Description

Leader of the group Stochastics: Bert Zwart.

 

Many natural and man-made systems and processes are driven by random phenomena. Examples can be found in areas such as communication, energy, information, logistics, and transportation systems. In order to model, describe, and improve such systems, our group develops and studies probabilistic, operational and statistical models. Our group’s analysis of these models relies on techniques from fundamental probability theory, queueing theory, stochastic scheduling, spatial stochastics and stochastic geometry. Our work with various companies in these areas, as well as with top researchers and universities across the globe, ensures our position at the forefront of every aspect of this research field.

CWI

This workshop is devoted to the application of polynomial optimization methods in the analysis and control of dynamical systems and energy networks. The polynomial optimization approach offers a powerful framework to model hard nonconvex, nonlinear control problems as infinite dimensional linear optimization problems over measure spaces. The rich interplay between functional analysis and operator theory, and real algebraic geometry, underlies the nowadays well-known moment/sum-of-squares hierarchy of relaxations, that allows to efficiently obtain converging sequences of bounds. This approach has also been recently developed to attack large optimal power flow problems in large electrical networks. The program (under construction) will feature lectures by experts in the field and ample time will be left for discussions.

This workshop is co-organized by Monique Laurent and Bert Zwart.
