CICADA workshop on hybrid systems and model reduction.

04 Feb 2009

On 19-20 March 2009.

To be held at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Computational and Dynamical Analysis (CICADA), School of Mathematics.

The goal of the workshop is to look at recent developments in the areas of dynamical systems and model reduction, and to identify tools used in each field which could be applied to the effective investigation of hybrid systems.

To this end we will look at different formalisms used to tackle hybrid systems, the role of singular perturbations in dynamical systems as a model reduction tool, and at recent developments in model reduction theory.
