Adaptive Tracking and Parameter Identification

Applied and Computational Mathematics Seminar
Monday, May 11, 2020 - 1:55pm for 1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
Prof. Michael Malisoff – Louisiana State University – malisoff@lsu.edu
Molei Tao and Haomin Zhou

Please Note: Virtual seminar held on BlueJeans

Adaptive control problems arise in many engineering applications in which one needs to design feedback controllers that ensure tracking of desired reference trajectories while at the same time identify unknown parameters such as control gains. This talk will summarize the speaker's work on adaptive tracking and parameter identification, including an application to curve tracking problems in robotics. The talk will be understandable to those familiar with the basic theory of ordinary differential equations. No prerequisite background in systems and control will be needed to understand and appreciate this talk.
