Many achievements of the information age, such as global communication systems, smart antennas, and advanced imaging systems for detection and diagnosis of medical and environmental problems, would not have been possible without advances in the fields of Communications and Digital Signal Processing and without related computational tools. Feedback Control is an essential enabler for applications ranging from high performance electromechanical and power electronic devices to high efficiency and environmentally friendly jet engines. Faculty and graduate students in the CDSP center work on the development, analysis, and implementation of cutting-edge algorithms for these and related problems such as high-performance execution of algorithms, design accessible models of complex and distributed systems, remote sensing, and pattern recognition. Our approaches range from theory development and experimental investigation to practical applications.
