VOL. 36 | 1999 Properties of finite rank operators that arise in approximation of integral operators related to linear dynamical systems
José A. De Doná, Graham C. Goodwin, Richard H. Middleton

Editor(s) John Giles, Brett Ninness


In this paper we present an integral operator that arises in the context of linear dynamical systems, which describes the time evolution of the state probability density function. We propose a finite rank approximation to this integral operator and show that this finite rank operator converges in norm to the integral operator. We discuss Markov chains arising from this finite rank approximation, and show that the eigenvalues of the transition matrices of these Markov chains converge to the eigenvalues of the integral operator as the number of divisions in the statediscretization is increased.
