The objective is to present the latest developments, insights, methods and ideas in the field of Model Order Reduction (MOR), a booming area of research, and indications for future research directions.
The school is aimed at international PhD and advanced undergraduate students from mathematics, systems and control, and engineering sciences, as well as researchers from academia and industry who wish to obtain a thorough understanding of the latest developments in the subject, and a sound basis for further development of their knowledge.
A second objective is to initiate active working groups in Europe that will work on various topics such as MOR and optimization, robust-parameterized MOR (for large parameter variations in Design for Manufacturing), multi-parameter-MOR, structure-preserving MOR, MOR for coupled problems, balanced truncation, passivity, and MOR for nonlinear problems. This can be combined with work on challenging industrial problems from the electronics industry, automotive industry, pharmaceutical industry, financial sector, and others.
The Autumn School is inspired by research done within the European RTN-project COMSON.
