State maps for linear systems

Rapisarda, Paolo and Willems, Jan C. (1997) State maps for linear systems SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, 35, (3), pp. 1053-1091.

Record type: Article


Modeling of physical systems consists of writing the equations describing a phenomenon and yields as a result a set of differential-algebraic equations. As such, state-space models are not a natural starting point for modeling, while they have utmost importance in the simulation and control phase. The paper addresses the problem of computing state variables for systems of linear differential-algebraic equations of various forms. The point of view from which the problem is considered is the behavioral one, as put forward in [J. C. Willems, Automatica J. IFAC, 22 (1986), pp. 561–580; DynamicsReported,2(1989),pp.171–269;IEEETrans.Automat.Control,36(1991),pp. 259–294].
