Learning with the Adaptive Time-Delay Neural Network
The Adaptive Time-delay Neural Network (AT N N), a paradigm for training a nonlinear neural network with adaptive time-delays, is described. Both time delays and connection weights are adapted on-line according to a gradient ...
Stability and Robust Control of Period Doubling Bifurcations
This thesis addresses the stability and feedback control of period doubling bifurcations. We find formulas for determining the stability of nondegenerate and degenerate period doubling bifurcations. Specifically, we find ...
An Efficient Algorithm for the Automatic Enumeration of the Topological Structures of Mechanisms
In this paper, a new algorithm for the automatic enumeration of the topological structures of mechanisms is developed. The algorithm permits the deviation of conventional graphs from contracted graphs by the partition of ...
An Improved Model for the Dynamics of Spur Gear Systems with Backlash Consideration
An improved model which accounts for backlash effects is proposed for the dynamics of spur gear systems. This dynamic model is mainly developed for the purpose of real time control. The complicated variation of the meshing ...
Optimal Control and Poisson Reduction
In this paper we make explicit a reduction of G-invariant optimal control problems on a Lie group G.
Enumeration and Automatic Sketching of Epicyclic-Type Automatic Transmission Gear Trains
The automotive transmission maintains a proper equilibrium between the power and torque produced by the engine and those demanded by the drive wheels. Most automatic transmissions employ some kind of epicyclic gear mechanisms ...
Smart Structures and Wavelet Based System Identification
In this thesis we study the problem of modeling and control of vibrations of a flexible structure. Different approaches have been considered for fitting a finite dimensional model to the infinite dimensional system. In ...
The Inverse Conductivity Problem and the Hyperbolic X-Ray Transform
It is shown here how the approximate inversion algorithm of Barber & Brown for the linearized inverse conductivity problem in the disk can be interpreted exactly in terms of the X-ray transform with respect to the Poincare ...
A Simple quadratically convergent Interior Point Algorithm for Linear Programming and Convex quadratic Programming
An algorithm for linear programming (LP) and convex quadratic programming (CQP) is proposed, based on an interior point iteration introduced more than ten years ago by J. Herskovits for the solution of nonlinear programming ...
Systematic Methodologies for the Automatic Enumeration of the Topological Structures of Mechanisms
This thesis proposes new algorithms for the enumeration of the topological structure of mechanisms. The definitions of dual graph and dual of a contracted graph are modified to provide a one-to-one correspondence between ...
