In 1, the authors consider n-degree-of-freedom non-classically damped linear systems. They write the system representation in the modal coordinates as
for all where the vector of displacements the symmetric and non-negative matrix corresponds to the modal damping matrix, and the diagonal matrix
has the square of the undamped natural frequencies of the system, on its diagonal.
