The proposed research plan consists of three parallel tracks.
Track 1 is concerned with state feedback control (central control) of general deterministic networks, including transient behavior and robustness to parameter variations. This track is performed by the applicant.
Track 2 is concerned with observer design and dynamic output feedback control (distributed control) of general deterministic networks. This track is performed by a PhD student under supervision of the applicant.
Track 3 is concerned with stochastic inter-arrival and service times and performed by a postdoc under supervision of the applicant, in close cooperation with the Stochastic Operations Research Group of prof. Boxma at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the TU/e and EURANDOM.
