Mr. Mengmou Li,
Dept. of Electrical & Electronic Engineering
The University of Hong Kong


In this talk, we investigate a distributed optimization problem via input feedforward passivity (IFP) by proposing an IFP-based continuous-time distributed algorithm. We show that some important problems in distributed optimization can be solved within this IFP framework, including uniformly jointly strongly connected graphs (UJSC), fully distributed design, discrete-time communication, and discretization.


Biography of the speaker:
Mengmou Li received his B.S. degree in physics from Zhejiang University, Zhejiang, China, in 2016. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Hong Kong. From October 2018 to December 2018, he was a visiting student in Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China. From September 2019 to December 2019, he was a visiting researcher at the School of Engineering, Osaka University, Japan. His research interests include distributed optimization, consensus and synchronization.
