  • Title: Converse Theorems in Lyapunov's Second Method and Constructive Methods: Part I
  • Location: V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Access Grid Venue: CARMA [ENQUIRIES]
  • Time and Date: 10:00 am, Wed, 24th Sep 2014
  • Abstract:
    More than 120 years after their introduction, Lyapunov's so-called First and Second Methods remain the most widely used tools for stability analysis of nonlinear systems. Loosely speaking, the Second Method states that if one can find an appropriate Lyapunov function then the system has some stability property. A particular strength of this approach is that one need not know solutions of the system in order to make definitive statements about stability properties. The main drawback of the Second Method is the need to find a Lyapunov function, which is frequently a difficult task.

    Converse Lyapunov Theorems answer the question: given a particular stability property, can one always (in principle) find an appropriate Lyapunov function? In the first installment of this two-part talk, we will survey the history of the field and describe several such Converse Lyapunov Theorems for both continuous and discrete-time systems. In the second instalment we will discuss constructive techniques for numerically computing Lyapunov functions.

  • CARMA RHD MEETING
  • Location: V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Dates: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, Thu, 25th Sep 2014
  • Ohab Giladi and Fabian Rigterink will present some of their work.


  • Speaker: Ohad Giladi, CARMA, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: The Ribe Program
  • Abstract:
         In 1976, Ribe showed that if two Banach spaces are uniformly homeomorphic, then their finite dimensional subspaces are similar in some sense. This suggests that properties of Banach spaces which depend only on finitely many vectors should have a purely metric characterization. We will shortly discuss the history of the Ribe program, as well as some recent developments.

  • Speaker: Fabian Rigterink , The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Global optimization of generalized pooling problems
  • Abstract:
         In particular:
    • Linear relaxations of bilinear (multilinear) terms
    • A few results on the strength of linear relaxations of bilinear (multilinear) functions
    • Univariate and bivariate (multivariate) partitioning of variables

  • CARMA COMBINATORICS SEMINAR
  • Speaker: Dr Paul Leopardi, Australian National University
  • Title: Twin bent functions and Clifford algebras
  • Location: V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan), The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 3:00 pm, Thu, 25th Sep 2014
  • Abstract:

    It is known that the function s defined on an ordering of the 4^m monomial basis matrices of the real representation of the Clifford algebra Cl(m, m), where s(A) = 0 if A is symmetric, s(A) = 1 if A is skew, is a bent function. It is perhaps less well known that the function t, where t(A) = 0 if A is diagonal or skew, t(A) = 1 otherwise, is also a bent function, with the same parameters as s. The talk will describe these functions and their relation to Hadamard difference sets and strongly regular graphs.

    The talk was originally presented at ADTHM 2014 in Lethbridge this year.
