Network Control Systems (Fall/Winter 2016)
This course treats network control systems and educates the concept, problem formulations, solutions and background theory. Through this course, students would know several typical control problems, applications and fundamental theory of network control systems. This would help students have access to the stateoftheart in systems and control, and to produce novel research outcomes. Also, students will acquire several background theories such as graph theory, Lyapunov theory and optimization theory.
