The optimal experiment for estimating the parameters of a nonlinear regression model usually depends on the value of these parameters, hence the problem of designing experiments that are robust with respect to parameter uncertainty. Sequential designpermits to adapt the experiment to the value of the parameters, and can thus be considered as a robust design procedure. By designing theexperiments sequentially, one introduces a feedback of information, and thus dynamics, into the design procedure....

Slightly below the transition temperatures, the behavior of superconducting materials is governed by the Ginzburg-Landau (GL) equation which characterizes the dynamical interaction of the density of superconducting electron pairs and the exited electromagnetic potential. In this paper, an optimal control problem of the strength of external magnetic field for one-dimensional thin film superconductors with respect to a convex criterion functional is considered. It is formulated as a nonlinear coefficient...

Optimal feedback control depending only on the system state is constructed for a control problem by the non-causal descriptor system for which optimal feedback control depending on state derivatives was considered in the paper (Meuller, 1998). To this end, a non-symmetric solution of the algebraic operator Riccati equation is used.

The receding horizon control strategy for dynamical systems posed in infinite dimensional spaces is analysed. Its stabilising property is verified provided control Lyapunov functionals are used as terminal penalty functions. For closed loop dissipative systems the terminal penalty can be chosen as quadratic functional. Applications to the Navier–Stokes equations, semilinear wave equations and reaction diffusion systems are given.

In this paper we analyze several concepts of solution to discontinuous ODEs in relation to feedbacks generated by optimal syntheses. Optimal trajectories are called Stratified Solutions in case of regular synthesis in the sense of Boltyanskii–Brunovsky. We introduce a concept of solution called Krasowskii Cone Robust that characterizes optimal trajectories for minimum time on the plane and for general problems under suitable assumptions.
