Modeling and Control of Spatially Distributed Dynamical Systems

Modeling and control of spatially distributed systems described by partial differential equations. The emphasis will be on linear PDE systems, and how they can be viewed as infinite dimensional generalizations of standard ODE systems. The material in the course will be strongly motivated by physical examples. The emphasis will be on spatially distributed arrays of dynamical systems, and problems from hydrodynamic stability and transition to turbulence.
