The Dept. of Automatic Control is happy to host a seminar by Professor Rodolphe Sepulchre.

When: Tuesday March 7, 10.30-11.30,
Where: Seminar Room KC 3N27 at Dept. of Automatic Control, LTH
Speaker: Rodolphe Sepulchre
Title: Feedback system analysis: back to the future

Abstract: Back in 1960, George Zames proposed to ground the theory of feedback systems in incremental input-output analysis. Sixty years later, the theory of nonlinear control is primarily grounded in non-incremental state-space analysis. The talk will examine some consequences of that evolution and describe ongoing efforts to revive Zames proposal in the algorithmic age of control. This is joint work with Tom Chaffey,  Fulvio Forni, and Henk Van Waarde.

Bio: Rodolphe Sepulchre is Professor at KU Leuven as well as University of Cambridge. His research interests are in nonlinear dynamics, control and optimization. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Control Systems, and has been Editor-in-Chief of Systems and Control Letters, as well as Associate Editor for SIAM Journal of Control and Optimization, the Journal of Nonlinear Science, and  Mathematics for Control, Signals, and Systems. In 2008, he was awarded the IEEE Control Systems Society Antonio Ruberti Young Researcher Prize. He is an IEEE fellow and an IEEE CSS distinguished lecturer since 2010.
