Least-Squares and Minimum Norm Problems

  • A. Monticelli
Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


In this chapter, the solution and solvability conditions of over- and underdetermined systems of linear equations (Ax = b) and their application to circuit analysis problems are discussed. The related concepts of observability and controllability are reviewed. Nonlinear overdetermined system are also discussed.
