## Abstract

This paper is concerned with infinite-horizon growth rates of quadratic-exponential functionals (QEFs) for linear quantum stochastic systems driven by multichannel bosonic fields. Such risk-sensitive performance criteria impose an exponential penalty on the integral of a quadratic function of the system variables, and their minimization improves robustness properties of the system with respect to quantum statistical uncertainties and makes its behavior more conservative in terms of tail distributions. We use a frequency-domain representation of the QEF growth rate for the invariant Gaussian quantum state of the system with vacuum input fields in order to compute it in state space. The QEF rate is related to a similar functional for a classical stationary Gaussian random process generated by an infinite cascade of linear systems. A truncation of this shaping filter allows the QEF rate to be computed with any accuracy by solving a recurrent sequence of algebraic Lyapunov equations together with an algebraic Riccati equation. The state-space computation of the QEF rate and its comparison with the frequency-domain results are demonstrated by a numerical example for an open quantum harmonic oscillator.
