The goal of research in mathematical control theory is to develop a new methodology for systems that have been known to be hard to control, and to support what has been known to be true without mathematical background by providing a formal and rigorous theory. Although research on control theory has a long history, the nonlinear control theory is still actively studied because development of new tools for analyzing and synthesizing nonlinear control systems is relatively recent. Those tools have enabled to design some new nonlinear controllers in order to achieve high performance criteria for highly nonlinear systems usually arising in military, aerospace, high-precision mechanics and biology.
The laboratory performs research on various topics. Some specific topics that are or have been studied in the lab are illustrated here. Please switch to "한국어" to see the contents of these topics in Korean.
