Semidefinite Programming and the Design of Passive Linear Dynamical Systems


Speaker: Prof. Roland Freund, UC Davis
Location: 140 Physics/Geol
Start time: Thu, Oct 20 2005, 12:10PM

We give a brief overview of linear semidefinite programming and discuss some recent extensions to nonlinear semidefinite problems. We then describe applications of linear and nonlinear semidefinite programming in the design of passive time-invariant linear dynamical systems.
