Assignments of system zeros using a new numerically stable algorithm.

This paper presents a numerically stable algorithm for assigning a prescribed set of zeros to a linear system described by a state-space model {A,B,C,D}. The method is based on the generalized Schur form of the system matrix, and implicitly shifted QR algorithm. The approach imposes no restrictions on the state-space model, and does not require computation of the zeros of the original system. Numerical properties of the algorithm are discussed and examples are given to illustrate its performance.
