12: Modal decomposition of state-space models

  • Page ID
  • The solutions obtained in previous chapters, whether in time domain or transform domain, can be further decomposed to give a geometric understanding of the solution. The modal decomposition expresses the state equation as a linear combination of the various modes of the system and shows precisely how the initial conditions as well as the inputs impact these modes.
