16:00  VISITING SPEAKER  Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : Penalizing control volatility in nonlinear optimal control

More Information

Abstract:
Change is necessary in any dynamic environment, but there is always a cost incurred when implementing change; one of the most obvious is wear and tear on the physical components in a system. In the optimal control field, the cost of change is almost always ignored, and this can lead to “op (...)
