Course detail

Polynomial Theory of Control

FSI-VTR-KCompulsoryMaster's (2nd cycle)Acad. year: 2016/2017Summer semester2. year of study4  credits

The students will be provided with the principles of the algebraic theory of discrete linear control. The basic algebraic concepts and methods used in the theory will be discussed. The main interest will be focused on the study of polynomials, because they are the
most important tools of the theory of discrete linear control. First, the fundamentals of the theory of rings and the theory of formal series will be expounded. This will be followed by the study of polynomials (as special cases of formal series) and polynomial matrices from the view-point of the theory of discrete linear control. This will be done with the help of the fundamental knowledge of the theory of rings.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be made familiar with solving mathematical problems that occur in the theory of discrete linear control. Basic problems of this kind concern the synthesis of optimal control, which is reduced to searching for solutions of linear polynomial equations (as the transmission of a system can be expressed by using polynomials).
