User's Guide for FSQP Version 3.0c: A FORTRAN Code for Solving Constrained Nonlinear (Minimax) Optimization Problems, Generating Iterates Satisfying All Inequality and Linear Constraints
FSQP 3.0c is a set of FORTRAN subroutines for the minimization of the maximum of a set of smooth objective functions (possibly a single one) subject to general smooth constraints. If the initial guess provided by the user ...
Fast, Globally Convergent Optimization Algorithms, with Application to Engineering System Design
Complex engineering system design usually involves multiple objective specifications. Tradeoffs have to be made among these specifications, possibly under constraints, as they oftentimes compete with one another. It has ...
Optimal Estimation of Domains of Attraction for Nonlinear Dynamical Systems
This thesis implements a recently proposed algebraic methodology for optimal domain of attraction estimation, and extends the method to include optimal estimation of the largest inscribed ball. In addition, a numerical ...
Affine Frames of Rational Wavelets in H2 (II+)
In this paper we investigate frame decompositions of H2(II+) as a method of constructing rational approximations to nonrational transfer functions in H2(II+). The frames of interest are generated from a single analyzing ...
Wavelets and Time-Frequency Methods in Linear Systems and Neural Networks
In the first of this dissertation we consider the problem of rational approximation and identification of stable linear systems. Affine wavelet decompositions of the Hardy space H2 (II+), are developed as a means of ...
Adaptive Friction Compensation for Bi-Directional Low-Velocity Position Tracking
This paper presents a comparative investigation of friction- compensating control strategies designed to improve low-velocity position tracking performance in the presence of velocity reversals for servomechanisms. The ...
