**Hurwitz Detectability**[edit]

Hurwitz detectability is a dual concept of Hurwitz stabilizability and is defined as the matrix pair , is said to be Hurwitz detectable if there exists a real matrix such that is Hurwitz stable.

**The System**[edit]

where , , , at any .

**The Data**[edit]

- The matrices are system matrices of appropriate dimensions and are known.

**The Optimization Problem**[edit]

There exist a symmetric positive definite matrix and a matrix satisfying

There exists a symmetric positive definite matrix satisfying

with being the right orthogonal complement of .

There exists a symmetric positive definite matrix such that

for some scalar

**The LMI:**[edit]

Matrix pair , is Hurwitz detectable if and only if following LMI holds

**Conclusion:**[edit]

Thus by proving the above conditions we prove that the matrix pair is Hurwitz Detectable.
