Learning Dynamics Models with Stable Invariant Sets

This paper proposes a method to ensure that a dynamics model has a stable invariant set of general classes such as limit cycles and line attractors and proposes defining such a set as a primitive shape in a latent space and learning the transformation between the original and latent spaces.

Hybrid Systems Neural Control with Region-of-Attraction Planner

This work proposes a hierarchical, neural network (NN)-based method to control general hybrid systems and provides novel theoretical stability guarantees and conducts experiments in car tracking control, pogobot navigation, and bipedal walker locomotion.



Neural learning of vector fields for encoding stable dynamical systems

Neural learning of stable dynamical systems based on data-driven Lyapunov candidates

A neural learning scheme that estimates stable dynamical systems from demonstrations based on a two-stage process: first, a data-driven Lyapunov function candidate is estimated, and stability is incorporated by means of a novel method to respect local constraints in the neural learning.

An Uncertainty-Based Control Lyapunov Approach for Control-Affine Systems Modeled by Gaussian Process

An uncertainty-based control Lyapunov function which utilizes the model fidelity estimate of a Gaussian process model to drive the system in areas near training data with low uncertainty, which maximizes the probability that the system is stabilized in the presence of power constraints using equivalence to dynamic programming.

Learning Stable Nonlinear Dynamical Systems With Gaussian Mixture Models

A learning method is proposed, which is called Stable Estimator of Dynamical Systems (SEDS), to learn the parameters of the DS to ensure that all motions closely follow the demonstrations while ultimately reaching and stopping at the target.

This work proposes a method to obtain a Lyapunov-like function for stability analysis by learning the infinite horizon cost function with a Gaussian process based on approximate dynamic programming.

A Physically-Consistent Bayesian Non-Parametric Mixture Model for Dynamical System Learning

A physically-consistent Bayesian non-parametric approach for fitting Gaussian Mixture Models (GMM) to trajectory data and a data-efficient incremental learning framework is introduced that encodes a DS from batches of trajectories, while preserving global stability.

Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning

The treatment is comprehensive and self-contained, targeted at researchers and students in machine learning and applied statistics, and deals with the supervised learning problem for both regression and classification.
