Contents

  • Basics of linear systems and control theory.
  • Model reduction methods for linear and nonlinear systems:
    • modal truncation (eigenvalue-based methods),
    • balanced truncation (SVD-based methods),
    • Padé approximation / rational interpolation (Krylov subspace based methods),
    • proper orthogonal decomposition (POD),
    • dimension reduction via central/inertial manifolds (slow/fast decomposition).
  • Applications of model reduction in computational science and engineering.
  • Model reduction for parametric systems.

Certificate for successful participation

Criteria for getting a certificate for successful participation:

  • Reasonable execution of at least 50% of the homework exercises.
