The problems considered here have cost v(x_{o}, u) , a quadratic in (x_{o}, u) , wherexois interpreted as an initial condition and u as an unconstrained control variable. The aim is to choose u rationally when the only measurement available is the partial linear measurement y_{o} = Cx_{o} and when u should be desirable for every xoconsistent with the measurement yo. A dominance concept is introduced which facilitates suitable choice of u . Properties of such u are studied. The results are applied to the standard linear regulator, giving an open-loop control dependent on yo, and to the problem of choosing the initial conditions for dynamic compensators.
