This paper addresses the following problem: Given an arbitrary interconnected system M which is composed of N subsystems of the form Ai + BiKi, i=1,...,N, (Ai, Bi) a controllable pair, then is it possible to arbitrarily assign the characteristic polynomial of M by a suitable selection of the characteristic polynomials of Ai + BiKi? Moreover is it possible… CONTINUE READING
