We study the Lp induced gain of discretetime linear switching systems with graph-constrained switching sequences. We first prove that, for stable systems in a minimal realization, for every p 1, the Lp-gain is exactly characterized through switching storage functions. These functions are shown to be the pth power of a norm. In order to consider general systems, we provide an algorithm for computing minimal realizations. These realizations are rectangular systems, with a state dimension that varies according to the mode of the system. We apply our tools to the study on the of L2-gain. We provide algorithms for its approximation, and provide a converse result for the existence of quadratic switching storage functions. We finally illustrate the results with a physically motivated example.
