Abstract:

This report summarizes a scientific meetingconference which was supported in part by a grant from the Army Research Office. The conference was held in Cambridge, MA on October 23, 24, 1998. The occasion marked the sixtieth birthday of Roger W. Brockett, and more than one hundred leading control theorists traveled to Boston to attend two days of lectures and a formal banquet. No formal conference record was published, but a volume of technical articles discussing current research related to Brocketts work was published. The book entitled Mathematical Control Theory is available from Springer-Verlag as indicated in the report.
