Principal investigator

Martin Lazar is associate professor at the University of Dubrovnik. His research interests are related to:

  • Control theory: Control of parameter dependent systems (greedy control, averaged control), optimal control of parabolic problems
  • Microlocal analysis: PDEs and homogenisation, velocity averaging, microlocal defect functionals (1-scale H-measures, semiclassical measures, H-distributions)
  • Geophysical fluid dynamics: analytical modelling in oceanography

Since 2016. he is engaged as a vice rector for science and international relations.



Ivica Nakić is associate professor at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. His research interests include damping of vibrational systems, spectral and perturbation theory of linear operators and pencils including applications and numerical methods, robust control theory, control theory for partial differential equations, control theory for large-scale dynamical systems.



Zoran Tomljanović is associate professor at the Department of Mathematics, J.J. Strossmayer University of Osijek, Osijek.
His research interests are mainly within the field of numerical linear algebra, model reduction and control theory. In particular, they include damping optimization in mechanical systems, control theory for large-scale dynamical systems and matrix equations and its applications.

Postdoctoral Researchers

domagojtolicDomagoj Tolić is with RIT Croatia, Dubrovnik, which is an international campus of the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York, U.S.A.

His research interests are stability and estimation under intermittent and delayed information for nonlinear control systems. The developed theory is applied to problems in the area of multi-agent robotics. See his book and CV for more.
