In Memoriam

Dr. Alfred Fettweis We are greatly saddened to have lost one of the research monuments in the field of circuits and systems, Dr. Alfred Fettweis, who passed away on August 20, 2015 in Bochum/Germany. Alfred Leo Maria Fettweis was born on November 27, 1926 in Eupen/Belgium and had during his entire life an intense link with the city of Leuven and our university, culminating in the honorary doctoral degree that he received at KU Leuven on November 30, 1988.

An obituary is given in Dutch on our university news site

Stadius Center for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing and Data Analytics

STADIUS is headed by Prof. Marc Moonen
Academic Staff: Prof. Jan Aerts , Prof. Alexander Bertrand , Prof. Jos De Brabanter , Prof. Lieven De Lathauwer , Prof. Bart De Moor , Prof. Marc Moonen , Prof. Yves Moreau , Prof. Panagiotis Patrinos , Prof. Johan Suykens , Prof. Sabine Van Huffel , Prof. Toon van Waterschoot and Prof. Bart Vanrumste

STADIUS's major research objective is to contribute to the development of improved digital (control and signal processing) systems, that incorporate advanced mathematical modeling techniques as a crucial new ingredient.

To achieve this goal, a variety of research activities are set up, ranging from fundamental/theoretical work (signal theory, linear and nonlinear systems - including complex systems and neural networks - theory, circuit theory and control theory), to applications driven algorithm design and implementation.

STADIUS draws concepts from mathematical fields such as linear and multi-linear algebra, statistics, discrete mathematics, differential geometry, optimization, etc. Its strategic basic research is focused on generic translations of basic concepts into algorithmic implementations, focusing on numerical linear algebra issues as well as software and hardware implementation issues. Our ultimate goal is to prove that such mathematical modeling based algorithms provide significant performance improvement.

To this aim, three specific application fields are targetted, namely digital communications, biomedicine and modeling and control of industrial processes and mechatronic products.
