Outer transfer functions of differential-algebraic systems
We consider differential-algebraic systems whose transfer function is outer: i.e., it has full row rank and all transmission zeros lie in the closed left half complex plane. We characterize outer, with the aid of the Kronecker structure of the system pencil and the Smith-McMillan structure of the transfer function, as the following property of a behavioural stabilizable and detectable realization: each consistent initial value can be asymptotically controlled to zero while the output can be made arbitrarily small in the L2-norm. The zero dynamics of systems with outer transfer functions are analyzed. We further show that our characterizations of outer provide a simple and very structured analysis of the linear-quadratic optimal control problem.
