std::unique_ptr< AffineSystem< double > > FirstOrderTaylorApproximation  (  const System< double > &  system,

) 
A firstorder Taylor series approximation to a system
in the neighborhood of an arbitrary point.
When Taylorexpanding a system at a nonequilibrium point, it may be represented either of the form:
\[ \dot{x}  \dot{x0} = A (x  x0) + B (u  u0), \]
for continuous time, or
\[ x[n+1]  x0[n+1] = A (x[n]  x0[n]) + B (u[n]  u0[n]), \]
for discrete time. As above, we denote x0, u0 to be the nominal state and input at the provided context
. The system description is affine when the terms \( \dot{x0}  A x0  B u0 \) and \( x0[n+1]  A x0[n]  B u0[n] \) are nonzero.
More precisely, let x be a state and u be an input. This function returns an AffineSystem of the form:
\[ \dot{x} = A x + B u + f0, \]
(CT)
\[ x[n+1] = A x[n] + B u[n] + f0, \]
(DT) where \( f0 = \dot{x0}  A x0  B u0 \) (CT) and \( f0 = x0[n+1]  A x[n]  B u[n] \) (DT).
system  The system or subsystem to linearize. 
context  Defines the nominal operating point about which the system should be linearized. 
Note that x, u and y are in the same coordinate system as the original system
, since the terms involving x0, u0 reside in f0.
std::unique_ptr< LinearSystem< double > > Linearize  (  const System< double > &  system, 
const Context< double > &  context,  
double  equilibrium_check_tolerance = 1e6 

) 
Takes the firstorder Taylor expansion of a System around a nominal operating point (defined by the Context).
system  The system or subsystem to linearize. 
context  Defines the nominal operating point about which the system should be linearized. See note below. 
equilibrium_check_tolerance  Specifies the tolerance on ensuring that the derivative vector isZero at the nominal operating point. Default: 1e6. 
std::runtime_error  if the system the operating point is not an equilibrium point of the system (within the specified tolerance) 
Note: The inputs in the Context must be connected, either to the output of some upstream System within a Diagram (e.g., if system is a reference to a subsystem in a Diagram), or to a constant value using, e.g. context>FixInputPort(0,default_input);
Note: The inputs, states, and outputs of the returned system are NOT the same as the original system. Denote x0,u0 as the nominal state and input defined by the Context, and y0 as the value of the output at (x0,u0), then the created systems inputs are (uu0), states are (xx0), and outputs are (yy0).
