State Vector


a quantity that plays the same role in quantum theory as does the wave function. The square of the absolute value (modulus) of a state vector indicates the probability of the state.

The synthesis of the observer (27) is reduced [18] to determining the observer gain coefficients [G.sub.i] by minimization of the error vector of the recovery of the state vector x(t) of the initial system (25) and maximization of the same norm of the error vector along the plant uncertainty vector [eta](t) and the vector of external signal influences [omega](t), which also corresponds to the worst case disturbance.
