[20120419] Feasibility analysis of channel equalizers using Kharitonovtype results
Necessary and sufficient conditions for determining the robust location of the roots of a family of polynomials are presented. This family appears when multipath fading channels are considered due to the uncertainty in the ... 
[20120413] Filter design to guarantee convergence of the pseudolinear regression IIR adaptive algorithm
In this paper we design a finite impulse response (FIR) filter to enforce the socalled strictly positive realness (SPR) condition in an adaptive infinite impulse response (IIR) filtering context. The paper results may ...

[20120327] Finite time stability design via feedback linearization
A new nonlinear design technique for FiniteTime Stability for a class of nonlinear systems is developed using feedback linearization. Moreover, a new concept, namely the FiniteTime Contractive Stability with fixed settling ... 
[20120407] Finitetime control for uncertain linear systems with disturbance inputs
We consider the static output feedback, finitetime disturbance rejection problem for linear systems with timevarying normbounded uncertainties. The first result provided in the paper is a sufficient condition for ... 
[20120426] FiniteTime Control of Uncertain Linear Systems Using Statistical Learning Methods
In this paper we show how some difficult linear algebra problems can be “approximately” solved using statistical learning methods. We illustrate our results by considering the state and output feedback, finitetime robust ... 
[20120329] Finitetime stability of discretetime nonlinear systems: analysis and design
Finitetime stability of nonlinear discretetime systems is studied. Some new analysis results are developed and applied to controller design. 
[20120416] General Neural Networks Dynamics are a Superposition of Gradientlike and Hamiltonianlike Systems
This report presents a formalism that enables the dynamics of a broad class of neural networks to be understood. A number of previous works have analyzed the Lyapunov stability of neural network models. This type of ... 
[20120413] Gradient and Hamiltonian dynamics applied to learning in neural networks
The process of machine learning can be considered in two stages model selection and parameter estimation. In this paper a technique is presented for constructing dynamical systems with desired qualitative properties. The ... 
[20120419] Gradientlike dynamics in neural networks
This report presents a formalism that enables the dynamics of a broad class of neural networks to be understood. A number of previous works have analyzed the Lyapunov stability of neural network models. This type of ... 
[20120407] Guaranteedcost control of polynomial nonlinear systems
This paper deals with the control of polynomial nonlinear systems which are affine in the control. We use Bernstein polynomials and polytopic linear differential inclusion (PLDI) to design gainscheduled controllers using ... 
[20120407] Guaranteedcost control of the nonlinear benchmark problem using modelbased fuzzy systems
We design a statefeedback controller for the nonlinear benchmark problem. Our approach relies on the use of TakagiSugeno fuzzy models to approximate the nonlinear system. Once the fuzzy model is obtained, we develop a ... 
[20120324] HSIP InterDomain SIP Mobility: Design
Supporting mobility in IP networks is a crucial step towards satisfying the nomadic communication paradigms on the current Internet. The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) presents one approach towards supporting IP mobility ...
