We face the problem of determining a tracking domain of attraction, say the set of initial states starting from which it is possible to track reference signals in given class, for discrete-time systems with control and state constraints. We show that the tracking domain of attraction is exactly equal to the domain of attraction, say the set of states whichâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, we investigate the problem of designing a switching compensator for a plant switching amongst a (finite) family of given configurations (<i>A</i> <sub>i</sub>,<i>B</i> <sub>i</sub>,<i>C</i> <sub>i</sub>). We assume that switching is uncontrolled, namely governed by some arbitrary switching rule, and that the controller has the information ofâ€¦ (More)

In this paper the indoor wireless localization problem is addressed both from the theoretical and application standpoints. The main result of the paper is on the theoretical side: the topological definition of regular and irregular nodes is introduced, and formal results are presented to support regularity as a desirable network property for the attainmentâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, exponential stabilizability of continuous-time positive switched systems is investigated. For two-dimensional systems, exponential stabilizability by means of a switching control law can be achieved if and only if there exists a Hurwitz convex combination of the (Metzler) system matrices. In the higher dimensional case, it is shown by meansâ€¦ (More)
