(1) Let the linear equation to be solved be [ ] u B x A dt x d ] [ + = (2) where [A] is a NxN real constant matrix and [B] is a NxM real constant matrix and u is a Mtuple vector. The difficulty in solving (2) is that [A] is generally not a diagonal matrix and therefore the states x 1 , x 2 ,..x N are coupled together. Let us make a transformation from the xspace to a qspace using a transformation NxN transformation matrix [S], which is yet to be determined: [ ] q S x = (3) There is an inverse transformation by the inverse matrix [S]1 : [ ] x S q 1 = (4) Substituting (3) in (2) u B q S A dt q d S ] [ ] ][ [ ] [ + = (5) Premultiplying (5) by [S]1 u B S q S A S dt q d ] [ ] [ ] ][ [ ] [ 1 1 + = (6) Suppose we can find the matrix [S] such that ] [ ] ][ [ ] [ 1 = S A S (7) where = N ....
