DYNAMAN: A Tool for Manipulator Design and Analysis.
This report describes a method to formulate the dynamic equations of a robot manipulator with N links and with either revolute or prismatic joints using a Newton-Euler formulation. A general- purpose tool for analysis and ...

The Role of Gender, Androgyny and Attraction in Predicting the Identity and Effectiveness of Emergent Leaders
This field study used groups performing "sex-neutral" tasks over a six- to fifteen-week period to examine determinants of emergent leadership and leadership effectiveness. The study included 149 subjects in 35 task ...
Fiscal Illusion in Public Finance: A Theoretical and Empirical Study
This study of fiscal illusion begins by surveying existing studies of its nature and consequences: finding no consensus upon its definition proposes a comprehensive one: "the misperception by one or more individuals of ...
The Relationship Between Women's Perceptions of the Campus Environment and Self-Esteem as Moderated by Women's Identity Attitudes
An examination of the relationships among undergraduate women's self-esteem, perceptions of the campus environment, and women's identity attitudes (i.e., attitudes about, and identification with, women and the sociopolitical ...
A Simple Proof of Stability on the Center Manifold for Hopf Bifurcation.
A simple proof is presented for a well known fact about Hopf bifurcation: if the loss of an equilibrium point results in periodic solutions via Hopf bifurcation, then the stability ot these periodic solutions is determined ...
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 ...
Robustness under Uncertainly with Phase Information.
The framework of Doyle's structured angular value is extended to take advantage of possibly available phase information on the dynamic uncertainty. A computable upper bound is obtained for this phase-sensitive structured ...
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.
