  • Brian Anderson

    Central banks and funds investment managers work with mathematical models. In recent years, a new class of model has come into prominence—generalized dynamic factor models. These are characterized by having a modest number of inputs, corresponding to key economic variables and industry-sector-wide variables for central banks and funds managers...

  • Joao Hespanha

    Hybrid systems combine continuous-time dynamics with discrete modes of operation. The states of such system usually have two distinct components: one that evolves continuously, typically according to a differential equation; and another one that only changes through instantaneous jumps.

    We present a model for Stochastic Hybrid Systems (...

    IEEE 2010 CDC Semi-Plenary Lecture
  • Manfred Morari

    Twenty years ago I delivered a plenary lecture with the same title at the ACC in Boston. I will go back and reflect on the successes and failures, on what we have learned and which problems remain open. The focus will be on robust and constrained control and the real time implementation of control algorithms. I will comment on the progress we...

    IEEE 2010 CDC Bode Lecture
  • Marco C. Campi

    Designs in systems and control are traditionally carried out through deterministic algorithms consisting of a sequence of steps set by deterministic rules. This approach, however, can be generalized by the introduction of randomization: a randomized algorithm is an algorithm where one or more steps are based on a random rule, that is – among...

  • Maria Elena Valcher

    Switched systems with positivity constraints arise in various areas. They have been fruitfully employed to model consensus problems, biological systems dynamics and, recently, viral mutation dynamics underdrug treatment.

    The theory of "positive switched systems" is rather challenging and offers quite a number of interesting open problems...

2009 ACC

  • Asu Ozdaglar

    Most individuals form their opinions about the quality of products, social trends and political issues via their interactions in social and economic networks. While the role of social networks as a conduit for information is as old as humanity, recent social and technological developments, such as Facebook, Blogs and Tweeter, have added further...

    Plenary lecture, 2009 American Control Conference, St. Louis, U.S.A., June 2009
  • George Verghese

    A gray-box model is one that has a known structure (generally constrained to a strict subset of the class of models it is drawn from) but has unknown parameters. Such models typically embody or reflect the underlying physical or mechanistic understanding we have about the system, as well as structural features such as the delineation of...

    Plenary lecture, 2009 American Control Conference, St. Louis, U.S.A., June 2009
  • Panos J. Antsaklis

    Networked embedded sensing and control systems are increasingly becoming ubiquitous in applications from manufacturing, chemical processes and autonomous robotic space, air and ground vehicles, to medicine and biology. They offer significant advantages, but present serious challenges to information processing, communication and decision-making...

2009 MSC

  • Francesco Bullo

    Motion coordination is an extraordinary phenomenon in biological systems and a powerful tool in man-made systems; although individual agents have no global system knowledge, complex behaviors emerge from local interactions. This talk focuses on robotic networks, that is, group of robots that communicate and coordinate their motions to perform...
