Intensive Tutorial Course
INTRODUCTION TO INTERVAL ARITHMETIC AND ITS APPLICATIONS
Dr. Josep VehÝ, Universitat de Girona
Prof. J. Garloff, University of Applied Sciences, Konstanz, Germany.
Prof. V. Kreinovich, University of Texas at El Paso, USA.
Prof. B. Barmish, University of Wisconsin at Madison, USA.
22-23 February 1999, Universitat de Girona, Girona, Spain.
In coincidence with the workshop MISC'99 to be held on 24-26 February
1999 in Girona, a pre-workshop tutorial course "Introduction to interval
arithmetic and its applications" will be organized by the University of
Girona. The aim of the course is to bring together researchers and
doctorate students that work in systems and control engineering so as to
give them the opportunity to have a knowledge of the method of intervals
and to stimulate discussion of relevant problems and fertile lines of
Three prominent speakers, Professor JŘrgen Garloff, Professor Vladik
Kreinovich and Professor Bob Barmish, will provide an interesting and
comprehensive state-of-the-art tutorial on motivations, basic theories
and applications of interval analysis to systems and control. The past
two decades have witnessed steadily increasing recognition and
appreciation of Interval Analysis in solving problems in systems and
control engineering. For instance, problems like analysis and synthesis
of robust controllers for uncertain plants or fuzzy interference have
been stated from the interval point of view. Recent developments have
generated a great deal of interests in emerging tools aimed at
exploiting qualitative, semiqualitative and interval simulation and
their application to fault detection and diagnosis and to system
