The Kalman variety of a linear subspace is a vector space consisting of all endomorphisms that have an eigenvector in that subspace. We resolve a conjecture of Ottaviani and Sturmfels and give the minimal defining equations of the Kalman variety over a field of characteristic 0.

Tensors with eigenvectors in a given subspace
This work considers the Kalman variety of tensors having singular t -tuples with the first component in a given linear subspace and proves analogous results, which are new even in the case of matrices, using Chern classes for enumerative computations.


Matrices with eigenvectors in a given subspace
The Kalman variety of a linear subspace in a vector space consists of all endomorphism that possess an eigenvector in that subspace. We study the defining polynomials and basic geometric invariants
Equations and syzygies of some Kalman varieties
Given a subspace L of a vector space V, the Kalman variety consists of all matrices of V that have a nonzero eigenvector in L. Ottaviani and Sturmfels described minimal equations in the case that dim

Homology of analogues of Heisenberg Lie algebras
We calculate the homology of three families of 2-step nilpotent Lie (super)algebras associated with the symplectic, orthogonal, and general linear groups. The symplectic case was considered by
Contributions to the Theory of Optimal Control
This is one of the two ground-breaking papers by Kalman that appeared in 1960—with the other one being the filtering and prediction paper, which deals with linear-quadratic feedback control, and set the stage for what came to be known as LQR (Linear-Quadratic-Regulator) control.
