Abstract : This volume contains the proceedings of the First International Workshop on Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control, HSCC'98, organized April 13-15, 1998, at the University of California, Berkeley. The focus of the workshop is on mathematical methods for the rigorous and systematic design and analysis of hybrid systems. A hybrid system consists of digital devices that interact with analog environments. Driven by rapid advances in digital controller technology, hybrid systems are objects of investigation of increasing relevance and importance. The emerging area of hybrid systems research lies at the crossroads of computer science and control theory computer science contributes expertise on the digital aspects of a hybrid system, and control theory contributes expertise on the analog aspects. Since both research communities speak largely different languages, and employ largely different methods, a major purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers from both disciplines. The workshop will also include demonstrations of software tools for the design, analysis, and simulation of hybrid systems.
