Correspondingly, we combine all input-, output- and state-signals to form the vectors .

vectors and the causal shift-down operator Z we can rewrite the state space equations (1) as
Z −1 x
y = A·x+B·u = C ·x+D·u (4) Starting out from equation (4) we can eliminate the state vector x to arrive at a description of the output
signal y only depending on the input signal u and the state space realization
x = y = −1 (1 − ZA) ZBu

of the linear fractional transformation (LFT)
−1 T = D + C (1 − ZA) ZB , (6) which is given in terms of the state space realization matrices and the shift operator. This representation
of the Toeplitz operator has an obvious structural resemblance with the standard transfer function representation for time-invariant state-space systems. However, note that Z is the matrix representation of the
shift operator and not a complex variable; the state-space matrices A, B , C and D are block-diagonal
matrices. Construction of Transfer Operator
A look at Equation (6) does not immediately reveal that this linear fractional transformation based
on block-diagonal matrices does actually represent the Toeplitz operator as shown in Equation (3). In
this section we actually plug in in the block-diagonal matrices in (6) to verify the correctness of this

. We can savely assume that the dimensions of the block-entries of all matrices are compatible to make the
matrix multiplications meaningful. We ﬁrst have a closer look at the middle part of Equation (6), which
can be represented by the Neuman expansion, which comparable to geometric series for scalar quantities
