Linear index-1 DAEs: regular and singular problems
Several features and interrelations of projector methods and reduction techniques for the analysis of linear time-varying differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) are addressed in this work. The application of both methodologies to regular index-1 problems is reviewed, leading to some new results which extend the scope of reduction techniques through a projector approach. Certain singular points are well accommodated by reduction methods; the projector framework is adapted in this paper to handle (not necessarily isolated) singularities in an index-1 context. The inherent problem can be described in terms of a scalarly implicit ODE with continuous operators, in which the leading coefficient function does not depend on the choice of projectors. The nice properties of projectors concerning smoothness assumptions are carried over to the singular setting. In analytic problems, the kind of singularity arising in the scalarly implicit inherent ODE is also proved independent of the choice of projectors. The discussion is driven by a simple example coming from electrical circuit theory. Higher index cases and index transitions are the scope of future research.
