Infinite-dimensional Systems


Research interests

Many technological processes in industrial applications can only be modelled accurately by considering their time and spatial dependent dynamical behaviour. This leads to a system description in form of partial differential equations. The main research topics of the "Infinite-dimensional Systems Group" are the derivation of new modeling, analysis and control methods for infinite-dimensional systems as well as the application of state-of-the art techniques for infinite-dimensional systems in cooperations with the industry.
