— One of the key component of an Adaptive Optics system is the deformable mirror. This mirror can correct the atmospheric turbulence effects by changing its shape. In the last years Adaptive Secondary Mirrors (ASM) have been developed and the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) will be soon equipped with two ASMs. Each LBT ASM unit has 672 voice-coil force(More)

— The inability of existing theoretical and practical tools to scaleably and efficiently deal with the control of complex, uncertain and time-changing large-scale systems, not only leads to a effort-, time-and cost-consuming deployment of Large-Scale Control Systems (LSCSs), but also prohibits the wide application of LSCS in areas and applications where(More)
Several multiple model adaptive control architectures have been proposed in the literature. Despite many advances in theory, the crucial question of how to synthesize the pairs model/controller in a structurally optimal way is to a large extent not addressed. In particular, it is not clear how to place the pairs model/controller is such a way that the(More)
