Mathematical Stability Analysis in Biomechanics and Robotics

Date: February 15 - 17, 2007

Organizers: Peter Giesl (München), Heiko Wagner (Münster)

The movements of humans, animals or robots can be modelled by differential equations, and their stability is analyzed using mathematical methods. In this workshop international scientists from mathematics, biomechanics and robotics discussed stability from different viewpoints. Topics included modelling, mathematical analysis using methods from numerics, optimization and dynamical systems, as well as the design and analysis of robots, control of their movements and applications to medicine and prothetics. Besides 15 talks which stimulated a vivid discussion, the scientists presented their work in a showcase.
