We develop a linear systems theory that coincides with the existing theories for continuous and discrete dynamical systems, but that also extends to linear systems defined on nonuniform time scales. The approach here is based on generalized Laplace transform methods (e.g. shifts and convolution) from the recent work [13]. We study controllability in terms of the controllability Gramian and various rank conditions (including Kalman's) in both the time invariant and time varying settings and compare the results. We explore observability in terms of both Gramian and rank conditions and establish related realizability results. We conclude by applying this systems theory to connect exponential and BIBO stability problems in this general setting. Numerous examples are included to show the utility of these results.

    • "It seems that these concepts in the classical linear control systems (for both continuous-time and discrete-time cases) are quite well investigated. In last years some of theirs extensions on nonuniform time domain have been done; see, for example, [1] [2]. The other extension of the classical theory of control systems is introducing instead of the classical time derivative a fractional one (see, e.g., [3] [4]) or instead of the classical difference operator a fractional difference (see, e.g., [5] [6] [7]).

    ABSTRACT: The problem of controllability to a given convex target set of linear fractional systems with h -difference fractional operator of Caputo type is studied. Necessary and sufficient conditions of controllability with constrained controllers for such systems are given. Problem of approximation of a continuous-time system with Caputo fractional differential by a discrete-time system with h -difference fractional operator of Caputo type is discussed.

    • "Here we examine controllability, reachability, and observability in the time-invariant case. It should be noted that there have been other excellent attempts to do so, e.g., in [2], [3], [7], [8]. They all examine the linear system "

    ABSTRACT: In the paper, we unify and extend some basic properties for linear control systems as they appear in the continuous and discrete cases. In particular, we examine controllability, reachability, and observability for time-invariant systems and establish a duality principle.

    • "The regressive linear system x ∆ (t) = A(t)x(t) + B(t)u(t), x(t 0 ) = x 0 , (3) is controllable on [t 0 , t f ] if given any initial state x 0 there exists a rd-continuous input signal u(t) such that the corresponding solution of the system satisfies x(t f ) = x f . From Davis et al. [15] it is known that invertibility of the Gramiam matrix "

    ABSTRACT: A fundamental result in linear system theory is the development of a linear state feedback stabilizer for time-varying systems under suitable controllability constraints. This result was previously restricted to systems operating on the continuous (¿) and uniform discrete (h¿) time domains with constant step size h. Using the framework of dynamic equations on time scales, we construct a linear state feedback stabilizer for time-varying systems on arbitrary time domains.
