On Some Dynamical Properties of Hybrid Systems

Hybrid systems, being systems with interacting continuous and discrete evolution, are commonly used as models in process control, manufacturing, transportation, and embedded systems. In this talk we will discuss fundamental dynamical properties of hybrid systems, movitated by the growing interest in computer-based modeling and simulation of hybrid systems. We will generalize some concepts from smooth dynamical systems, but also study truly hybrid phenomena such as Zeno. The results will be illustrated by many examples.
