ABSTRACT
This paper presents necessary and su∆cient conditions for the existence of a feedback
compensator that will render a given continuous-time or discrete-time linear system
SPR. When these conditions hold, the controller is explicitely found.
1 INTRODUCTION
The concepts of Positive-Real (PR) and Strictly-Positive-Real (SPR) functions and
matrices have been very useful in network theory [1], adaptive control [2] and ro-
bust control [3]. These concepts have also been generalized to include discrete-time
systems [4] and [5]. The importance of PR and SPR matrices is obvious when
dealing with uncertain systems. In this situation, a nominal SPR transfer function
allows for large passive uncertainties without the loss of stability [2] and [5]. The
standard de nition of SPR matrices [6], here termed strong SPR, is usually di∆-
cult to apply. Moreover, it was recently shown [7] that the strong SPR de nition
