Web Link My research interests are in the broad area of system and control theory, and its applications. At the moment I am working on problems in stochastic realization, specifically approximating high-order Markov and hidden Markov processes by lower-order processes, and the large deviation properties of such processes. On the applications front, I am interested in applying these (or any other appropriate) ideas to problems in computational biology and quantitative finance.

A UT Dallas interdisciplinary researcher has launched a human genome analysis project intended to create a mathematical model that improves the efficacy of cancer drugs while reducing their manufacturing costs by as much as 30 percent.
A three-year, $305,000 grant from the National Science Foundation will fund Dr. Mathukumalli “Sagar” Vidyasagar’s development of a new method for detecting DNA sequence similarities.
“What I propose to do is to find mathematical models of how a cross section of cancer patients would react to a particular clinical trial drug,” he said. “If it is likely that an unacceptably high fraction would react adversely, that would allow the developers to kill that program in a timely manner.”
Bioengineering Head to be Inducted as Fellow of Royal Society
Dr. Mathukumalli Vidyasagar, an internationally known expert in control and system theory, has been elected a Fellow of The Royal Society, the oldest continuously operating scientific society in the world.
Vidyasagar, head of theDepartment of Bioengineeringat The University of Texas at Dallas, joins the ranks of the most distinguished international scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering and medicine.
Vidyasagar’s selection recognizes his contributions to various aspects of control and system theory, robotics, statistical learning theory and computational biology. His citation reads: “He has combined probability theory, combinatorics, and artificial intelligence to produce a beautiful unified theory of statistical learning, and used it to solve NP-hard design problems.”
