On Controllability, Uncertainty and Actuator Selection in the Context of Complex Networks

Master Thesis, FS13 (10271)

Recently controllability has received renewed attention in the context of complex networks. An interesting problem in this context is to place actuators in the network such that some measure of its controllability is maximized. Controllability is measured by an appropriate function that assigns to each set of actuators a real value that quantifies the controllability of the resulting system. Recently several measures associated with the controllability Gramian were shown to exhibit a combinatorial property called submodularity, which allows to find near optimal actuator placements efficiently for large scale networks. This thesis considers various aspects of controllability in complex networks.
