Mathematical engineering continuously addresses new applications and solves new problems. The expansion of existing methods and applications makes it difficult to maintain a common theoretical framework. This talk shows the potential of the structured low-rank approximation setting to unify problems and solution methods from diverse application areas. As a case study, I will use the dynamic measurement problem in metrology.


Ivan Markovsky is an Associate Professor at the department ELEC of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in February 2005. From 2006 to 2012 he was an Assistant Professor at the School of Electronics and Computer Science of the University of Southampton. He is a recipient of an ERC starting grant "Structured low-rank approximation: Theory, algorithms, and applications" 2010-2015, Householder Prize honorable mention 2008, and research mandate by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel research council 2012-2022. His main research interests are computational methods for system theory, identification, and data-driven control in the behavioral setting.
