such a lot folks be aware of greater than we predict we all know. We additionally imagine we all know greater than we really do-because a few of what we predict we all know easily "ain't so.

20 G. Conte and A. M. Perdon Example 2. Let Σ be a system defined over the ring R[∆] by equations of the form (3), with 00 A= , C= ∆1 . 10 The submodule S = span ∆ 0 is an (A, C) invariant submodule for Σ, since Ker C ∩ S = 0. For every R-linear map G = g1 g2 : Y → X, we have g1 ∆ g1 ∆ 2 g1 . Then (A + GC)S = span is g2 ∆ + 1 g2 (g2 ∆ + 1)∆ contained in S if and only if g2 ∆ + 1 = 0. Since this equation has no solution in R[∆], S is not an (A + GC) invariant submodule. A + GC = Conditions under which a conditioned invariant submodule is feedback invariant are given in [2] and in [13].

As a result of Proposition 6, we find that there is a part of the error dynamics, corresponding to A11 , that can possibly, under additional conditions, be modified by a suitable choice of the component g11 in G (note that the achievement of the condition (A + GC)S ∗ ⊆ S ∗ puts constraints only on the components g12 and g22 , letting the remaining ones, and in particular g11 , free). UIO and RG problems 27 Now, the problem of satisfying the condition det(sI −(A11 +g11 C11 )) ∈ H, as required to solve the UIO problem, can be reduced to that of assigning the coefficients of det(sI − (A11 + g11 C11 )) and we can therefore invoke the results concerning the latter.
