The research topics are:
Controllability of nonlinear
systems, in particular, global controllability of right-invariant systems on Lie
groups and high-order conditions for local controllability.
Approximation with nilpotent systems,
series expansions of the input-output map.
Feedback stabilization by
discontinuous feedback with controlled singularities.
and normal forms of nonlinear systems
with respect to state and feedback transformations.
Necessary and sufficient conditions for
optimality, regularity properties of optimal trajectories and minimum time function.
Optimal synthesis, its singularities and
structural stability. Generic classifications in low dimensions.
Symplectic and topological invariants of
optimal control problems and Hamiltonian systems.
Sub-Riemannian geometry and geometry
Engineering applications of control
theory; control of mechanical systems; motion planning.
Discrete-time, hybrid, and switching
The weekly seminar on Geometric Control Theory and its Applications takes place
on Wednesdays, at 14.30
in room L.
All interested are welcome to participate.
