SUMMARY:Talk of Prof. Bahman Gharesifard
DESCRIPTION:Prof. Bahman Gharesifard \nControl Group, Department of Mathematics and Statistics\nQueen´s University,\nOntario, Canada \nTuesday 2019-10-22 16:00\nIST-Seminar-Room V9.2.255 - Pfaffenwaldring 9 - Campus Stuttgart-Vaihingen \nAbstract\nI present some results related to stabilization and structural controllability of sparse\nbilinear control systems, where by “sparse” it is meant that the underlying matrices are restricted\nto belong to a vector subpage given by a zero pattern. The main objective of the talk,\nnevertheless, is to familiarize the students with some classical results on bilinear control\nsystems.\n \nBiographical Information\nBahman Gharesifard is an Associate Professor with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics\nat Queen's University. He held postdoctoral positions with the Department of Mechanical and\nAerospace Engineering at University of California, San Diego 2009-2012 and with the Coordinated\nScience Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 2012-2013. He held a\nvisiting faculty position at the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control at the\nUniversity of Stuttgart in summer of 2016, and is a Humboldt research fellow at the same institute\nin 2019-2020. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Queen's University in 2009. He received the\n2019 CAIMS-PIMS Early Career Award, jointly awarded by the Canadian Applied and Industrial Math\nSociety and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, a Humboldt research fellowship for\nexperienced researchers from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2019, and an NSERC Discovery\nAccelerator Supplement in 2019. He was a finalist, as an advisor, for the Best Student Paper Award\nat the American Control Conference in 2017. He received the Engineering and Applied Science First\nYear Instructor Teaching Award in 2015 and 2017, and was shortlisted for a Frank Knox Award for\nExcellence in Teaching in 2014. He serves on the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control\nSystems Society, and as an Associate editor for the IEEE Control System Letters. His research\ninterests include systems and controls, distributed control, distributed optimization and learning,\ngeometric control theory, social and economic networks, game theory, geometric mechanics, and\napplied Riemannian geometry.
