2018年5月9日下午14：00，由党委研究生工作部主办，自动化学院承办的“研究生灵犀学术殿堂”第303期在长安校区自动化学院学术报告厅举办。加拿大皇家科学院院士、美国工程院外籍院士W.M. Wonham教授为师生们带来了题为“THE INTERNAL MODEL PRINCIPLE OF CONTROL THEORY”的学术报告，本次报告会由张仁远副教授主持，各位老师和广大感兴趣的学生参加了本次报告会。
W.M. Wonham received the B. Eng. degree in engineering physics from McGill University in 1956, and the Ph.D. in control engineering from the University of Cambridge (U.K.) in 1961. From 1961 to 1969 he was associated with several U.S. research groups in control. Since 1970 he has been a faculty member in Systems Control, with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Toronto. Wonham's research interests have included stochastic control and filtering, geometric multivariable control, and discrete-event systems. He is the author of "Linear Multivariable Control: A Geometric Approach" (Springer-Verlag: 3rd ed. 1985) and co-author (with C. Ma) of "Nonblocking Supervisory Control of State Tree Structures" (Springer-Verlag: 2005). Wonham is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a Life Fellow of the IEEE, a Foreign Member of the (U.S.) National Academy of Engineering, and an Honorary Professor of the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. In 1987 he received the IEEE Control Systems Science and Engineering Award and in 1990 was Brouwer Medallist of the Netherlands Mathematical Society. In 1996 he was appointed University Professor in the University of Toronto, and in 2000 University Professor Emeritus.
