Networks of coupled dynamical systems provide a powerful way to model systems with enormously complex dynamics, such as the human brain. Control of synchronization in such networked systems has far reaching applications in many domains, including engineering and medicine. In this paper, we formulate the synchronization control in dynamical systems as an optimization problem and present a multi-objective genetic programming-based approach to infer optimal control functions that drive the system…

Synchronization of coupled neural networks with infinite-time distributed delays via quantized intermittent pinning control

This paper considers asymptotic synchronization of coupled neural networks with bounded time-varying discrete delay and infinite-time distributed delay (mixed delays) and a quantized intermittent pinning control scheme is designed to save both channel resources and control cost and reduce both the amount of transmitted information and channel blocking.

Digital twins in engineering dynamics: variational equation identification, feedback control design and their rapid update

Digital twins, as a rising concept in many industry sectors, have tremendous potential for engineering dynamics. Their practical applications, however, are hindered by the lack of near real-time

Sparse identification of nonlinear dynamics for rapid model recovery.

The proposed abrupt-SINDy architecture provides a new paradigm for the rapid and efficient recovery of a system model after abrupt changes, and shows that sparse updates to a previously identified model perform better with less data, have lower runtime complexity, and are less sensitive to noise than identifying an entirely new model.

Symbolic regression in materials science

We showcase the potential of symbolic regression as an analytic method for use in materials research. First, we briefly describe the current state-of-the-art method, genetic programming-based



Synchronization - A Universal Concept in Nonlinear Sciences

This work discusseschronization of complex dynamics by external forces, which involves synchronization of self-sustained oscillators and their phase, and its applications in oscillatory media and complex systems.

Optimal Control Theory

Of special interest in the context of this book is the material on the duality of optimal control and probabilistic inference; such duality suggests that neural information processing in sensory and motor areas may be more similar than currently thought.

IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Fundamental Theory and Applications

The aim of this special issue is to collect contributions from active researchers in this field to provide a snapshot of the depth and breadth of the current state of the art in CNN technology.

Brain dynamics : synchronization and activity patterns in pulse-coupled neural nets with delays and noise

SPEA2: Improving the strength pareto evolutionary algorithm

An improved version of SPEA, namely SPEA2, is proposed, which incorporates in contrast to its predecessor a fine-grained fitness assignment strategy, a density estimation technique, and an enhanced archive truncation method.


It is shown that the full set of hydromagnetic equations admit five more integrals, besides the energy integral, if dissipative processes are absent, which made it possible to formulate a variational principle for the force-free magnetic fields.
