Within a linear algebraic framework, we present a new characterization of the class of nonlinear systems which are equivalent to a prime system. We then introduce a class of generalized output transformations that can be thought of as a generalization to the nonlinear setting of a unimodular transformation in the output space. Our main result gives necessary and suucient conditions for equivalence to a prime system under a certain group of transformations that includes generalized output… CONTINUE READING
