###### Keynote: Computing and complex dynamics in robots

A recurrent subject in automata theory and computer science is an interesting problem about how machines are able to work, learn, and project complex behavior. In this talk, particularly I shall discuss how some cellular automata rules are able to simulate some computable systems from different interpretations, it is the problem about universality. These systems are able to produce and handle a huge number of information massively. In this context, an original problem conceptualized by John von Neumann from the 40s years is: How primitive and unreliable organisms are able to yield reliable components? How machines could construct machines? In biological terms it refers to the problem of self- reproduction and self-replication. In our laboratories, we implement these problems in physical robots, where some particular designs display computable systems assembled with modular robots and other constructions display collective complex behavior. Modular robots offer the characteristic to assemble and reconfigure every robot. In particular, we shall see in this talk a number of robots constructed by Cubelets to simulate Turing machines, Post machines, circuits, and non-trivial collective behavior. We shall discuss if these machines learn and develop knowledge as a consequence of automation and information.

###### Keynote: Hidden attractors and global stability in theoretical problems and engineering applications

The development of the theory of global stability, the theory of bifurcations, the theory of chaos, and new computing tech a fresh look at a number of well-known theoretical and practical problems in the analysis of multidimensional dynamical systems theory of hidden oscillations which represents the genesis of the modern era of Andronov’s theory of oscillations. The theory of hid classification of attractors as self-excited or hidden. While trivial attractors (equilibrium points) can be easily found analytically or num chaotic attractors may turn out to be a challenging problem (see, e.g. famous 16th Hilbert problem on the number and disposition of dimensional polynomial systems which is still unsolved). Self-excited attractors can be easily discovered when observing numerical from the vicinity of the equilibria. While hidden attractors have basins of attraction, which are not connected with equilibria, and their of special analytical and numerical methods.

For various applications, the transition of the system’s state to a hidden attractor, caused by external disturbances, may result in the cause of accidents and catastrophes. For various engineering applications the importance of identifying hidden attractors is rel determining the boundaries of global stability in the space of parameters and in the phase space. Outer estimations of the global s parameters and the birth of self-excited oscillations in the phase space can be obtained by the linearization around equilibria and the are related to various well-known conjectures on global stability by the first approximation (see, e.g. Andronov’s proof of the conjec stability by the first approximation, Aizerman and Kalman conjectures). Inner estimations of the global stability boundary can be obtained of global stability. In the gap between outer and inner estimations, there is an exact boundary of global stability which study bifurcations and hidden oscillations.

###### Keynote: Analytic continuation of the multiple hypergeometric functions, the crowding problem and related topics

Foundations of the theory of hypergeometric functions of two or more variables were established by well-known mathematicians in the works of the XIXth century. The extraordinary interest in these functions, which was observed at the end of the XXth century and continues in the present time, is caused not only by the abstract mathematical beauty of their theory, but also by deep applications to various subject areas. The use of such functions opens up the possibility of constructive solutions to contemporary problems of quantum field theory, probability theory and mathematical statistics, some problems of the theory of information transmission and image processing, etc. The talk presents the solution to the well-known difficult problem of analytical continuation of multiple hypergeometric functions. The obtained continuation formulas have the form of fast convergent series and provide an effective apparatus for calculating such functions. Computational algorithms based on such formulas are in demand in the issues listed above, where such functions arise. The talk also discusses an application of the constructed theory of analytical continuation to solve the “crowding problem” known in the practice of conformal mappings and related optimization problems.

###### Keynote: Problem of Search for Mathematical Expressions by Symbolic Regression Methods

Several optimization problems require finding a mathematical expression for a function. The class of these optimization problems and the problems involved in constructing numerical methods to solve them are presented. The keynote considers an approach to numerical solution of a problem using symbolic regression methods. It presents a general scheme for searching a mathematical expression using symbolic regression methods, compares several symbolic regression methods, and formulates the properties that symbolic regression methods must have to successfully solve the problem of finding a mathematical expression. The keynote presents a universal principle for designing effective algorithms to search for a mathematical expression while considering prior information. A general approach to constructing algorithms using symbolic regression methods and the principle of small variations are proposed. This approach can be useful in searching for mathematical expressions. Examples of solving the problem of searching for mathematical expressions of functions using symbolic regression methods are provided.
