and Control: Theory and Applications
The papers collected here describe our work on various aspects
of systems and control. Several of the papers address attitude
estimation and control, where we explicitly take into account
the geometry of the rotation group and characteristics of
GPS measurements. The paper by Han and Park (2001) shows
how to to formulate least squares tracking on the Euclidean
group in a coordinate-invariant way. The paper by Mishra
et al describes work performed by his group at the Courant
Institute (which I visited during 2001-2002) on hybrid systems
for the mathematical modeling and simulation of biochemical
