On the asymptotic output sensitivity problem for a discrete linear systems with an uncertain initial state

This paper studies a finite-dimensional discrete linear system whose initial state $x_0$ is unknown.  We assume that the system is augmented by two output equations, the first one $z_i$ being representing measurements made on the unknown state of the system and the other $y_i$ being representing the corresponding output.  The purpose of our work is to introduce two control laws, both in closed-loop of measurements $z_i$ and whose goal is to reduce asymptotically the effects of the unknown part of the initial state $x_0$.  The approach that we present consists of both theoretical and algorit

Computation of positive stable realizations for discrete-time linear systems

Sufficient conditions for the existence of positive stable realizations for given proper transfer matrices are established. Two methods are proposed for determination of the positive stable realizations for given proper transfer matrices. The effectives of the proposed procedures is demonstrated on numerical examples.
