State-Space Search, Problem Reduction, and Iterative Deepening: A Comparative Analysis
In previous work, Korf showed that by introducing one problem- reduction step into a state- space search, one could reduce the number of node generations from 0 ((2b)2d ) to 0 (bd ), where b and d are the branching factor ...
Recognition of Volumetric Features from CAD Models: Problem Formalization and Algorithms
Automated recognition of features from CAD models has been attempted for a wide range of application domains in mechanical engineering. However, the absence of a clear mathematical formalism for the problem has made it ...
Adaptive Control of Nonlinear Systems with Applications to Flight Control Systems and Suspension Dynamics
In this dissertation, we employ recent theoretical advances in differential geometric formulation of nonlinear control theory and adaptive control to develop a practical adaptive nonlinear control strategy.<P>We first ...
