Decomposition and Decentralized Control System Design: A Review of Frequency Domain Methods.
We provide a short review of the literature on design of decentralized control based on weak coupling measures for transfer function models. The notion of diagonal dominance for transfer functions has been suggested as a ...
Identification of Connectiviity in Neural Networks.
Analytical and experimental methods are provided for estimating synaptic connectivities from simultaneous recordings of multiple neurons. The results are based on detailed, yet flexible neuron models in which spike trains ...
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.
Development of a CAM System for the Rapid Prototyping Environment
The goal of this research was to develop a Computer-Aided Manufacturing system for rotational parts for application to small-scale manufacturing. The developed software, DPCAM, was to provide an intermediate step between ...
Characterization and Efficient Computation of the Structures Singular Value.
The concept of structured singular value was recently Introduced by Doyle (Proc. IEEE, vol. 129, pp. 242-250, 1982) as a tool for the analysis and synthesis of feedback systems with structured uncertainties. It is a key ...
Integration of Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) Systems with Computer Aided Design (CAD).
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 tying together these islands into ...
A Modelling of Semi-Batch Reactors for Melt Transesterification of Dimethyl Terephthalate with Ethylene Glycol.
A mathematical model of a semi-batch reactor has been developed to investigate the transesterification of dimethyl terephthalate with ethylene glycol catalyzed by metal acetate catalyst. The detailed kinetic scheme based ...
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 ...
Ode and Diffusion Limits in Large Symmetric Circuit Switched Networks.
This paper considers a large symmetric star-shaped circuit- switched network where each route requires one circuit from each of two links. Interarrival and holding times of calls are exponential. The process of the number ...
Stochastic Unit Commitment Scheduling and Dispatch of Electric Power Systems.
Unit commitment, including economic dispatch, is a key component of short term operation scheduling of an electric energy system. Common industry practice is based on the use of a 'priority list' for generation scheduling ...
