Scuola di dottorato SIDRA 2016
|Coordinator and speakers:||Franco Blanchini (University of Udine)|
|Patrizio Colaneri (Polytechnic Univ. of Milan)|
The primary objective of the course is to provide an updated view on the heritage and development of Lyapunov theory for stability, performance improvement and control of linear dynamical systems (in continuous-time) with uncertainties parameters and constraints on the state and/or input variables. Being the topic quite broad, the attention is limited to particular input and state constraints – for instance saturations, control energy and output shaping constraints – and particular parameters uncertainties, like norm-bounded uncertainties, polytopic uncertainties and uncertainties modelled via Markov chains.
Teaching aids and instructional materials
According to the spirit of the latest editions, the teaching style of the lectures will be a traditional one, making use as much as possible of the blackboard for derivations, complemented as appropriate by videos, simulations, and diagrams. The speakers will provide a collection of handouts as material supporting the lectures. This material will be available at least one week before the start of the School.
The PhD School will be taught in English.
