This paper is devoted to the null-controllability problem for linear, autonomous, discrete-time systems with restrained controls, i.e., systems described by the equationxk+1=Axk+uk,uk∈ Г, where 0 ∈ Г, but is not necessarily an interior point of Г. Some criteria for local and global null controllability are given with proofs. These results can be considered as extensions to discrete-time systems of the known corresponding criteria for linear, continuous-time systems.
