A panorama of tracking a submarine
Campus Nord UPC, edifici C3, 204a (biblioteca de Matemàtica); 12 h
Abstract:   In this talk, we introduce the problem of tracking trajectories in a control system and the applications to avoid obstacles.   We focus on the tracking problem for a submarine from a differential geometric viewpoint so as to obtain intrinsic solutions to the problem under study.   In order to revisit the results in the literature, notions of averaging methods and oscillatory controls are necessary.   Finally, we give insights into how to generalize the previous results in such a way that weaker assumptions and more general submarines can be considered.
