Estimation Entropy for Regular Linear Switched Systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, we introduce the concept of regular switched systems and we present some consequences of this property on the estimation entropy's calculation. For systems of such a class, one can derive a formula for the estimation entropy in terms of the system's Lyapunov exponents. We also present some sufficient conditions on the system that guarantee regularity. Some of those conditions include the cases of periodic switching, simultaneously triangularizable systems, and a large class of randomly switched systems that contains Markov Jump Linear Systems (MJLS) as a special case. For that last part, we use tools from ergodic theory to draw conclusions that hold almost surely.
