A Note on Poles and Zeros of Positive Continuous-Time Linear Systems
The notions of zeros and poles of continuous-time positive linear systems are introduced. These notions are based on state-space dynamical characterization of poles and zeros for standard systems and on additional assumptions following from positivity. It is shown that poles and zeros of the positive systems are real numbers. The results are illustrated by simple examples.
