An overview of a number of approaches to the multiobjective control problem is given. In practice, this problem usually boils down to a mixed-norm optimization, where traditionally the norms of interest are H2, H8 and l1. To capture different, often conflicting, design specifications a single-norm form is usually not enough and therefore a mixed-norm formalism combining these norms would be of considerable interest. Although it would be nice to have all three norms present, most approaches focus on the two-norm problem. Frequently encountered is the H2/H8 mixed-norm optimization problem, but combinations of l1 and the other two norms are starting to get more attention. It will be seen that the solution to the mixed-norm optimization problem has not yet reached a final shape, since most methods still exhibit problems, like not being able to find a solution if performance specifications are tight, or generating high-order or too conservative controllers, etc
