Reachability and controllability of switched linear discrete-time systems
This note investigates the reachability and controllability issues for switched linear discrete-time systems. Geometric characterization of controllability is presented. For reversible systems, the controllable sets and the reachable sets are identified in Wonham's geometric approach, and verifiable conditions for reachability and controllability are also presented.
