Fifteenth International Symposium on
Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems University of Notre Dame,
August 12-16, 2002
MTNS is a prime conference in the general area of mathematical
systems theory. The symposium is interdisciplinary and attracts
mathematicians, engineers and researchers working in any aspect
of systems theory.
MTNS 2002 will be held on the campus of the University of Notre
Dame from Monday August 12 through Friday August 16, 2002.
The symposium program will include plenary lectures, special
topic invited lectures, mini-symposia, mini-courses, special
topic sessions and contributed papers.
MTNS is usually organized every two years and traditionally
covers areas involving a wide range of research directions in
mathematical systems, networks and control theory.
The MTNS symposium will be held in De Bartolo Hall.
