Arthur J. Krener
- IEEE Control Systems Award
Arthur J. Krener’s foundational work on nonlinear control provided the definitive treatment on controllability and observability of time-variant, real-world systems and has spurred tremendous progress in the development of nonlinear control theory. Krener’s work during the 1970s set the cornerstone for control of nonlinear systems and the resulting research paper was selected by the IEEE Control Systems Society as one the 25 Seminal Papers of the 20th Century for its far-reaching importance. Krener’s work on a bifurcation-based approach to controlling models of rotating stall and surge has been invaluable to the U.S. Air Force’s study of jet engine instabilities. He has also been a leader in developing software tools for implementing the latest methods of nonlinear control.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Krener is a research professor with the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA, USA.
