Domination in Controlled and Observed Distributed Parameter Systems


We consider and we study a general concept of domination for controlled and observed distributed systems. We give characterization results and the main properties of this notion for controlled systems, with respect to an output operator. We also examine the case of actuators and sensors. Various other situations are considered and applications are given. Then, we extend this study by comparing observed systems with respect to a control operator. Finally, we study the relationship between the notion of domination and the compensation one, in the exact and weak cases.
