This paper presents an analysis of representation and stability properties of dynamical systems whose signals are assumed to be square summable sequences. Systems are understood as families of trajectories with no more structure than linearity and shift-invariance. We depart from the usual input-output and operator theoretic setting and view relationships among system variables as a more general starting point for the study of dynamical systems. Parametrizations of two model classes are derived in terms of analytic functions which define kernel and image representations of dynamical systems. It is shown how state space models are derived from these representations. Uniqueness and minimality of these representations are completely characterized. Elementary properties like stability, stabilizability, well-posedness and interconnect ability of dynamical systems are introduced and characterized in this settheoretic framework.
