In this paper we demonstrate that the minimal state space realization problem in the max algebra can be transformed into an Extended Linear Complementarity Problem (ELCP). We use an algorithm that finds all solutions of an ELCP to find all equivalent minimal state space realizations of a single input single output (SISO) discrete event system. We also give a geometrical description of the set of all minimal realizations of a SISO maxlinear discrete event system.

First we determine necessary and for some cases also sufficient conditions for a polynomial to be the characteristic polynomial of a matrix with elements in Rmax. Then we indicate how to construct a matrix such that its characteristic polynomial is equal to a given monic polynomial in Smax , the extension of Rmax . Next we use these results to develop a procedure to nd the minimal state space realization of a single input single output (SISO) discrete event system, given its Markov parameters.

Similarity transformations between two different minimal realizations of a given impulse response of a Discrete Event System are discussed. In the symmetrized maxalgebra an explicit expression can be given for the transformation between an arbitrary minimal realization of a given impulse response and a minimal realization of the same impulse response in a standard form. It is conjectured that a more general result holds which gives a transformation matrix between any two minimal realizations of an impulse response. We will illustrate the difficulties encountered when trying to prove this conjecture.
