Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics Department Seminar

The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics will host its monthly department seminar this Friday, April 19, at 3 p.m. in Fitzelle Hall, room 205. Dr. Laura Munteanu will present a talk entitled “Geometric Perspectives to Control Theory”.

Abstract: Control systems can be viewed as ordinary differential equations or dynamical systems involving a parameter. This parameter, called control, can be varied as to induce diverse trajectories of the given system through its solutions. More precisely, from a fixed point or state, we could reach an entire set of other states by varying the control. These are the so-called reachable sets, and the environment or the space in which the trajectories of certain control systems evolve may not necessarily be an Euclidean space but rather a differentiable manifold. These ideas led to the development of a new branch of control theory, called geometric control theory. In this presentation, we will discuss a few examples of both linear and nonlinear control systems, and we will look at how nonlinear control systems can be viewed as collections of vector fields on finite dimensional differentiable manifolds.

Public Events Committee seeking applications for funding

The Public Events Committee continues to seek applications for funding of “public events” on the SUNY Oneonta campus for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.

The application deadline is approaching – Friday, April 26, 2019.

Typical events that meet the “cultural and educational standards of the college” include guest speakers; arts and cultural activities; readings; concerts and public performances; and presentations geared to increase the positive cultural relationship within and between the college and the surrounding community.

Generally, funding awards are between $300 and $1000. Funding requests should demonstrate that substantial funding (preferably more than 50%) is sought from additional sources.

The “college sponsored” event should be held on campus and should benefit the entire campus community, NOT just a narrow interest group or population.

All proposals should include a budget and advertising plan.

The proposal must be submitted by a member of the faculty, staff, or a current or retired employee of the college.

For complete submission guidelines, link to the application form, and sample proposals, visit the Public Events Committee’s web page by searching for “Committee on Public Events” or going to
