Analysis and synthesis of linear dynamic systems with emphasis on structural properties for control and observation.

This Technical Committee focuses on the study of dynamical systems and phenomena in which linearity plays a fundamental role.

It fosters the development of tools, methods and approaches for analysis and synthesis of dynamical systems described by linear differential and/or difference equations, including finite-dimensional time-invariant and time-variant systems, infinite-dimensional systems, descriptor and singular systems, n-dimensional systems, systems with time-delays, positive systems, fractional systems, complex systems and variable structure systems.

It promotes investigation of the structural properties which are related to linearity and the use of a control theoretic point of view in the solution of modeling, monitoring and control problems in engineering and other applied fields.
