In this talk, first we provide some motivations to study Differential Algebraic Equations (DAEs). Then, various controllability concepts for DAEs have been investigated. The reachable controllability of DAEs which has been less regarded in the literature has been discussed and it has been related to the controllability of a state space system (system governed by Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs)).
Vikas Kumar Mishra recently finished PhD in the Mathematics Department of IIT Patna. He did his B. Sc. from the University of Allahabad and M. Sc. in Applied Mathematics from IIT Roorkee. His research interests involve Differential Algebraic Equations (DAEs) and Mathematical Control Theory.
