CPSRC Seminar: Observability of Dynamical Systems and Optimal Sensor Placement

Wei Kang

Abstract In this talk, I will introduce a quantitative measure of partial observability for dynamical systems. For problems with very high dimensions and big data sets, the concept and theory of partial observability are developed using a computational approach. The theory and numerical methods... Read More
