Abstract : In a previous paper by the author and J. Yorke, necessary and sufficient conditions were given for local controllability of linear autonomous systems using only bounded positive controls. The present paper extends those results to obtain conditions for global controllability with both bounded and unbounded positive controls. (Author)
