Abstract:
We demonstrate that the minimal state space realization problem in the max algebra can be transformed into an Extended Linear Complementarity Problem (ELCP). We use an algorithm that finds all solutions of an ELCP to find all equivalent minimal state space realizations of a single input single output (SISO) discrete event system. We also give a geometrical description of the set of all minimal realizations of a SISO max-linear discrete event system.
