Modeling and Control of Hybrid Systems
January 16, 23, 30 & February 6, 2017
Hybrid systems
Recent technological innovations have caused a considerable interest
in the study of dynamical processes of a mixed continuous and discrete
nature. Such processes are called hybrid systems and are characterized
by the interaction of timecontinuous models (governed by differential
or difference equations) on the one hand, and logic rules and
discreteevent systems (described by, e.g., automata, finite state
machines, etc.) on the other. In practice a hybrid system arises,
e.g., when continuous physical processes are controlled via embedded
software that intrinsically has a finite number of states only (such
as on/off control).
Objectives of the course
This course will offer a brief overview of the field of hybrid
systems ranging from modeling, over analysis and simulation, to
verification and control.
We will particularly focus on modeling, analysis,
and control of tractable classes of hybrid systems.

Evaluation
Your final grade for this DISC course consists in the average
of your grades for the homeworks.
You can obtain a bonus point if you detect a sufficient amount
of errors in the lecture notes and report them to the lecturers.
The final grades will be communicated by the end of April 2017.
