Keywords Control of nonlinear systems


In the last twenty years, the problem of classifying control systems allowing state and feedback transformations has been extensively studied. This paper approaches the classification of bilinear control systems from a topological point of view, as is common in the theory of dynamical systems. As afirst step towards a topological classification, we study conjugacy and equivalence for the flows associated with bilinear control systems. This allows us to characterize the controllability and (exponential) stability behavior of bilinear systems, using Morse decompositions on the projective bundle and the associated Morse spectrum.
