of a transfer function. A nested iteration is used. In the inner iteration, the rightmost point of a structured ε-pseudospectrum is computed for a fixed ε. In the outer iteration, ε is updated via Newton steps to determine the value of ε for which the structured ε-pseudospectrum touches the imaginary axis.
