### Abstract:

In this paper we revisit the explicit MPC representation and related notions. We point to the special structure of the constraint matrices and exploit it in order to provide novel results. We give an upper bound for the collection of admissible active sets with use in the mixed integer representation of the KKT problem and a partial recursive description of the explicit partitioning of the MPC problem. The results are tested over illustrative examples.
