Specialization profile--Systems and control

Systems and Control focuses on the development of mathematical models of complex dynamic systems, as well as on the use of these models to optimize/control their behavior in feed-forward and feedback configurations. The strength of feedback control rests in its capacity for dealing with uncertainty. This makes it possible to design low-complexity controllers for achieving high performance in controlled complex systems.
