On the balanced truncation of LTV systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This note furthers results on the balanced truncation of stable linear time-varying discrete-time systems. The main result contributes better error bounds than the currently available ones in certain model reduction scenarios; this is demonstrated in an example of a four-mass translational system. Also, this note gives new finite error bounds for the balanced truncation of stable eventually periodic models.
