NAXYS RESEARCH DAY 2019. The naXys annual meeting was held on October 24th 2019 and was very successful, thanks to the contributions of all the members of the Institute. The morning session was devoted to interactions with two famous Institutes of Complex Systems, the Complex Systems Institute of Barcelona UBICS and the Complex Systems Institute of Paris IDF. The afternoon session contained the presentations of the research conducted by the different poles, as well as the exciting 3-minutes-3-slides flash talks from 14 young researchers. Enriching scientific discussions continued during the lunch and coffee break.

UPCOMING BOOK RELEASE: The Koopman Operator in Systems and Control.

2019-11-Koopman Operator A multi-contributed volume edited by naXys member Alexandre Mauroy (with his collaborators Yoshihiko Susuki, Osaka Prefecture University, and Igor Mezic, University of California Santa Barbara) will soon be released by Springer. The volume consists in 20 chapters contributed by more than 40 authors. It provides a broad overview of state-of-the-art research in Koopman operator theory, a powerful framework that allows to describe and study complex nonlinear dynamical systems as linear systems. The book covers recent developments in dynamical systems theory, with a focus on the area of control theory (e.g. stability, state estimation, identification, model predictive control, etc.), in which the Koopman operator framework has received increasing attention in recent years.
