Optimization and Control
Examples include determining strategies for the control of of posture in humans in sports such as slack-lining and tight-rope walking, possible control mechanisms involved in the evolution of gliding flight in animals, learning how to crawl, navigate, swim, the dynamics and control of intermittent flight and swimming, strategies for controlling protein misaggregation in deterministic and stochastic settings, and most recently the control of aging in complex networks and multi-cellular organisms.
