Stabilization of positive linear systems

  title={Stabilization of positive linear systems},
  author={Patrick De Leenheer and Dirk Aeyels},
  journal={Systems & Control Letters},
We consider stabilization of equilibrium points of positive linear systems which are in the interior of the 1rst orthant. The existence of an interior equilibrium point implies that the system matrix does not possess eigenvalues in the open right half plane. This allows to transform the problem to the stabilization problem of compartmental systems, which is known and for which a solution has been proposed already. We provide necessary and su5cient conditions to solve the stabilization problem… CONTINUE READING
