This paper addresses the problem of static output feedback (SOF) stabilization for discrete-time LTI systems. We approach this problem using the recently developed periodically time-varying memory state-feedback controller (PTVMSFC) design scheme. A bilinear matrix inequality (BMI) condition which uses a pre-designed PTVMSFC is developed to design the periodically time-varying memory SOF controller (PTVMSOFC). The BMI condition can be solved by using BMI solvers. Alternatively, we can apply two-steps and iterative linear matrix inequality algorithms that alternate between the PTVMSFC and PTVMSOFC designs. Finally, an example is given to illustrate the proposed methods. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
