A general description of linear, switched-parameter systems is developed in terms of the mathematics of state variables. The restrictions imposed by the grouping of state variables and by' the "core" states of the system upon the coefficient matrices are considered. Two procedures for determining the element values of those matrices are each illustrated with an example. A general expression for a Cost function to be used to measure system quality is developed and illustrated with two examples. Extensive recommendations for future work are made. Several examples of the utility of a cost function minimization technique for the improvement of the step responses of some switched parameter systems are presented.
