Feedback Linearization of Discrete-Time Systems

  • J. W. Grizzle
Part of the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences book series (LNCIS, volume 83)


Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for a nonlinear discrete-time system to be feedback equivalent to a controllable linear system. Some preliminary work on the effects of sampling on feedback linearizability is reported.
