Abstract : The 1992-1993 year in Control Theory focused on robotics, optimal control for nonsmooth geometric data, adaptive control and filtering, discrete event systems, and power systems. It brought together mathematicians, electrical engineers and practitioners, who identified current difficulties and challenges. The 1993-1994 year in Emerging Applications of Probability brought together computer scientists and probabilists; it also dealt with stochastic models in geosystems, hidden Markov processes in speech and vision, stochastic networks and branching processes. The 1994-1995 year in Waves and Scattering dealt with random waves, numerical methods including hybrid methods (FFT and wavelets), and inverse problems, such as nondestructive evaluation, acoustics, NMR, Electro-magnetic, and ground penetrating radar.
