Title: Model Reduction and Approximation for Complex Systems
Abstract: High-Technological solutions of today are characterized by complex dynamical models. These models are usually developed to understand the system, for diagnostic purposes or to be used for control design. To maintain tractability, efficient computational prototyping tools are required to replace such complex models by simpler models which capture their dominant characteristics. This need arises partly from limited computational, accuracy, or memory capabilities. Due to this fact, model reduction and approximation methods have become increasingly popular over the last two decades. The focus of this talk is on some recent developments within the area of gramian-based model reduction and approximation.
