Abstract:

The purpose of the paper is to investigate the problem of observability of nonlinear systems. Two sufficient conditions of global observability of nonlinear systems are presented 1 the ratio condition which is the generalization of Fujisawa and Kuhs ratio condition of circuit theory, 2 the strongly positive semidefinite condition. The relationships between these two conditions as well as the condition of positive definiteness of Fitts are given. Author
