Complex Systems & Engineering
Complexity is a pervasive theme in science, both for natural systems as well as for man-made (engineering) systems. Examples from the first category include biological systems, ‘the system earth’, and social organizations; and from the second category - (smart) power, gas and heat grids, distribution systems, automotive systems and sensor networks, financial systems, ‘systems-of-systems’ (e.g., in defense or emergency response systems), the ‘Internet of Things’ (interconnection of embedded computing-like devices within the existing internet), etc.
In this research line the experts at the DSSC do not only want to understand complex systems, but also get a grip on them to control and manage such systems. Research focuses on:
The structure of complex systems and the interaction between system components of complex systems as often formalized by networks, or layers (or even networks) of networks
The analysis and control of complex systems through the use of the data flow and communication/computation structure.
