Maximal output admissible sets for discrete-time systems with disturbance inputs
TLDR
The paper considers discrete-time linear systems with constrained disturbance inputs, w(t)/spl isin/Y/spl sub/R/sup m/, t/spl is in/Z/sup +/, and constrained outputs, y(t) isin /spl infin// when Y is a polyhedron; the set of all such states is the maximal output admissible set, O/sub /spl Infin//.
