Abstract:

The lecture notes are devoted to a detailed examination of the fundamental system-theoretic concepts of controllability, observability, reachability and determinability, and of the roles they play in certain specific areas of research in modern system theory. The mathematical models employed in this study range in sophistication from linear, constant coefficient, differential equations to nonlinear, time-varying functional-differential equations. Much of the material, especially that dealing with functional-differential systems is of very recent origin, and in many cases enables well known older results in controllability theory to be embedded within newer more general ones. An overall objective has been to incorporate a certain amount of self-containment and breadth in the presentation. Nonetheless, various aspects of the subject have not been covered. Author
