Abstract:

Krishnaswamy et. al. propose a second order state space equation for describing a system and claim that this new method offers certain advantages. At first sight, their claims appear to be valid. However, a closer examination reveals that one cannot expect any such advantages with this new formulation of state space equations. Counter examples are given to substantiate this statement.
