GeoMeG: Description

The general goal of the project is to study Lie groups equipped with arbitrary distance functions and to develop an adapted geometric measure theory in the non-Riemannian settings.

The main focus is subRiemannian geometry, together with implications to control systems and nilpotent groups. SubRiemannian spaces, and especially Carnot groups, appear in various areas of mathematics, such as control theory, harmonic and complex analysis, subelliptic PDE's and geometric group theory.

The members of the team master methods coming from geometric measure theory, geometric analysis, and group theory; in particular, analysis on metric spaces and Lie group theory.

 22/January/2018 Robust control of linear partial differential equations
       (MaD 380)
Lassi Paunonen (Tampere University of Technology)  

In this presentation we discuss recent develoments and open problems in the theory of robust output tracking and disturbance rejection for linear infinite-dimensional systems. The presented theory can in particular be used in designing robust error feedback controllers for linear partial differential equations. The controllers solving the robust output tracking problem are characterized by the fundamental "Internal Model Principle" first presented for finite-dimensional systems in the 1970's. As our main results we present a generalization of the Internal Model Principle for infinite-dimensional linear systems. Finally, we discuss different internal model based controller structures for selected classes of linear partial differential equations.
