Linear, stationary systems with multiple inputs when subject to performance indices quadratic in the state variables, but explicitly independent of the control variables, may be optimally governed by singular control. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the optimality of both partially singular control and totally singular control are obtained. Moreover, explicit formulae are presented for both open-loop and linear-feedback implementations of the optimal singular control.
