On the Nature of Modal Truth in Plans
Chapman's paper, "Planning for Conjunctive Goals", has been widely acknowledged as a major step towards understanding the nature of nonlinear planning, and it has been one of the bases of later work by others -- but it is ...
Toward an Analysis of Forward Pruning
Several early game-playing computer programs used forward pruning (i.e., the practice of deliberately ignoring nodes that are believed unlikely to affect a game tree's minimax value), but this technique did not seem to ...
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 ...
