J.J.P. Veerman (Portland State University): Transients in Traffic Like Systems

Wed, 10/22/2014

Another lecture given by the visiting professor J.J.P. Veerman. This lecture will also focus on some aspects of distributed control of distributed systems. The lecture will be given at K14 seminar room of the Department of Control Engineering FEE CTU in Prague, Karlovo namesti 13/E and will start at 3pm. The expected duration is 60 to 90 minutes. Everybody is welcome.

Abstract: We explain the assumptions needed to find asymptotic (as the number of agents tends to infinity) solutions for the transients of certain systems of oscillators used in the study of traffic. We will also review various notions of stability: asymptotic stability, harmonic stability, impulse stability, and flock stability. If time permits, we will give examples.
