Overview: The modulating functions was first introduced in 1954 by Shinbrot to identify parameters for linear dynamical systems. Then it has been extended to other classes of models including partial differential equations and fractional differential equations. Modulating functions introduces interesting features allowing accurate and robust identification and estimation of parameters and source terms. For instance, it reduces the estimation problem into an algebraic system of equations. It is computationally less costly and robust against noise. In addition, it requires neither initial nor boundary conditions.
Aim: Workshop on Advances in Theory and Application of The Modulating Function is one of the first of its kind in bringing people in the Modulating Function "MF" development field together. The aim of this workshop is to create a truly open forum for discussion among expert professors in the field as well as feedback from young researchers and mathematicians. In particular, we will address the scientific developments, advances and challenges in modulating functions based methods. The creation of this workshop is a natural response of the MF community to the increasing demand in the field, and it will position itself as a premier forum for AMF developers in information exchange and promotion of modeling diversity. Ultimately, the result of such a forum will benefit not only the model developers, but also as a service to the entire modeling, identification and functions implementation communities.
Witold Byrski obtained the PhD degree in Automatics in 1976 from AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland. He received Doctor Habilitatus "DrSc" degree in 1994 and in 2009 the scientific title of the Professor. He is employed on the position of a full professor and manages the group of Process Control at the Department of Automatic Control and Robotics "DACR", in Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Biomedical Eng. AGH-UST in Krakow. Since 1998 he is the Deputy Head of DACR. The field of his researches is covered by new integral algorithms for the exact state observation and for the identification of continuous dynamic models by the use of modulating function and convolution methods. Results of researches were published in monograph, in sections of other books, in papers, international conferences and congresses over 100 reviewed publications and over 100 other research rapports. He has managed several projects granted by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.As a visiting professor, he was invited and hosted in a few European universities such as:
- Birmingham University - School of Electrical Eng. "GB".
- Technical University of Denmark, Electrical Eng. Automation and Control Group, Lyngby "DEN".
- Lille University of Science and Technology (École Centrale - Villeneuve-d'Ascq) Laboratory of Automatic Control, Computer Science and Signal Processing "F".
- University of Groningen - Department of Mathematics, "NL".
