Non-Smooth Robust Stabilization of a Family of Linear Systems in the Plane
In this paper, we use merely continuous feedback to robustly stabilize a class of parameterized family of linear systems in the plane. We introduce a new interpolation method that enables us to construct a robust stabilizer ...
A Wavelet Approach to Wafer Temperature Measurement via Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy
A methodology for the determination of wafer temperature in Molecular Beam Epitaxy via diffuse reflectance measurements is developed. Approximate physical principles are not used, instead, patterns in the data (reflectance ...
The Hybrid Motor Prototype: Design Details and Demonstration Results
A novel hybrid rotary motor incorporating piezoelectric and magnetostrictive actuators has been designed and demonstrated. The novelty of this motor was the creation of an electrical resonant circuit, whereby reactive power ...
Time-Varying simultaneous stabilization, Part II. Finite families of nonlinear systems
In this paper, we derive sufficient conditions for the existence of a continuous time-varying feedback law that simultaneously locally or globally asymptotically stabilizes a finite family of nonlinear systems. We then ...
Non-Smooth Simultaneous Stabilization of Nonlinear Systems: Interpolation of Feedback Laws
In this paper, we introduce a method that enables us to construct a continuous simultaneous stabilizer for pairs of systems in the plane that cannot be simultaneously stabilized by smooth feedback. We extend this method ...
H∞ Control for Impulsive Disturbances: A State-Space Solution
In this paper we formulate and study an interesting (sub) optimal H∞ control problem related to the attenuation of impulsive disturbances to a class of linear systems. Among the motivating factors is the need to study ...
