Stable Behavior and Stabilizing Supervisor for Discrete Event Dynamical Systems
The paper studies stability and stabilizability of Discrete event Dynamical Systems (DEDS's) in the framework of Ramadge and Wonham. We define stability and stabilizability in terms of the behavior of the DEDS's, i.e. the ...
Discrete-Time Controlled Markov Processes with Average Cost Criterion: A Survey
This work is a survey of the average cost control problem for discrete-time Markov processes. We have attempted to put together a comprehensive account of the considerable research on this problem over the past three ...
Optimal Control of Switching Diffusions with Application to Flexible Manufacturing Systems
A Controlled switching diffusion model is developed to study the hierarchical control of flexible manufacturing systems. The existence of a homogeneous Markov nonrandomized optimal policy is established by a convex analytic ...
Predicates and Predicate Transformers for Supervisory Control of Discrete Event Dynamical Systems
Most discrete event system models are based on defining the alphabet set or the set of events as a fundamental concept. In this paper, we take an alternative view of treating the state space as the fundamental concept. We ...
Analysis of an Adaptive Control Scheme for a Partially Observed Controlled Markov Chain
We consider an adaptive finite state controlled Markov chain with partial state information, motivated by a class of replacement problems. We present parameter estimation techniques based on the information available after ...
