The problem of mixed H2/H∞ control is considered for a class of uncertain discrete-time nonlinear stochastic systems. The nonlinearities are described by statistical means of the stochastic variables and the uncertainties are represented by deterministic norm-bounded parameter perturbations. The mixed H2/H∞ control problem is formulated in terms of the notion of exponentially mean-square quadratic stability and the characterisations of both the H2 control performance and the H∞ robustness performance. A new technique is developed to deal with the matrix trace terms arising from the stochastic nonlinearities and the well-known S-procedure is adopted to handle the deterministic uncertainities. A unified framework is established to solve the addressed mixed H2/H∞ control problem using a linear matrix inequality approach. Within such a framework, two additional optimisation problems are discussed, one is to optimise the H∞ robustness performance, and the other is to optimise the H2 control performance. An illustrative example is provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
