Stage M2 (2018): Contrôle optimal d’allocation de ressources dans une bactérie

Les mécanismes de l’adaptation des bactéries à un environnement fluctuant sont primordiaux, tant en biologie fondamentale que pour les applications biotechnologiques. Il s’agira de reprendre un modèle existant [1] décrivant comment une bactérie (E. coli)  alloue ses ressources entre croissance globale et métabolisme pour obtenir un taux de croissance maximum. On considérera plusieurs cas pour …

Postdoc position at Inria Sophia: Optimal control and averaging

Les techniques de moyennisation sont souvent utilisées pour analyser l’évolution des variables lentes de systèmes dynamiques admettant une décomposition lent-rapide, notamment en mécanique céleste (théorie lunaire). Plus récemment, ces outils ont été introduits en contrôle optimal pour étudier le transfert orbital d’un engin spatial à faible propulsion, et ainsi obtenir une description analytique des trajectoires …

Averaging in optimal control with applications to orbital transfer with low thrust

Averaging techniques are often used to analyze the slow dynamics in dynamical systems admitting slow and fast variables, in particular in celestial mechanics (lunar theory). More recently, they were introduced in optimal control to analyze the orbital tranfer of a satellite using  low propulsion and get a complete analytical description of the motion in the …

Averaging in optimal control and applications

For problems of optimal control whose dynamics exhibit fast and slow variables, averaging is a relevant approach [1, 4]. One possibility is to average the extremal flow given by Pontryagin maximum principle, but other approaches are also available. A typical application is control in space mechanics [3, 2]. The motion of a spacecraft can be …
