An overview is given of the locally positive stabilization problem for positive infinite-dimensional linear systems with a bounded control operator. The impossibility of solving this problem by using a nonnegative input is established. Two methods for solving the problem by means of state feedback, namely spectral decomposition and control invariance, are described. The results are illustrated by means of a perturbed diffusion equation with Dirichlet boundary conditions and a diffusion equation with Neumann boundary conditions and pointwise control.
