Abstract:

In this report, we summarize our accomplishments in the research program presently supported by Grant AFOSR-88-0032 over the period from October 1, 1987 to September 30, 1988. The basic scope of this program is the analysis, estimation, and control of complex systems with particular emphasis on a the development of asymptotic methods and theories for nearly singular systems b the investigation of theoretical questions related to singular systems and c the analysis of complex systems subject to or characterized by sequences of discrete events. These three topics are described in the next three sections of this report. A full list of publications supported by Grant AFOSR-88-0032 is also included. The principal investigator for this effort is Professor Alan S. Willsky, and Professor George C. Verghese is co-principal investigator. Professors Willsky and Verghese were assisted by several graduate research assistants as well as additional thesis students not requiring stipend or tuition support from this grant.
