Abstract

The problem of finding the mapping between unimoduar transformations relating two minimal matrix fraction descriptions (MFDs) of a transfer function, and the similarity transformations relating the respective minimal state-space representations is considered. It is shown that the problem is equivalent to finding the relation of MFDs of the input-state transfer functions of the two systems. This relation turns out to be an equivalence relation involving the unimodular and the similarity matrices relating the MFDs and the state-space systems, respectively. A canonical form for MFDs under this equivalence relation is obtained and it is shown that it leads to a canonical state-space representation, via a realisation procedure.
