Distributed Parameter Methods for Flow and Acoustic Applications

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Omni Ballroom B

This minisymposium focuses on recent developments in distributed parameter system methods for flow and acoustic applications. The speakers will address modeling, analysis, approximation and control issues in a variety of applications including nonlinear flow-induced acoustic fields and flow fields within a chemical-vapor-deposition reactor. Output regulation for both linear and nonlinear distributed parameter systems will be addressed with one talk focusing on the analysis of unbounded control and observation operators. The talks in this minisymposium will illustrate issues common to a number of important emerging applications and should be of interest to a variety of researchers investigating linear and nonlinear flow and acoustic problems.
