WORKING AND LITERATURE SEMINAR
ABSTRACT OF THE TALK
Interconnected systems are ubiquitous in many branches of science and engineering. Examples of such systems range from groups of robots, electric smart grid, and transportation systems to biological and economic systems. In this talk, a new theory called nonlinear small gain is introduced for the analysis and synthesis of interconnected systems. Connections with Lyapunov theory and traditional large-scale system theory are discussed. An application to distributed formation control design for nonholonomic mobile robots is discussed.
