at the 2013 ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference

Jun Zhang, Emmanuelle Merced, Nelson Sepulveda, and Xiaobo Tan received the Best Conference Paper in Applications Award at the 2013 ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference, for their paper entitled “Optimal Compression of a Generalized Prandtl-Ishlinskii Operator in Hysteresis Modeling.” The paper combines information-theoretic tools with dynamic programming to approximate hysteresis models with maximum fidelity under given complexity constraints. It was one of the two Best Paper Awards given out at the conference; the other was in the Theory category.
