This paper deals with the exponential stability of systems made of a hyperbolic PDE coupled with an ODE with different time scales, the dynamics of the PDE being much faster than that of the ODE. Such a difference of time scales is modeled though a small parameter ε multiplying the time derivative in the PDE, and our stability analysis relies on th...

This paper concerns some spectral properties of the scalar dynamical system defined by a linear delay-differential equation with two positive delays. More precisely, the existing links between the delays and the maximal multiplicity of the characteristic roots are explored, as well as the dominance of such roots compared with the spectrum localizat...

The aim of this paper is to give a presentation of the Python toolbox YALTAPy dedicated to the stability study of standard and fractional delay systems as well as its online version YALTAPy Online. Both toolboxes are derived from YALTA whose functionalities will be recalled here. Examples will be given to show how these toolboxes may be used.

It is well known that rational approximation theory involves degenerate hyperge-ometric functions and, in particular, the Padé approximation of the exponential function is closely related to Kummer hypergeometric functions. Recently, in the context of the study of the exponential stability of the trivial solution of delay-differential equations, a...

In this paper, we consider a mean field game model inspired by crowd motion where agents aim to reach a closed set, called target set, in minimal time. Congestion phenomena are modeled through a constraint on the velocity of an agent that depends on the average density of agents around their position. The model is considered in the presence of stat...

The paper deals with the controllability of finite-dimensional linear difference delay equations, i.e., dynamics for which the state at a given time $t$ is obtained as a linear combination of the control evaluated at time $t$ and of the state evaluated at finitely many previous instants of time $t-\Lambda_1,\dots,t-\Lambda_N$. Based on the realizat...

This paper focuses on the problem of multiplicity induced dominancy (MID) for a class of linear time-invariant systems represented by delay-differential equations. If the problem of generic MID was characterized in terms of properties of the roots of Kummer hypergeometric functions, the case of intermediate MID is still an open problem. The aim of...

In this paper, we consider a first-order deterministic mean field game model inspired by crowd motion in which agents moving in a given domain aim to reach a given target set in minimal time. To model interaction between agents, we assume that the maximal speed of an agent is bounded as a function of their position and the distribution of other age...

It has been observed in recent works that, for several classes of linear time-invariant time-delay systems of retarded or neutral type with a single delay, if a root of its characteristic equation attains its maximal multiplicity, then this root is the rightmost spectral value, and hence it determines the exponential behavior of the system, a prope...

The movement of each agent is described by a control system depending on their position, the distribution of other agents in the same population, and the di...

The paper considers a forward-backward system of parabolic PDEs arising in a Mean Field Game (MFG) model where every agent controls the drift of a trajectory subject to Brownian diffusion, trying to escape a given bounded domain $\Omega$ in minimal expected time. The important point is that agents are constrained by a bound on the drift depending o...

This paper studies a mean field game inspired by crowd motion in which agents evolve in a compact domain and want to reach its boundary minimizing the sum of their travel time and a given boundary cost. Interactions between agents occur through their dynamic, which depends on the distribution of all agents. We start by considering the associated op...

This paper considers a mean field game model inspired by crowd motion where agents want to leave a given bounded domain through a part of its boundary in minimal time. Each agent is free to move in any direction, but their maximal speed is bounded in terms of the average density of agents around their position in order to take into account congesti...

For a class of linear switched systems in continuous time a controllability condition implies that state feedbacks allow to achieve almost sure stabilization with arbitrary exponential decay rates. This is based on the Multiplicative Ergodic Theorem applied to an associated system in discrete time. This result is related to the stabilizability prob...

This paper is concerned with a class of coupled ODE/PDE systems with two time scales. The fast constant time scale is modeled by a small positive perturbation parameter. First, we state a general sufficient stability condition for such systems. This condition is also sufficient for the stability of the reduced and boundary-layer subsystems. However...

In this paper we address the exponential stability of a system of transport
equations with intermittent damping on a network of $N \geq 2$ circles
intersecting at a single point $O$. The $N$ equations are coupled through a
linear mixing of their values at $O$, described by a matrix $M$. The activity
of the intermittent damping is determined by pers...

In this paper, we study the relative controllability of linear difference equations with multiple delays in the state by using a suitable formula for the solutions of such systems in terms of their initial conditions, their control inputs, and some matrix-valued coefficients obtained recursively from the matrices defining the system. Thanks to such...

In this paper, we address the stability of non-autonomous difference
equations by providing an explicit formula expressing the solution at time $t$
in terms of the initial condition and time-dependent matrix coefficients. We
then relate the asymptotic behavior of such coefficients to that of solutions.
As a consequence, we obtain necessary and suff...

Motivated by previous work on the stabilization of persistently excited systems, this thesis addresses stability and stabilization issues for linear switched systems in finite and infinite dimensions. After a general introduction presenting the main motivations and important results from the literature, we analyze four problems.The first system we...

This paper considers the stabilization to the origin of a persistently excited linear system by means of a linear state feedback, where we suppose that the feedback law is not applied instantaneously, but after a certain positive delay (not necessarily constant). The main result is that, under certain spectral hypotheses on the linear system, stabi...

The first section of the chapter deals with finite-dimensional systems and gives two main results on stabilization, concerning neutrally stable systems and systems whose eigenvalues all have non-positive real parts. It also presents a result stati...

We study the stabilization of this system, and we prove that it is globally asymptotically stable with arbitrarily large exponential rate uniformly with respect to al...
