#### Abstract

In [1], E.B. Lee and L. Markus described a sufficient condition for which the domain of null-controllability of a linear autonomous system is all of R$^{n}$ . The purpose of this note is to extend the result to a certain linear nonautonomous system. Thus we consider a linear control system dx/dt = A(t)x+B(t)u in the Eculidean n-space R$^{n}$ where A(t) and B(t) are n*n and n*m matrices, respectively, which are continuous on 0.leq.t<.inf. and A(t) is a periodic matrix of period .omega.. Admissible controls are bounded measurable functions defined on some finite subintervals of [0, .inf.) having values in a certain convex set .ohm. in R$^{m}$ with the origin in its interior. And we present a sufficient condition for which the domain of null-controllability is all of R$^{n}$ .
