We solve stabilization problems for linear time-varying systems under input delays. We show how changes of coordinates lead to systems with time invariant drifts, which are covered by the reduction model method and which lead to the problem of stabilizing a time-varying system without delay. For continuous time periodic systems, we can use Floquet theory to find the changes of coordinates. We also prove an analogue for discrete time systems, through a discrete time extension of Floquet theory.
