Stochastic Hybrid Systems: computable analysis and control synthesis via formal verification
This talk looks at topics in analysis and synthesis over stochastic hybrid systems, a class of probabilistic models with heterogeneous (continuous and discrete) dynamics. The talk puts forward approaches to investigate these problems based on known concepts from the formal verification literature, and discusses in detail a few results and research directions.
Speaker bioAlessandro Abate received a Laurea in Electrical Engineering in October 2002 from the University of Padova (Italy), an MS in May 2004 and a PhD in December 2007, both in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, at UC Berkeley. He has been an International Fellow in the CS Lab at SRI International in Menlo Park (CA), and a PostDoctoral Researcher at Stanford University, in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Since June 2009, he has been an Assistant Professor at the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC), TU Delft - Delft University of Technology.
His research interests are in the analysis, verification, and control of probabilistic and hybrid systems, and in their general application over a number of domains, particularly in systems biology.
