Hurwitz DetectabilityEdit

Hurwitz detectability is a dual concept of Hurwitz stabilizability and is defined as the matrix pair  , is said to be Hurwitz detectable if there exists a real matrix   such that   is Hurwitz stable.

The SystemEdit


where  ,  ,  , at any  .

The DataEdit

  • The matrices   are system matrices of appropriate dimensions and are known.

The Optimization ProblemEdit

There exist a symmetric positive definite matrix   and a matrix   satisfying
There exists a symmetric positive definite matrix   satisfying
with   being the right orthogonal complement of  .
There exists a symmetric positive definite matrix   such that
for some scalar  

The LMI:Edit

Matrix pair  , is Hurwitz detectable if and only if following LMI holds



Thus by proving the above conditions we prove that the matrix pair   is Hurwitz Detectable.
