### Abstract

The intention of the paper is to demonstrate the beauty of geometric interpretations in robust control. We emphasize Klein's approach, i.e., the view in which geometry should be defined as the study of transformations and of the objects that transformations leave unchanged, or invariant. We demonstrate through the examples of the basic control tasks that a natural framework to formulate different control problems is the world that contains as points the equivalence classes determined by the stabilizable plants and whose natural motions are the Möbius transforms. Transformations of certain hyperbolic spaces put light into the relations of the different approaches, provide a common background of robust control design techniques and suggest a unified strategy for problem solutions. Besides the educative value a merit of the presentation for control engineers might be a unified view on the robust control problems that reveals the main structure of the problem at hand and give a skeleton for the algorithmic development.
