Basic properties on linearization by output injection are investigated in this paper. A special structure is sought which is linear up to a suitable output injection and under a suitable change of coordinates. It is shown how an observer may be designed using theory available for linear time delay systems.

Multivariable nonlinear systems with time delays are considered. The delays are supposed to be constant but not commensurate. The goal of this paper is to give a structure algorithm which displays some system invariants for this class of systems.

The reference trajectory tracking problem is considered in this paper and (constructive) sufficient conditions are given for the existence of a causal state feedback solution. The main result is introduced as a byproduct of input-output feedback linearization.

This paper highlights the role of the rank of a differential one-form in the solution of such nonlinear control problems via measurement feedback as disturbance decoupling problem of multi-input single output (MISO) systems. For the later problem, some necessary conditions and sufficient conditions are given.

In this paper differential forms and differential algebra are applied to give a new definition of realization for multivariable nonlinear systems consistent with the linear realization theory. Criteria for the existence of realization and the definition of minimal realization are presented. The relations of minimal realization and accessibility and finally the computation of realizations are also discussed in this paper.
