Nonlinear Stabilizing Control of High Angle of Attack Flight Dynamics.
This paper discusses a new approach to the feedback control of aircraft at high angles of attack. This approach is based on recent results on control of nonlinear systems at bifurcation points [3, 4, 5]. The lateral dynamics ...
Robustness in the Presence of Joint Parametric Uncertainty and Unmodeled Dynamics.
It is shown that, in the case of joint real parametric and complex uncertainty, Doyle's structured singular value can be obtained as the solution of a smooth constrained optimization problem. While this problem may have ...
Switched Scalar Quantizers for Hidden Markov Sources.
This paper describes a new algorithm for designing Switched Scalar Quantizers for Hidden Markov sources. The design problem is cast as a nonlinear optimization problem. The optimization variables are the thresholds and ...
Structure of a Flexible Manufacturing Protocol for Design and Control of a Vertical Machining Cell
The thesis presented here develops the Flexible Manufacturing Protocol (FMP) for use in CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing). The philosophy of the FMP is discussed, as well as the FMP structure. A vertical machining ...
Convexity of the Larget Singular Value of e^DMe^-D - a Convexity Lemma.
A rigorous proof is given for a convexity lemma used by Chu and Doyle to prove the convexity of the largest singular value of e^DMe^-D on a commuting, convex subset of matrices.
Fluorescence Monitoring of Aromatic Compounds in a Multicomponent System.
There have been many studies on the use of fluorescence measurements to monitor the concentrations of aromatic compounds. Recently, there are a few commercial fluorescence probes on the market that are tuned to a fixed ...
Complexity Results for Rectangle Intersection and Overlap Graphs.
Let R be a family of iso-oriented rectangles in the plane. A graph G = (V, E) is called a rectangle intersection (resp., overlap) graph for R if there is a one-to-one correspondence between V and R such that two vertices ...
On the Deterministic-Code Capacity of the Multiple-Access Arbitrarily Varying Channel.
The capacity region of the multiple-access arbitrarily varying channel (AVC) was characterized by Jahn, assuming that the region had a nonempty interior; however, he did not indicate how one could decide whether or not the ...
Dependence of Measured Fluorescence Signal on Fluorophore Concentration.
The objective of this work is to develop a model which predicts the major factors affecting the fluorescence signal detected by a commercial fluorescence probe. The probe considered has a surface-type light-source/detector ...
