Modelling and Control of Complex Networks
DescriptionThe main objective of this project is to investigate an accurate and full description of the structure for complex networks by using a different topology. The relationship between the topology of the network and its dynamic behaviours will be revealed. By considering different types of nonlinear constraints that exist in complex networks, the researchers will give some useful methods on how to reduce the unfavourable effects of the nonlinear constraints. As a further step towards understanding the dynamical behaviours of complex networks, the dynamical elements into the network nodes will be discussed in various complex networks. Classic control theory will be combined with modern control theory to investigate the issue of better control effects for the control and synchronization problems of complex networks. Finally, the researchers will propose several efficient methods to maintain the robustness of the complex networks against errors or attacks.
