|Summary||The objective of this proposal is to develop and analyze a pseudospectral framework for the integrated control and optimization of the very large-scale control system (thousands of sensors and actuators) found in the design of large telescopes based on segmented mirror technology. The proposed approach is exploratory in nature, and if successful, is expected to have long-term sustained impact on the development of extremely large telescopes. The proposed research parallels the techniques that are currently being implemented on the segmented mirror demonstrator.|
