The mathematics of robust optimal control of complex dynamical systems

What is mathematical systems theory? We live in a high-tech world which confronts us with dynamical processes such as emerging in the generation of renewable energies, the adaptive dosing of drugs or the optimal design of complex traffic systems. It is impossible to analyze and manage such complex systems without mathematics. The discipline of mathematical systems theory serves to develop the methodological and algorithmic foundations for controlling dynamical systems, in the sense of stabilizing such systems and optimize their dynamical evolution with system theoretic guarantees.
