      The goal Objective of the course is for the students to be introduces about the optimality principles, techniques for optimization in complex systems and application of techniques for multi-criteria decisioning.
      The outcome Learning outcomes of the course are for the students to gain the following skills: to define optimization problem; to choose a technique to solve the optimization problem; to understand the techniques of nonlinear matrix inequalities; to apply multi-criteria decision technique.
      Contents of lectures Examples of convex programming; Design of controllers for complex systems based on Lyapunov function and convex programming; Basics of optimal control; Sufficient and necessary conditions of optimality; Principe of maximum; Dynamical programming; Introduction to dynamical game theory (Nash and Pareto equilibrium).
