Model Reduction via the Karhunen-Loeve Expansion Part II: Some Elementary Examples
In Part II of this paper we present some elementary examples of distributed parameter system model reduction using the techniques described in Part I. In particular, we focus on using theKarhunen-Loeve expansion and ...
Modeling and Model Reduction for Control and Optimization of Epitaxial Growth in a Commercial Rapid Thermal Chemical Vapor Deposition Reactor
In December 1996, a project was initiated at the Institute for Systems Research (ISR), under an agreement between Northrop GrummanElectronic Sensors and Systems Division (ESSD) and the ISR, to investigatethe epitaxial ...
Modeling and Reduction with Applications to Semiconductor Processing
This thesis consists of several somewhat distinct but connected parts, withan underlying motivation in problems pertaining to control and optimizationof semiconductor processing. The first part (Chapters 3 and 4) ...
Computing Balanced Realizations for Nonlinear Systems
This paper addresses the problem of computability pertaining to the Scherpen(1994) theory and procedure for balancing of nonlinear systems. In contrastto Moore's (1981) balancing method for linear systems, the Scherpen ...
Model Reduction via the Karhunen-Loeve Expansion Part I: An Exposition
In formulating mathematical models for dynamical systems, obtaining a high degree of qualitative correctness (i.e. predictive capability) may not be the only objective. The model must be useful for its intended application,and ...
Computation for Nonlinear Balancing
We illustrate a computational approach to practicalnonlinear balancing via the forced damped pendulum example.
