Performance Evaluation and Perturbation Analysis of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems.
This is a conceptual and speculative paper concerning the future development of system and control theory in operational and discrete event systems with particular emphasis on the techniques of perturbation analysia.
Probing the Nature of the Voltage-Sensing Mechanism of the Mitochondrial Outer Membrane Channel, VDAC: Initial Kinetic Analysis and Aluminum Chloride-Induced Alterations
VDAC channels are the major permeability pathways through the mitochondrial outer membrane. They exist in a high conducting, "open," state at low potentials and a low conducting, "closed," state at high potentials (>+/- ...
Object-Oriented Manipulator Design Exerciser (OOMANEX).
The design of-a robotic manipulator system involves complex computations for solving nonlinear, coupled dynamical equations. Our goal to resolve the design difficulties was to have a general program package combining the ...
Some recently proposed extensions to relational database systems as well as deductive database systems, require support for processing multiple queries. For example, in a database system enhanced with inference capabilities, ...
A database system should support a rich variety of meta-data describing and controlling the management and use of data. Few present database systems provide even rudimentary integrated meta-data management facilities.
Bounding Functions of Markov processes and the Shortest Queue Problem.
In this paper we prove a general lemma which can be used to show that the expectation of a nonnegative function of the state of a time-homogeneous Markov process is uniformly bounded in time. This is reminiscent of the ...
Efficient Algorithms for Circular-Arc Containment Graphs
In the recent past, a wide variety of algorithms have been developed for a class of intersection graphs, called interval graphs. As a generalization of interval graphs, circular-arc graphs have also been studied extensively. ...
Convergence of spectral methods for hyperbolic initial-boundary value systems

Integration of Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) Through Database Interoperability
The traditional, fragmented approach to increasing manufacturing efficiency has resulted in "islands of automation" in our factories. Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is the goal of typing together these islands ...
Matrix-Geometric Solution for Two Node Tandem Queueing Systems with Phase-Type Servers Subject to Blocking and Failures.
A two node tandem queueing system with phase-type servers and Bernoulli arrivals is considered in discrete-time when servers are subject to bloclring and failuree. The invariant probability vector of the underlying finite ...
