Let A0 be a possibly unbounded positive operator on the Hilbert space H, which is boundedly invertible. Let C0 be a bounded operator from to another Hilbert space U. We prove that the system of equations determines a well-posed linear system with input u and output y. The state of this system is where X is the state space. Moreover, we have the energy identity We show that the system described above is isomorphic to its dual, so that a similar energy identity holds also for the dual system and hence, the system is conservative. We derive various other properties of such systems and we give a relevant example: a wave equation on a bounded n-dimensional domain with boundary control and boundary observation on part of the boundary.
