Title: Long-time behaviour of dissipative systems

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Andrei Agrachev

Abstract. Energy dissipation is always a “smoothing” and “stabilising” factor for the dynamics. In the case of a mechanical system with isotropic friction, the influence of the dissipation on the dynamics is controlled by an easily computable curvature tensor of the system. If the dissipation is strong enough then the curvature is negative and the system of second order differential equations is eventually reduced to the system of first order ones with a prescribed limiting velocity profile. I am going to explain this phenomenon that certainly has a more general nature, beyond the studied framework. If time permits, I’ll also discuss the transition to a weak dissipation and suggest a way to define a limiting velocity distribution in this case.

Randomized time-splitting in linear-quadratic optimal control By Daniël Veldman   Introduction Solving an optimal control problem for a large-scale dynamical system can be computationally demanding. This problem appears in numerous applications. One example is Model Predictive Control (MPC), which requires the solution of several optimal control […]
