Thesis project in optimization and systems theory, 30 HP
Goal
The goal for the thesis project is to give training of students in
applying what has been learnt to practical or theoretic problems, and
at the same time to give training in presenting finished work both
orally and in writing.
Obligatory prerequisites
To begin with the thesis project in optimization and systems theory,
the student must meet those general requirements by KTH, which implies
that one should have taken at least 240 HP. Further more, one should
have also obtained a rather deep understanding of the field. Thus one
must have passed the following courses (or equivalent):

SF1974
Optimeringslära och Markovprocesser, 9hp, per 2,3, or
SF1811
Optimization for F (or SF1841), 6hp, per 3

DN2220
Tillämpade numeriska metoder I, 6hp, per 3,4, or
DN2251
Tillämpade numeriska metoder III (or DN2221 and DN2222) , 9hp, per 1,2
 At least three of the following six courses:

SF2812
Applied Linear Optimization, 7.5hp, per 1

SF2822
Applied Nonlinear Optimization, 7.5hp, per 2

SF2832
Mathematical Systems Theory, 7.5hp, per 3

SF2842
Geometric Control Theory, 7.5hp, per 2

SF2852
Optimal Control Theory, 7.5hp, per 4

SF2863
Systems Engineering, 7.5hp, per 2

Application
One should discuss a possible project with a faculty member at the
division first. Please fill the applicable items on the division's
form in advance. If the application is approved, the student will be
assigned an examiner and then the formal application can be filed to
the school.
