Complex, nonlinear dynamical systems are pervasive across many Army relevant scientific disciplines, including turbulence, robotics, and reconfigurable active matter. Typically, our engineering objectives are to control the dynamics. However, our inability to achieve these objectives for a variety of high-dimensional dynamical systems is due to a lack of mathematical tools to describe underlying salient, particularly when it comes to control of such systems. This talk focuses on the Koopman theoretic based spectral decomposition perspective for extracting these features.
