The interdisciplinary application of feedback analysis and
control tools to research problems in diverse fields such as climate modeling,
fluid dynamics, and telescope control. Specific topics include:
Geo-engineering (intentional climate intervention), and modeling and dynamic analysis of feedback processes in climate systems using
tools from control engineering; More
Control development for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT),
including modeling, and active, and adaptive optics.
This application motivates research on implementable control design for
large-scale distributed dynamic systems. More details...
