Abstract

The concept of invariance of a subspace under a linear transformation is strongly connected with controllability and observability of linear dynamical systems. In this paper, we definecontrolled andconditioned invariant subspaces as a generalization of the simple invariants, for the purpose of investigating some further structural properties of linear systems. Moreover, we prove some fundamental theorems on which the computation of the above-mentioned subspaces is based. Then, we give two examples of practical application of the previous concepts concerning the determination of the constant output and perfect output controllability subspaces.
