AB - Many dynamical systems possess symmetries, e.g. rotational and translational invariances of mechanical systems. These can be beneficially exploited in the design of numerical optimal control methods. We present a model predictive control scheme which is based on a library of precomputed motion primitives. The primitives are equivalence classes w.r.t. the symmetry of the optimal control problems. Trim primitives as relative equilibria w.r.t. this symmetry, play a crucial role in the algorithm. The approach is illustrated using an academic mobile robot example.

AB - In this work we review the novel framework for the computation of finite dimensional invariant sets of infinite dimensional dynamical systems developed in [6] and [36]. By utilizing results on embedding techniques for infinite dimensional systems we extend a classical subdivision scheme [8] as well as a continuation algorithm [7] for the computation of attractors and invariant manifolds of finite dimensional systems to the infinite dimensional case. We show how to implement this approach for the analysis of delay differential equations and partial differential equations and illustrate the feasibility of our implementation by computing the attractor of the Mackey-Glass equation and the unstable manifold of the one-dimensional Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation.

AB - Many dimensionality and model reduction techniques rely on estimating dominant eigenfunctions of associated dynamical operators from data. Important examples include the Koopman operator and its generator, but also the Schrödinger operator. We propose a kernel-based method for the approximation of differential operators in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces and show how eigenfunctions can be estimated by solving auxiliary matrix eigenvalue problems. The resulting algorithms are applied to molecular dynamics and quantum chemistry examples. Furthermore, we exploit that, under certain conditions, the Schrödinger operator can be transformed into a Kolmogorov backward operator corresponding to a drift-diffusion process and vice versa. This allows us to apply methods developed for the analysis of high-dimensional stochastic differential equations to quantum mechanical systems.

AB - In this work we present a set-oriented path following method for the computation of relative global
attractors of parameter-dependent dynamical systems. We start with an initial approximation of the
relative global attractor for a fixed parameter λ0 computed by a set-oriented subdivision method.
By using previously obtained approximations of the parameter-dependent relative global attractor
we can track it with respect to a one-dimensional parameter λ > λ0 without restarting the whole
subdivision procedure. We illustrate the feasibility of the set-oriented path following method by
exploring the dynamics in low-dimensional models for shear flows during the transition to turbulence
and of large-scale atmospheric regime changes .

AB - Multi-objective optimization is an active field of research that has many applications. Owing to its success and because decision-making processes are becoming more and more complex, there is a recent trend for incorporating many objectives into such problems. The challenge with such problems, however, is that the dimensions of the solution sets—the so-called Pareto sets and fronts—grow with the number of objectives. It is thus no longer possible to compute or to approximate the entire solution set of a given problem that contains many (e.g. more than three) objectives. On the other hand, the computation of single solutions (e.g. via scalarization methods) leads to unsatisfying results in many cases, even if user preferences are incorporated. In this article, the Pareto Explorer tool is presented—a global/local exploration tool for the treatment of many-objective optimization problems (MaOPs). In the first step, a solution of the problem is computed via a global search algorithm that ideally already includes user preferences. In the second step, a local search along the Pareto set/front of the given MaOP is performed in user specified directions. For this, several continuation-like procedures are proposed that can incorporate preferences defined in decision, objective, or in weight space. The applicability and usefulness of Pareto Explorer is demonstrated on benchmark problems as well as on an application from industrial laundry design.

AB - We derive a data-driven method for the approximation of the Koopman generator called gEDMD, which can be regarded as a straightforward extension of EDMD (extended dynamic mode decomposition). This approach is applicable to deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems. It can be used for computing eigenvalues, eigenfunctions, and modes of the generator and for system identification. In addition to learning the governing equations of deterministic systems, which then reduces to SINDy (sparse identification of nonlinear dynamics), it is possible to identify the drift and diffusion terms of stochastic differential equations from data. Moreover, we apply gEDMD to derive coarse-grained models of high-dimensional systems, and also to determine efficient model predictive control strategies. We highlight relationships with other methods and demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed methods using several guiding examples and prototypical molecular dynamics problems.

AB - In the development of model predictive controllers for PDE-constrained problems, the use of reduced order models is essential to enable real-time applicability. Besides local linearization approaches, proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) has been most widely used in the past in order to derive such models. Due to the huge advances concerning both theory as well as the numerical approximation, a very promising alternative based on the Koopman operator has recently emerged. In this chapter, we present two control strategies for model predictive control of nonlinear PDEs using data-efficient approximations of the Koopman operator. In the first one, the dynamic control system is replaced by a small number of autonomous systems with different yet constant inputs. The control problem is consequently transformed into a switching problem. In the second approach, a bilinear surrogate model is obtained via a convex combination of these autonomous systems. Using a recent convergence result for extended dynamic mode decomposition (EDMD), convergence of the reduced objective function can be shown. We study the properties of these two strategies with respect to solution quality, data requirements, and complexity of the resulting optimization problem using the 1-dimensional Burgers equation and the 2-dimensional Navier–Stokes equations as examples. Finally, an extension for online adaptivity is presented.

AB - The control of complex systems is of critical importance in many branches of science, engineering, and industry, many of which are governed by nonlinear partial differential equations. Controlling an unsteady fluid flow is particularly important, as flow control is a key enabler for technologies in energy (e.g., wind, tidal, and combustion), transportation (e.g., planes, trains, and automobiles), security (e.g., tracking airborne contamination), and health (e.g., artificial hearts and artificial respiration). However, the high-dimensional, nonlinear, and multi-scale dynamics make real-time feedback control infeasible. Fortunately, these high- dimensional systems exhibit dominant, low-dimensional patterns of activity that can be exploited for effective control in the sense that knowledge of the entire state of a system is not required. Advances in machine learning have the potential to revolutionize flow control given its ability to extract principled, low-rank feature spaces characterizing such complex systems.We present a novel deep learning modelpredictive control framework that exploits low-rank features of the flow in order to achieve considerable improvements to control performance. Instead of predicting the entire fluid state, we use a recurrent neural network (RNN) to accurately predict the control relevant quantities of the system, which are then embedded into an MPC framework to construct a feedback loop. In order to lower the data requirements and to improve the prediction accuracy and thus the control performance, incoming sensor data are used to update the RNN online. The results are validated using varying fluid flow examples of increasing complexity.

AB - In recent years, the success of the Koopman operator in dynamical systems
analysis has also fueled the development of Koopman operator-based control
frameworks. In order to preserve the relatively low data requirements for an
approximation via Dynamic Mode Decomposition, a quantization approach was
recently proposed in [Peitz & Klus, Automatica 106, 2019]. This way, control
of nonlinear dynamical systems can be realized by means of switched systems
techniques, using only a finite set of autonomous Koopman operator-based
reduced models. These individual systems can be approximated very efficiently
from data. The main idea is to transform a control system into a set of
autonomous systems for which the optimal switching sequence has to be computed.
In this article, we extend these results to continuous control inputs using
relaxation. This way, we combine the advantages of the data efficiency of
approximating a finite set of autonomous systems with continuous controls. We
show that when using the Koopman generator, this relaxation --- realized by
linear interpolation between two operators --- does not introduce any error for
control affine systems. This allows us to control high-dimensional nonlinear
systems using bilinear, low-dimensional surrogate models. The efficiency of the
proposed approach is demonstrated using several examples with increasing
complexity, from the Duffing oscillator to the chaotic fluidic pinball.

AB - In backward error analysis, an approximate solution to an equation is compared to the exact solution to a nearby ‘modified’ equation. In numerical ordinary differential equations, the two agree up to any power of the step size. If the differential equation has a geometric property then the modified equation may share it. In this way, known properties of differential equations can be applied to the approximation. But for partial differential equations, the known modified equations are of higher order, limiting applicability of the theory. Therefore, we study symmetric solutions of discretized
partial differential equations that arise from a discrete variational principle. These symmetric solutions obey infinite-dimensional functional equations. We show that these equations admit second-order modified equations which are Hamiltonian and also possess first-order Lagrangians in modified coordinates. The modified equation and its associated structures are computed explicitly for the case of rotating travelling waves in the nonlinear wave equation.

AB - In real-world problems, uncertainties (e.g., errors in the measurement,
precision errors) often lead to poor performance of numerical algorithms when
not explicitly taken into account. This is also the case for control problems,
where optimal solutions can degrade in quality or even become infeasible. Thus,
there is the need to design methods that can handle uncertainty. In this work,
we consider nonlinear multi-objective optimal control problems with uncertainty
on the initial conditions, and in particular their incorporation into a
feedback loop via model predictive control (MPC). In multi-objective optimal
control, an optimal compromise between multiple conflicting criteria has to be
found. For such problems, not much has been reported in terms of uncertainties.
To address this problem class, we design an offline/online framework to compute
an approximation of efficient control strategies. This approach is closely
related to explicit MPC for nonlinear systems, where the potentially expensive
optimization problem is solved in an offline phase in order to enable fast
solutions in the online phase. In order to reduce the numerical cost of the
offline phase, we exploit symmetries in the control problems. Furthermore, in
order to ensure optimality of the solutions, we include an additional online
optimization step, which is considerably cheaper than the original
multi-objective optimization problem. We test our framework on a car
maneuvering problem where safety and speed are the objectives. The
multi-objective framework allows for online adaptations of the desired
objective. Alternatively, an automatic scalarizing procedure yields very
efficient feedback controls. Our results show that the method is capable of
designing driving strategies that deal better with uncertainties in the initial
conditions, which translates into potentially safer and faster driving
strategies.
