Control of convex-monotone systems

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding


We define the notion of convex-monotone system and prove that for such systems the state trajectory x(⋅) is a convex function of the initial state x(0) and the input trajectory u(⋅). This observation gives a useful class of nonlinear dynamical systems for which control design can be performed by convex optimization. Applications to evolutionary dynamics of diseases and voltage stability in power networks are presented.
