### effect of coupling in MIMO systems

I have a MIMO system with a 2x2 transfer matrix, for example consider: $\begin{pmatrix} \frac{2}{s+1} & \frac{1}{(s+1)(s+2)}\\ \frac{1}{(s+1)(s+2)}&\frac{2}{s+2} \end{pmatrix}$ I would ...

### In which situations should I use function f(x)=-x or f(x)=1/x in multiple-criteria decision analysis (MCDA)

Is there any difference if someone uses function f(x)=-x or f(x)=1/x to minimize a criteria in a decision process supported by multicriteria analysis? If it does, in which situations should I use one ...

### How to model projectile motion using dynamical system matrices

I'm trying to figure out how to model projectile motion which can be defined using a simple [quadratic] equation which defines projectile parabola: $$y = y_0 + v_{0y}t - \dfrac{1}{2} gt^2$$ I came ...
