Stability, Sensitivity and Real-Time Control of Perturbed Nonlinear Control Systems

In recent years, considerable progress has been made in the stability and sensitivity analysis of perturbed control problems subject to control and state constraints. It has been recognized for a long time that stability properties of optimal solutions are crucial for developing realtime control algorithms. The speakers in this minisymposium will highlight some recent developments in stability and sensitivity analysis and make an effort to link these results to numerical algorithms. They discuss nonlinear programming methods for solving optimal control problems and design realtime control approximations of perturbed systems.
