On the Stability of Multiple Time-Scale Systems.
The stability of time-invariant multiparameter singular perturbation problems is considered and the implications of two time-scale stability results for multiple time-scale systems are clarified. An example shows that the ...
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.
Generalization and Implementation of the GP Method to Generate Manufacturing Cell and Part Families.
We present an algorithm that considers a set of product types and a set of machine types. The algorithm works out a partition of p subsets of product types, called product families, and a partition of q subsets of machine ...
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 ...
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 ...
Simuiation of Surface Topography Fonned during the Intermittent Turning Processes.
This paper presents a methodology that employs computer simulation to dynamically generate the topography of a surface machined during an intermittent turning process. The methodology is based on a mathematical model that ...
Relative Equilibria for Two Rigid Bodies.
For simple mechanical systems with symmetry, a variational principle on configuration space determines relative equilibria. Here, this principle of symmetric criticality is applied to a problem of coupled rigid bodies. ...
