Robust Estimation via Convex Optimization
Abstract: Model-based estimation has innumerable real-life applications ranging from spacecraft dynamics to stock market behavior. Although the fundamental theory is well established, the issue of robustness against model uncertainties has only recently been investigated in a systematic manner. In this talk, I will first try to introduce the basics of
uncertainty interconnections in dynamic systems and uncertainty descriptions using "integral quadratic constraints". Next, I will discuss my research in the solution of the robust estimation problem using convex optimization. I will conclude the talk with an application to automotive control systems and some structurally similar problems in control theory.
