AB - The controllability function method, introduced by V. I. Korobov in late 1970s, is known to be an efficient tool for control systems design. It is developed for both linear/nonlinear and finite/infinite dimensional systems. This paper bridges the method with the homogeneity theory popular today. The standard homogeneity known since 18th century is a symmetry of function with respect to uniform scaling of its argument.Some generalizations of the standard homogeneity were introduced in 20th century. This paper shows that the so-called homogeneous norm is a controllability function of the linear autonomous control system and the corresponding closed-loop system is homogeneous in the generalized sense. This immediately yields many useful properties known for homogeneous systems such as robustness (Input-to-State Stability) withrespect to a rather large class of perturbations, in particular, with respect to bounded additive measurement noises and bounded additive exogenous disturbances. The main theorem presented in this paper slightly refines the design of the controllability function for a multiply-input linear autonomous control systems. The design procedure consists in solving subsequently a linear algebraic equation and a system of linear matrix inequalities. The homogeneity itself and the use of the canonical homogeneous norm essentiallysimplify the design of a controllability function and the analysis of the closed-loop system. Theoretical results are supported with examples. The further study of homogeneity-based design of controllability functions seems to be a promising direction for future research.
