Abstract: Interval analysis is more and more used to solve nonlinear problems such as (i) computing all global minimisers of a nonconvex criterion, (ii) computing all solutions of a set of nonlinear equations, or (iii) characterizing sets defined by nonlinear inequalities, ...

Unlike classical numerical approaches (Monte Carlo or local methods, for instance), the results provided by interval analysis are obtained in a guaranteed way and in a finite time, even when strong nonlinearities and discontinuities are involved in the problem.

The purpose of this seminar is to introduce in a pedagogical way the principles of interval methods and constraint propagation techniques. Then, it will be show how control problems can be cast into a set membership framework for which interval methods could be efficient.

Some applications to (i) linear robust control, (ii) nonlinear control and (iii) path planning will be given.

IAMOOC - Interval Analysis MOOC

This year, from November 13 to December 18, Luc Jaulin and Jordan Ninin organize a free MOOC, named IAMOOC, on interval analysis with application to parameter estimation, robot localization.

IAMOOC could be followed by any student or researcher with basic notions on mathematics, on computer programming and robotics. 
For all exercises, Python3 will be used. All lessons and all discussions will take place through Internet in English.
 
You will find all details on IAMOOC at 
 
 
We hope that you will enjoy IAMOOC.
