The Behavioral Approach to Systems Theory

 

Two more students in the Applied Category Theory 2018 school wrote a blog article about something they read:

• Eliana Lorch and Joshua Tan, The behavioral approach to systems theory, The n-Category Café, 15 June 2018.

Eliana Lorch is a mathematician based in San Francisco. Joshua Tan is a grad student in computer science at the University of Oxford and one of the organizers of Applied Category Theory 2018.

They wrote a great summary of this paper, which has been an inspiration to me and many others:

• Jan Willems, The behavioral approach to open and interconnected systems, IEEE Control Systems 27 (2007), 46–99.

They also list many papers influenced by it, and raise a couple of interesting problems with Willems’ idea, which can probably be handled by generalizing it.

You can use Markdown or HTML in your comments. You can also use LaTeX, like this: $latex E = m c^2 $. The word 'latex' comes right after the first dollar sign, with a space after it.
