Abstract:In this talk, starting with the idea and motivation of neurodynamic optimization, we willreview the historic review and present the state of the art of neurodynamic optimizationwith many models and selected applications. Theoretical results about the state stability,output convergence, and solution optimality of the neurodynamic optimization modelswill be given along with many illustrative examples and simulation results. Four classesof neurodynamic optimization model design methodologies (i.e., penalty methods,Lagrange methods, duality methods, and optimality methods) will be delineated withdiscussions of their characteristics. In addition, it will be shown that many real-timecomputational optimization problems in information processing, system control, androbotics (e.g., parallel data selection and sorting, robust pole assignment in linearfeedback control systems, robust model predictive control for nonlinear systems,collision-free motion planning and control of kinematically redundant robot manipulatorswith or without torque optimization, and grasping force optimization of multi-fingeredrobotic hands) can be solved by means of neurodynamic optimization. Finally,prospective future research directions will be discussed.
