Abstract:
First we determine necessary and for some cases also sufficient conditions for a polynomial to be the characteristic polynomial of a matrix with elements in Rmax. Then we indicate how to construct a matrix such that its characteristic polynomial is equal to a given monic polynomial in Smax, the extension of Rmax. Next we use these results to develop a procedure to find the minimal state space realization of a single input single output (SISO) discrete event system, given its Markov parameters.
