INFORMATION BASED CONTROL AND CONTROL COMMUNICATION COMPLEXITY

October 25, 2016 @ 11:00 pm - October 26, 2016 @ 12:00 am

Co-sponsored by: Villanova Center for Analytics of Dynamic Systems

The interaction of information and control has been a topic of interest to system theorists that can be traced back to the 1950’s when the fields of communications, control, and information theory were new but developing rapidly.  Recent advances in our understanding of this interplay have emerged from work on the dynamical effect of state quantization and a corresponding understanding of how communication channel data rates affect system stability.  While a large body of research has now emerged dealing with communication constrained feedback channels and optimal design of information flows in networks, less attention has been paid to ways in which control systems should be designed in order to optimally mediate computation and communication.  Such optimization problems are of interest in the context of quantum computing, and similar problems have recently been discussed in connection with protocols for assembly of molecular components in synthetic biology.
