A special coordinate basis (SCB) of linear multivariable systems
What is called the special coordinate basis (SCB) of a system plays a dominant role throughout this book. Hence, a clear understanding of the SCB is essential. The purpose of this chapter is to recall the SCB as well as its properties pertinent to this book. The SCB originated in [80,82,83] and was crystallized for strictly proper systems in  and for proper systems in . Our presentation of SCB here omits all the proofs that can be found in the literature.
