[20120126] An Adaptive Coverage Control Algorithm for Deployment of Nonholonomic Mobile Sensors
We show the Lyapunov stability and convergence of an adaptive and decentralized coverage control for a team of mobile sensors. This new approach assumes nonholonomic sensors rather than the usual holonomic sensors found ... 
[20120407] Advances in the control of a “smart tube” high power backward wave oscillator
Previous accomplishments pertaining to the control of various parameters of an intense beamdriven relativistic backward wave oscillator (BWO) include maintaining a specified or desired output power over a determined ... 
[20120407] Advances in undergraduate control education: the analytical design approach
Introductory undergraduate control courses in the USA are generally limited to trialanderror design techniques, based largely on the Nyquist stability criterion and rootlocus analysis. The corresponding theory is well ... 
[20120412] Analytic Gain and Phase Margin Design
In 5, algorithms are presented for analytic gain and phase margin design. Without special care however, the compensator computed with this algorithm is not a real rational function. In 3, it is shown that with some care, ... 
[20120407] Analytic phase margin design
Doyle et al. (1992) presented an algorithm for analytic phase margin control design. Without special care, however, the compensator computed with this algorithm may not be a real rational function, The problem is evident ... 
[20120126] Analyzing capacitorbased reconfigurable antennas using graph models
This paper discusses reconfigurable antennas using variable capacitors or varactors to achieve reconfiguration. We propose graph models as tools to understand reconfigurable antenna topologies and their configurations. ... 
[20120330] Application of FiniteTime Stability Concepts to the Control of ATM Networks
When dealing with the stability of a system, a distinction should be made between classical Lyapunov Stability and FiniteTime Stability (FTS) (or ShortTime Stability). The concept of Lyapunov Asymptotic Stability is ... 
[20120416] An application of gradientlike dynamics to neural networks
This paper reviews a formalism that enables the dynamics of a broad class of neural networks to be understood. This formalism is then applied to a specific network and the predicted and simulated behavior of the system are ... 
[20120426] Application of Statistical Learning Control to the Design of a FixedOrder Controller for a Flexible Beam
This paper shows how probabilistic methods and statistical learning theory can provide approximate solutions to “difficult” control problems. The paper also introduces bootstrap learning methods to drastically reduce the ... 
[20120324] An Application of the Mobile Transient Internet Architecture to IP Mobility and InterOperability
We introduce an application of a mobile transient network architecture on top of the current Internet. This paper is an application extension to a conceptual mobile network architecture. It attempts to specifically reinforce ... 
[20120410] Automated BWO design using iterative learning control
Summary form only given, as follows. In our earlier works we reported on experimental results showing how finite length variations in a high power backward wave oscillator (BWO) will result in sinusoidal variations in both ... 
[20120323] BENFORD’S LAW IN IMAGE PROCESSING
We present a generalization of Benford’s law for the first significant digit. This generalization is based on keeping two terms of the Fourier expansion of the probability density function of the data in the modular ... 
[20120327] Bilateral Teleoperation of Mobile Robot over Delayed Communication Network: Implementation
In a previous paper we proposed a bilateral teleoperation framework of a wheeled mobile robot over communication channel with constant time delay. In this paper we present experimental results. Our goal is to illustrate ... 
[20120406] Bounded control of multipledelay systems with applications to ATM networks
Congestion control in the available bit rate (ABR) class of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks poses interesting challenges due to the presence of multipledelays, magnitude and rate constraints on the inputs and ... 
[20120329] Bounded controller design of an ABR explicit rate algorithm for ATM switches
Browse > Conferences> Decision and Control, 2003. Pr ... Bounded controller design of an ABR explicit rate algorithm for ATM switches .1273000 abstract . Tarbouriech, S.; Ariola, A.; Abdallah, C.T.; CNRS, ... 
[20120413] Bounding the Errors in Constructive Function Approximation
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 ... 
[20120413] Bounding the frequency response for digital transfer functions: results and applications
This paper introduces robust stability techniques for the computation of exact bounds for the frequency response of FIR and IIR digital filters in which the l∞ norm of the coefficients is bounded. 
[20120329] Closedloop load balancing: Comparison of a discrete event simulation with experiments
Load balancing for parallel computations is modeled as a deterministic dynamic nonlinear timedelay system. This model accounts for the tradeoff between using processor time/network bandwidth and the advantage of distributing ... 
[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 ...
