Network reconstruction, i.e., obtaining network structure from data, is a central theme in systems biology, economics, and engineering. Previous work introduced dynamical structure functions as a tool for posing and solving the problem of network reconstruction between measured states. While recovering the network structure between hidden states is not possible since they are not measured, in many situations it is important to estimate the number of hidden states in order to understand the complexity of the network under investigation and help identify potential targets for measurements. Estimating the number of hidden states is also crucial to obtain the simplest state-space model that captures the network structure and is coherent with the measured data. This paper characterises minimal order state-space realisations that are consistent with a given dynamical structure function by exploring properties of dynamical structure functions and developing algorithms to explicitly obtain a minimal reconstruction.

In this study, we consider an unknown discrete-time, linear time-invariant, autonomous system and characterise, the minimal number of discrete-time steps necessary to compute the asymptotic final value of a state. The results presented in this paper have a direct link with the celebrated final value theorem. We apply these results to the design of an algorithm for minimal-time distributed consensus and illustrate the results on an example. [less ▲]

Conditions in the form of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) are used in this paper to guarantee the global asymptotic stability of a limit cycle oscillation for a class of piecewise linear (PWL) systems defined as the feedback interconnection of a saturation controller with a single input, single output (SISO) linear time-invariant (LTI) system. The proposed methodology extends previous results on impact maps and surface Lyapunov functions to the case when the sets of expected switching times are arbitrarily large. The results are illustrated on a PWL version of the Goodwin oscillator. [less ▲]

This paper presents a result on the robust synchronization of outputs of statically interconnected non-identical cyclic feedback systems that are used to model, among other processes, gene expression. The result uses incremental versions of the small gain theorem and dissipativity theory to arrive at an upper bound on the norm of the synchronization error between corresponding states, giving a measure of the degree of convergence of the solutions. This error bound is shown to be a function of the difference between the parameters of the interconnected systems, and disappears in the case where the systems are identical, thus retrieving an earlier synchronization result.

Network reconstruction, i.e. obtaining network structure from input-output information, is a central theme in systems biology. A variety of approaches aim to obtaining structural information from available data. Previous work has introduced dynamical structure functions as a tool for posing and solving the network reconstruction problem. Even for linear time invariant systems, reconstruction requires specific additional information not generated in the typical system identification process. This paper demonstrates that such extra information can be obtained through a limited sequence of system identification experiments on structurally modified systems, analogous to gene silencing and overexpression experiments. In the absence of such extra information, we discuss whether combined assumptions of network sparsity and minimality contribute to the recovery of the network dynamical structure. We provide sufficient conditions for a transfer function to have a completely decoupled minimal realization, and demonstrate that every transfer function is arbitrarily close to one that admits a perfectly decoupled minimal realization. This indicates that the assumptions of sparsity and minimality alone do not lend insight into the network structure. [less ▲]
