Centre for Interdisciplinary Computational and Dynamical Analysis (CICADA)
The University of Manchester has recently created a Centre for Interdisciplinary Computational and Dynamical Analysis (CICADA) working at the boundaries between mathematics, computer science and control engineering.
This centre has received £1.7m funding from EPSRC to build a centre of excellence and a national resource to explore new mathematical and computational methods for analysing hybrid systems, asynchronous systems and developing adaptive control methods for these systems. Funding ran from November 2007 to April 2012 and CICADA activity has continued in the form of a Graduate course in Modelling of Hybrid Systems and the publication of the CICADA Collection of problems and methods for use in teaching and research.
- The CICADA Collection is a summary of problems and methods that have been important in the development of research and teaching derived from the CICADA project. Thanks to Younes Chahlaoui and Margarita Korovina who compiled and edited the contributions of all CICADA members.Download here
