## Abstract

In this chapter stable linear systems are characterized in terms of associated characteristic polynomials and Lyapunov equations. A proof of the Routh theorem on stable polynomials is given as well as a complete description of completely stabilizable systems. Luenberger’s observer is introduced and used to illustrate the concept of detectability.
