Control and Dynamical Systems: Invited Lecture Series

There has been a steady growth in the interactions between control theory and various branches of the physical and biological sciences. These interactions have been significantly influenced by the increasing role of the dynamical systems perspective in these sciences. This series of talks is designed to highlight some of the exciting developments now taking place at the forefront of research in Control and Dynamical Systems and to draw attention to some of the emerging interdisciplinary connections. This series includes contributions by engineers, mathematicians, physicists, materials scientists and neuroscientists, exploring work ranging from algorithms for GPS, to manufacturing techniques for micro-sensors, to problems in auditory localization of interest in bio-mimetic robotics, to the design of smart actuators and sensors for control systems, based on advances in materials science, to the creation of learning algorithms for adaptive systems.

This series has been supported in part by the Army Research Office under the ODDR&E MURI97 Program Grant No. DAAG55-97-1-0114 to the Center for Dynamics and Control of Smart Structures (through Harvard University), and the ODDR&E MURI01 Program Grant No. DAAD19-01-1-0465 to the Center for Communicating Networked Control Systems (through Boston University), and by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research under AFOSR Grant No. F49620-01-0415.
