Applications of Control Theory

Control theory involves inducing a desired behavior on a physical system. Applications arise in difficult areas, for example, in the stabilization of plates, beams and shells and in improving communications protocols for data transmission. The speakers will consider a variety of problems that can be modelled by partial differential equations, ordinary differential equations or discrete event systems. They will discuss recent theoretical developments and their applications to real-world problems.

Organizers: Mary Ann Horn, Vanderbilt University; and Suzanne Lenhart, University of Tennessee

8:30 Modeling and Estimation of the Dynamic Mechanical Behavior of Elastomers
H.T. Banks and Nancy J. Lybeck, North Carolina State University
