PhD topics and outlines

Dynamic analysis of delayed neural networks: Neural networks (NNs) are powerful in processing the associative memory and solving optimization problems, and provide a stepping stone in the research for AI. However, time-delays are unavoidable in an NN. This topic aims to investigate both positive and negative effects of time-delays on the dynamic performance, e.g. passivity, dissipativity, and multi-stability etc., of NNs. 

Time-delay systems and applications to networked control: Time-delay systems have been proven an effective method for analysis and control of networked control systems (NCSs). This topic aims to investigate suitable control strategies to deal with imperfections caused by limited network bandwidth and attackes from malicious agents.  Based on the proposed strategies, solutions to problems appearing in various industrial control systems are expected.
