A basic requirement in control systems is a metric that measures discrepancies between actual and desired states. For statistically influenced systems information geometric methods provide natural Riemannian metrics on smooth spaces of states; such manifolds arise in minimum-phase linear systems and multi-input systems with known stochastic noise. Commonly recurring practical situations are `nearly' Poisson or `nearly' Uniform with a complementarity in the geometry of these two; another involves multivariate Gaussians and their mixtures. Similarly we encounter `nearly' independent Poisson, and `nearly' independent Gaussian processes. For such cases we have information geometric results and examples. Some of these methods are applicable to control systems for statistically influenced processes, such as monitoring essential features in continuous production of threads, films, foils and fibre networks, and batch processing of stochastic textures.
