Modeling of complex environment
We want to model phenomena such as a temporary loss of connection (e.g. synchronisation of the movements through haptic interfaces), a nonhomogeneous environment (e.g. case of cryogenic systems) or the presence of the human factor in the control loop (e.g. grid systems) but also problems involved with technological constraints (e.g. range of the sensors). The mathematical models concerned include integro-differential, partial differential equations, algebraic inequalities with the presence of several time scales, whose variables and/or parameters must satisfy certain constraints (for instance, positivity).
