New Compensators for Non-Minimum Phase Systems

Non-minimum phase systems are relevant class of dynamic systems with unstable internal dynamics. For such systems, even though the complementary external dynamics are stabilized by state-feedback control, internal states may still converge slowly or even diverge. Focusing on linear systems, trans...

Lie groups and manifolds of non-smooth mappings

We propose to construct and study Lie groups of paths of bounded variation with values in a Lie group. The driving motivation for this construction comes from the theory of rough paths. Rough path theory was invented by T. Lyons in the 90s and provides a fresh look at integration and differential...
