Hereditary Systems
Pages 10

In this chapter we consider processes where the evolution of the state depends upon the present and past history of the state and control.

In the formulation considered, the right-hand side of the dynamics is split into two parts. The first part contains the history of the state, and the second part contains the history of the state as well as the control. Many familiar delay problems are included in the first part of the formulation.
