Abstract:

A multivariable system may be conveniently represented either by a matrix of transfer functions or by a set of first-order differential equations. The mode of representation depends on the nature of the problem and the constraints involved. The relative merits of several methods as well as their inherent limitations are treated. Concepts such as controllability, observability, structure and interaction which are peculiar to multivariable systems are examined to form a basis for the comparison. Author
