This paper shows that, for time varying systems, global asymptotic controllability to a given closed subset of the state space is equivalent to the existence of a continuous control-Lyapunov function with respect to the set.
Weak controllability of bilinear systems is preserved under sampling provided that the sampling period satisfies a condition related to the eigenvalues of the autonomous dynamics matrix.
It is shown that a control system in Rn is asymptotically controllable to the origin if and only if there exists a positive definite continuous functional of the states whose derivative can be made negative by appropriate choices of controls.

  Controllability - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Controllability is an important property of a control system, and the controllability property plays a crucial role in many control problems, such as stabilization of unstable systems by feedback, or optimal control.
Controllability and observability are dual aspects of the same problem.
Note that controllability does not mean that once you reach a state that you will be able to keep it there, merely that you can reach that state.

 PlanetMath: controllability
A control system is said to be (completely) controllable if, for all initial times and all initial states, there exists some input function (or sequence for discrete systems) that drives the state vector to any final state at some finite time.
This is version 3 of controllability, born on 2004-08-05, modified 2004-08-10.
Object id is 6073, canonical name is Controllability.

 "Encyclopedia of Mental Health: Shyness"
It is also important to distinguish between cultural values that promote shyness as a social control mechanism or a desired form of modesty and respect for authority, on one hand and personal values on the other hand that make shyness an undesirable constraint on autonomy and self-development.
Controlled studies are needed to assess the effects of these agents.
Because controllability appears to be an important negative predictor of shyness, a model of cure that implies a passive recipient is unlikely to be useful or efficacious.

Enforcement of Security Policies vs. Control of DES Although [1] concludes that security automata can be used for execution monitoring of safety properties, and gives some preliminary consideration about the realization, no investigation has been seen either in [1] or the literature regarding the detail of the implementation of such enforcement mechanisms.
Control of DES is indicating strong relation with the enforcement of security policies.
After we have the two sub-automata for the sub-policies, the set of all controllable actions and the set of all observable actions are fixed, the EM enforcement of security policies becomes exactly a control problem of decentralized DES, and the decentralized DES theories [6, 7] may apply.

 Tests for Controllability and Observability
Controllability and observability can also be inferred from the structure of certain special-type realizations, such as the Kalman controllable or observable forms (see Section 8.2).
In fact, in some cases the size of the controllable or observable subspace is computed internally when arriving at the realization of the special form.
As the size of the controllable subspace is less than the number of states, the system is not controllable.

 Controllability   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
If we can "steer" a system to a certain state by controlling its inputs, we can then ask ourselves if there is a way to find the most efficient method of making this transformation.
The controllable space can then be found by taking the image of this matrix.
However, if this inequality is not satisfied and the determinant of the controllability matrix is 0, then we know that it is not full rank.

The controllability and observability of a linear plant is one of the key areas in automatic control theory.
The structural controllability and observability of a system can be ascertained beforehand through inspection of causal paths in the bond graph model, though eventually they may be in disagreement with the obtained results at a parametric level for some specific values.
The rank of controllability matrix depends on numerical values of the parameters and hence cannot be considered as an measure of robustness of the control strategy.

 APMRN - The Myth of the Controllability of Difference - Stephen Castles
Attempts by recently established nation-states to control such movements are often hampered by time-honoured customs and cultural affinities—as well as by modern economic, social and political factors.
The state had final control of all flows across the borders, whether of capital, commodities, cultural products or people (provided, of course, that it had the capacity to enforce this control).
However, they also believe that difference is controllable: either the immigrants will be absorbed into an unchanged national community (assimilation); or they will be sent away as soon as their labour is no longer needed (differential exclusion).

 Control Engineering - Controllability and profitability   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The theory of MPC is based on solving a quadratic objective function that penalizes tracking error and manipulated variable moves subject to the dynamic model of the process, which is usually based on step tests of the process.
It is difficult to relate controllability and profitability because the economic justification of process control is multi-faceted.
Improved process control can be used to maximize yield of chips per wafer, decreased cost of ownership of equipment by minimizing cycle time, and decreased rework resulting from out-of-specification chips.

Cues were presented in which the color of the diamond indicated whether a subject could control the length of the heat.
In the controllable condition, subjects were instructed that if they moved the joystick in the direction of the arrow and their response was faster than a threshold (based on their previous response times), they would receive the short (2 sec) rather than long (5 sec) heat.
Areas shaded in green were significantly activated in both the uncontrollable and controllable conditions but were significantly more activated when the pain was perceived to be uncontrollable [(UC and C) and (UC - C)].
