This paper investigates the stabilizability of uncertain linear time-invariant (LTI) systems via structurally constrained controllers. First, an LTI uncertain system is considered whose state-space matrices depend polynomially on the uncertainty vector, defined over some region. It is shown that if the system is stabilizable by a structurally constrained controller in one point belonging to the region, then it is stabilizable by a controller with the same structure in all points belonging to the region, except for those located on an algebraic variety. Thus, if a system is stabilizable via a constrained controller at the nominal point, then it is almost always stabilizable at any operating point around the nominal model. It is also shown how this algebraic variety (or the dominant subvariety of it) can be computed efficiently. The results obtained in this paper encompass a broad range of the existing results in the literature on robust stability of the LTI systems, in addition to new ones.
