Abstract:
The max-plus algebra is one of the frameworks that can be used to model discrete event systems. One of the open problems in the max-plus-algebraic system theory for discrete event systems is the minimal realization problem. In this paper we present some results for a simplified version of the general minimal realization problem: the boolean minimal realization problem, i.e., we consider models in which the entries of the system matrices are either equal to the max-plus-algebraic zero element or to the max-plus-algebraic identity element.
