In this talk, I will discuss recent work on design of reduced order controllers for systems modeled by PDEs. Traditional methods for design of controllers for PDE systems result in large scale control laws that are not implementable in real time. There have been several methods developed in the recent literature in an attempt to find a "unified framework" for low order controller design. An overview of these approaches will discussed, along with some open questions that remain.
