On some dynamical properties of linear and affine networks

  • A. de Luca


We consider linear and affine networks (or circuits), whose theory has already been developed by many authors. We represent the matrices of the circuits in a form that seems to be particularly suitable for problems of analysis, synthesis and control of their dynamical behaviour. In particular we refer to the problem of realizing given state reverberations in such nets.
