Delay systems belong to a larger family of dynamical systems that incorporate ODEs and first-order hyperbolic PDEs. Such differential equation ingredients (ordinary and partial) give rise to numerous possible system structures. Various novel applications in 3D printing, oil drilling, oil production, and other technologies incorporate hyperbolic PDEs and delays, as I will illustrate in the seminar, along with presenting globally stabilizing Lyapunov feedback designs for such systems.
