I will present new methods for designing feedback controllers for infinite-dimensional systems controlled from the boundary. Such problems arise in
turbulent flow control, chemical process control, fusion, nanotechnology applications such as control of cantilever beams in atomic force microscopes,
etc. Due to the inherent high dimensionality and unbounded input and output operators, control methods that mimic standard finite-dimensional
techniques and require the solution of operator Riccati equations are hard to apply to these problems. I will present a set of novel controller and
observer design techniques inspired by geometric nonlinear control tools and "backstepping," which employ only symbolic computation.
Miroslav Krstic is the Sorenson Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Egineering at UCSD. He started his career in 1995 at University of Maryland and
moved to UCSD in 1997. He obtained his PhD at UC Santa Barbara in 1994. Krstic is a coauthor of the books Nonlinear and Adaptive Control Design
(1995), Stabilization of Nonlinear Uncertain Systems (1998), Flow Control by Feedback (2002), and Real Time Optimization by Extremum Seeking Control
(2003). He received the NSF Career, ONR YI, and PECASE Awards, as well as the Axelby and the Schuck paper prizes. In 2005 he was the first engineering
professor to receive the UCSD Award for Excellence in Research. Krstic is a Fellow of IEEE and a Distinguished Lecturer of the Control Systems
Society. He has served as associate editor for several journals and is currently Editor for Adaptive and Distributed Parameter Systems in Automatica.
He has served as Vice President for Technical Activities of the Control Systems Society.
