We present an approach for feedback design which is based on recent developments in analytic interpolation with a degree constraint. Performance is cast as an interpolation problem with bounded analytic functions. Minimizers of a certain weighted-entropy functional provide interpolants having degree less than the number of constraints. The choice of weight parameterizes all such bounded degree solutions. However, the relationship between the weights and the shape of corresponding transfer functions is not direct. Thus, in this paper we develop a formalism that guides weight selection.
