Use of the conditioning number k(F) = ∥ F ∥ • ∥ F−1 ∥ where F is a symmetric matrix related to the controllability (observability) matrix is suggested as basis for index of controllability (observability). This index has advantages of being independent of scaling of state variables and being a continuous function of parameters of process.
