Controllability of Linear Dynamic Systems

Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 109)


Consider the linear purely dynamic system described by the mathematical model
$$ \underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{\dot x} = A\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{x} + B\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{u} $$
, where x ∈ Rn is the state vector, u ∈ Rm the input vector, y ∈ Rs the output vector; A, B, C constant n×n, n×m and s×m matrices.
