On February 22, 2024, Lizan Kivits successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled: “Modelling and identification of physical linear networks”. It addresses the problem of data-driven modeling of interconnected linear systems, where the subsystems do not have a prior chosen input - output direction. The networks are therefore characterized by undirected…
After many years of teaching the MSc course System Identification, both in Eindhoven and formerly in Delft, Paul handed over the responsibility for this course to successor Maarten Schoukens. This was materialized in a session on Friday 31 March 2022, where Paul, in front of his last class audience, handed…
