Serre's reduction aims at reducing the number of unknowns and equations of a linear functional system (e.g., system of partial differential equations, system of differential time-delay equations, system of difference equations). Finding an equivalent representation of a linear functional system containing fewer equations and fewer unknowns generally(More)
— Serre's reduction aims at reducing the number of unknowns and equations of a linear functional system (e.g., system of ordinary or partial differential equations, system of differential time-delay equations, system of difference equations).

A new direct method is presented which reduces a given high-order representation of a control system with delays to a first-order form that is encountered in the study of neutral delay-differential systems. Using the polynomial system description (PMD) setting due to Rosenbrock, it is shown that the transformation connecting the original PMD with the(More)
A direct method is developed that reduces a polynomial system matrix describing a discrete linear repetitive process to a 2-D singular state-space form such that all the relevant properties, including the zero structure of the system matrix, are retained. It is shown that the transformation linking the original polynomial system matrix with its associated(More)
A method based on the elementary operations algorithm (EOA) is developed that reduces a system matrix describing a discrete linear repetitive process to a 2-D nonsingular Roesser form such that all the input-output properties, including the transfer-function matrix, are preserved. Some areas for possible future use/application of the developed results will(More)
