EDUCATION

Mr. Lyubomir T. Gruyitch is Certified Mechanical Engineer (Dipl. M. Eng.), Master of Electrical Engineering Sciences (M. E. E. Sc.), and Doctor of Engineering Sciences (D. Sc.) (All with the University of Belgrade, Serbia).

RESEARCH

The main scientific and engineering contributions and interests by Dr. Lyubomir T. Gruyitch have been in the next areas:

° Dynamics and modeling of engineering systems including neural and fuzzy-neural networks.

° Linear and nonlinear control systems theory. Synthesis of robust, stabilizing and/or tracking control of technical plants.

° Stability theory of nonlinear dynamical systems with diverse applications.

° Time, physical principles, relativity theory, dynamical systems with multiple time scales and control.

° Trackability and tracking theory of linear and nonlinear control systems. Its applications to various technical plants.

Dr. Gruyitch was a leading contributor to the creation of the research Laboratory of Automatic Control, Mechatronics, Manufacturing Engineering and Systems Engineering of the National School of Engineers (Belfort, France), and a founder of the educational and research Laboratory of Automatic Control of the FME.
