Seminar: Control of Network Dynamics - Winter Term 2013/2014

The seminar is generously supported by the G-RISC program in cooperation with the working group Fradkov (Saint-Petersburg State University, Russia).

Seminar (3233 L 606) : Control of Network Dynamics
Winter term 2013/14

Room: EW 731 (PN 731)

Time: Tuesdays 16:00 (s.t.)

Attendance of the this seminar corresponds to 3 ECTS points, which can be topped up to 5 ECTS ponits by a talk and written report.

The seminar offers perspectives on current research of the working group Schöll and the junior research group Hövel in the area Nolinear Dynamics and Control. The seminar is particularly suitable for BSc and MSc students looking for a final project. Students, who want to obtain a "Seminarschein", are welcome as well.

Investigating nonlinear dynamics on and of networks is a field of intense research efforts and has manifold applications to, for instance, coupled lasers or complex neural networks. Another exciting area of research is the control of nonlinear dynamics, in particular the stabilization of unstable states. The combination of both fields is the topic of this seminar. Therefore, the seminar will start with the basic foundation of network science and different control methods. Then, various examples of current research projects will be discussed.
