A completely general algebraic method for converting a set of linear differential equations that describe a multivariable system to the standard state equation model is considered. The computational procedure is developed in a straightforward manner so that the algorithm can be easily implemented on a digital computer. Several examples are presented to illustrate all phases of the method. A PL/I program has been developed by the authors for use on the IBM 360 computer.
