Work­ing field:

Research within the Col­lab­or­at­ive Research Cen­ter 910 "Con­trol of self-organ­iz­ing non­lin­ear sys­tems: the­or­et­ical meth­ods and applic­a­tion con­cepts" in sub­pro­ject 02 "Ana­lysis of port-Hamilto­nian (pH) dif­fer­en­tial-algeb­raic equa­tions with time delay (delay-dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions DDAEs, Ana­lysis and com­pu­ta­tion of sta­bil­ity expo­nents for port-Hamilito­nian delay dif­fer­en­tial-algeb­raic equa­tions)"; invest­ig­a­tion of the optimal con­trol of pH DDAEs and the place and time dis­cret­iz­a­tion of oper­ator for­mu­la­tions obtained by vari­ation approaches and the devel­op­ment of effi­cient numer­ical sim­u­la­tion meth­ods and model reduc­tion for pH DDAEs. The exten­sion to par­tial dif­fer­en­tial-algeb­raic equa­tions with time delay is also planned. PhD thesis pre­par­a­tion is pos­sible.
