Advancement: A Deep Learning Framework for Optimal Feedback Control of High-Dimensional Nonlinear Systems

Tenavi Nakamura-Zimmerer
PhD Candidate (Advisor: Qi Gong)

Abstract: Computing optimal feedback controls for nonlinear dynamical systems generally requires numerically solving Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equations. This is notoriously difficult when the state dimension is large. Existing strategies for high-dimensional problems generally rely on... Read More

AM Seminar: Wasserstein Gradient Flow for Stochastic Prediction, Filtering and Control: Theory and Algorithms

Abhishek Halder

Abstract This talk will outline a recent and fast-moving development in systems-control theory, where new geometric interpretations for the stochastic prediction, filtering and optimal control problems are emerging. At the heart of this development, lies the Wasserstein metric and the... Read More
