The GAMM-Fachausschuss/Activity Group of the GAMM (International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics) will be held from at 25th and 26th march 2019 at the Technische Universität in Chemnitz and will be organized by our professorship. Further information can be found here.

The ACSD Lab will present two papers on the Conference on Decision and Control to be held in Miami Beach on December 17th-19th. New research results in the area of constructive analysis of control systems and hierarchical MPC will be presented.

Mr. Richard Linßen defends his master's thesis on the topic Model Predictive Path Following Control for Highly Automated Driving. The research was conducted in cooperation with IAV Automotive Engineering

Our new course Advanced Control Methods (ACM) will be held in the winter semester 2018/19. The course covers topics such as robust control and LMIs.

The professorship warmly welcomes its new team members, Franz Rußwurm and Lukas Munser.
Franz studied Mathematics at the Ilmenau University of Technology. His Master thesis was on Motion principles on the example of the nonholonomic robot. He will strengthen our team on the research topics Nonlinear and optimal control.
Lukas studied Electrical Engineering in Chemnitz. His Master thesis was on Identification and Aggregation of Dynamic Behavior based on Kernel Methods. He will strengthen our team on the research topics Learning-based methods for nonlinear control.

An article on constructive control theory appeared at phys.org and EurekAlert!.org. Among general things like logical background for control, the article discusses the professorship's recent publication on the constructive analysis of Caratheodory's theorem on existence of system trajectories of discontinuous dynamical systems.

The ACSD Lab will present a collaborative paper on the 10th IFAC Symposium on Fault Detection, Supervision and Safety for Technical Processes, SAFEPROCESS, to be held in Warsaw, Poland on August 29th-31st. New research results in the area of hierarchical fault tolerant control will be presented by Assoc. Prof. Florin Stoican from the Polytechnical University Bucharest.

Mr. Lukas Munser defends his master thesis on the topic Identification and Aggregation of Dynamic Behavior based on Kernel Methods.

Mr. Henrik Rudolf defends his master thesis on the topic Identification of the Thermal Behavior of Components in a Cathode Path of a PEM Fuel Cell using a LPV Model. This thesis was done in cooperation with the professorship Advanced Powertrains at the TUC.
