[20120413] Common, multiple and parametric Lyapunov functions for a class of hybrid dynamical systems
This paper considers Lyapunov stability of discontinuous dynamical systems. It is assumed that discontinuities in the system dynamics are caused by some internal (e.g. component failures), and/or external (e.g. controller ... 
[20120329] Communicating with microwavepropelled sails
We describe a communication channel for a microwavepropelled sail, a novel concept for a deepspace scientific probe. We suggest techniques to recover the great loss introduced by the large distances, and we have conducted ... 
[20120324] Complex Networked Control Systems
This special section focuses on the study of network architectures and their formation as well as on the description of dynamical processes that take place over networks. A common thread throughout the five articles is the ... 
[20120406] Computational complexity of determining resource loops in reentrant flow lines
This paper presents a comparison study of the computational complexity of the general job shop protocol and the more structured flow line protocol in a flexible manufacturing system. It is shown that the representative ... 
[20120320] Conditions for tracking in networked control systems
In this paper we obtain information theoretical conditions for tracking in linear timeinvariant control systems. We consider the particular case where the closed loop contains a channel in the feedback loop. The mutual ... 
[20120412] Constructive function approximation: theory and practice
In this paper we study the theoretical limits of finite constructive convex approximations of a given function in a Hilbert space using elements taken from a reduced subset. We also investigate the tradeoff between the ... 
[20120412] CONTINUOUS AND DISCRETE TIME SPR DESIGN USING FEEDBACK
This paper presents necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a feedback compensator that will render a given continuoustime or discretetime linear system SPR. When these conditions hold, the controller ... 
[20120126] Control in Computing Systems: Part I
This is the first part of a paper that provides an overview of some applications of control theory to computing systems. With the advent of cloud computing and more affordable computing infrastructures, computing engineers ... 
[20120126] A control theory approach on the design of a Marx generator network
A Marx generator is a wellknown type of electrical circuit first described by Erwin Otto Marx in 1924. It has been utilized in numerous applications in pulsed power with resistive or capacitive loads. Todate the vast ... 
[20120426] Coordination of Multiple Agents in 2D using an InternetLike Protocol
This work presents an InternetLike Protocol (ILP) to coordinate the formation of n secondorder agents in a two dimensional (2D) space. The trajectories are specified trough via points and a desired formation at each ... 
[20120324] Creating Online Graduate Engineering Degrees at the University of New Mexico
This paper describes the motivation, strategies, and implementation details that lead to the creation of online graduatelevel degree programs in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of New ... 
[20060310] Data Pulse Design  Realizability Considerations

[20120324] Data Rates Conditions for Network Control System Stabilization
In this paper we present sufficient conditions on the rate of a packet network to guarantee asymptotic stability of unstable discrete LTI system with linear state feedback control. Two types of network control systems are ... 
[20120407] Delay effects on static output feedback stabilization
This paper addresses conditions for characterizing static output feedback controllers including delays for some proper (finitedimensional) transfer functions. The interest of such study is in controlling systems which can ... 
[20120419] Delayed positive feedback can stabilize oscillatory systems
This paper expands on a method proposed in [1] for stabilizing oscillatory system with positive, delayed feedback. The closedloop system obtained is shown (using the Nyquist criterion) to be stable for a range of delays. 
[20120419] Design of strictly positive real, fixedorder dynamic compensators
The authors present sufficient conditions for the design of strictly positive real (SPR), fixedorder dynamic compensators. The primary motivation for designing SPR compensators is for application to positive real (PR) ...
