Abstract:

We study controllability of right-invariant control systems $\Gamma = A + R \ B$ on Lie groups. Necessary and sucient controllability conditions for Lie groups not coinciding with their derived subgroup are obtained in terms of the root decomposition corresponding to the adjoint operator $ad\ B$. As an application, right-invariant systems on metabelian groups and matrix groups, and bilinear systems are considered.
