OFFER DESCRIPTION

1 PhD Contract in Dynamic Control (DyCON)

The European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant “DyCon – DynamicControl”, coordinated by Enrique Zuazua, aims to develop a multifold research agenda in the broad area of Control of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) and their numerical approximation methods to contribute with new key theoretical methods and results and computational software.

This project identifies six key topics around which it is articulated: control of parameter dependent problems; long finite time horizon control; control under constraints; inverse design of time irreversible models; memory models and hybrid PDE/ODE models, and the links between finite and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems.

Description

The chosen doctoral candidates will enrol the Mathematics PhD Program of “Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM)” and carry out mathematical and computational research on some of the main scientific priorities of DyCon, in a multidisciplinary and international academic and technological environment, with excellent facilities.
