Notons pour terminer qu’un concept mathématique puissant pour aborder les notions de croissance transitoire et d’excitation optimale est celui d’opérateur adjoint. y, l’opérateur adjoint At associé à un opérateur A est défini par la relation (X’ AtY) = (Ax, Y) pour tout couple ( x , y ) . Pour un opérateur A matriciel, l’adjoint At correspond à la matrice transposée conjuguée, At = At*,et lorsque la matrice A et ses valeurs propres sont réelles, ce qui est le cas ici, les valeurs propres de At sont identiques à celles de A.
