Control processes of the form\(\dot x - A(t) x = B(t) u(t)\), which are normal with respect to the unit ballB p′, r′ of the control spaceL p′([τ, T]),l m r ′ are characterized in terms ofH(t)=X(T)X −1(t),B(t),X(t) any fundamental matrix solution of\(\dot x - A(t)x = 0\), and directly in terms ofA, B, when bothA andB are independent oft.
