Special GRASP Seminar: Michael Margaliot, Tel Aviv University, “Stability Analysis of Switched Systems using Variational Principles”

September 29, 2009 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Abstract: Switched systems – systems that can switch between several different modes of operation – are ubiquitous in the world around us. Mathematical models that incorporate switching between several subsystems have numerous applications in many disciplines of science.

The stability analysis of switched systems is attracting considerable interest from both the computer science and control engineering communities.

The talk is a self-contained overview of two methods for the stability analysis of switched systems under arbitrary switching; one based on variational principles and the second on Lie-algebraic tools.

Joint work with Daniel Liberzon (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Michael S. Branicky (Case Western Reserve University).

Michael Margaliot received the BSc (cum laude) and
MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of
Technology – in 1992 and 1995, respectively, and the PhD degree (summa cum
) from Tel
Aviv University
in 1999. He was a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Theoretical
Mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science. In 2000, he joined the
faculty of the School of Electrical Engineering-Systems, Tel Aviv University.

Dr. Margaliot’s research interests include the stability
analysis of differential inclusions and switched systems, optimal control, fuzzy
control, computation with words, and fuzzy modeling of biological phenomena. He
is co-author of New Approaches to Fuzzy Modeling and Control: Design and
