## On the maximal output set of fractional-order discrete-time linear systems

In this paper, we consider a linear discrete-time fractional-order system defined by \[\Delta ^{\alpha }x_ {k+1}=Ax_k+B u_k, \quad k \geq 0, \quad x_{0} \in \mathbb{R}^{n};\] \[y_{k}=Cx_k, \quad k \geq 0,\] where $A$, $B$ and $C$ are appropriate matrices, $x_{0}$ is the initial state, $\alpha$ is the order of the derivative, $y_k$ is the signal output and $u_k=K x_k$ is feedback control. By defining the fractional derivative in the Grunwald–Letnikov sense, we investigate the characterization of the maximal output set, $\Gamma(\Omega)=\lbrace x_{0} \in \mathbb{R}^{n}/y_
