[20120329] QuasiMonte Carlo methods in robust control design
Many practical control problems are so complex that traditional analysis and design methods fail to solve. Consequently, sampling methods that provide approximate solutions to such difficult problems have emerged. In this ... 
[20120131] Quo Vadis? Public Colleges and Their Funding
This paper reviews the current debate about the motivation, adequacy and distribution of funding for public colleges. Although the debate has been ongoing for some time, it has become especially heated in recent years due ... 
[20120324] Randomized Algorithms for Analysis and Control of Uncertain Systems[Book review; R. Tempo, G. Calafiore, and F. Dabbene]
This is the first book that fully covers both randomized algorithms and robust control design. Some of the major topics covered include: a review of probability theory; the robust control problem; computational complexity; ... 
[20120407] A Randomized approach to the H2/H∞ Control Problem via Qparameterization
We show that the mixed H2/H∞ control problem can be efficiently solved using randomized algorithms. Qparameterization provides a mechanism to search over all stabilizing controllers, and thus gives us the ability to search ... 
[20120324] RateLimited Stabilization for Network Control Systems
In this paper, we extend results from packetbased control theory, and present sufficient conditions on the rate of a packet network to guarantee asymptotic stability of unstable discrete LTI system, with less inputs than ... 
[20120330] Realtime streaming over an IEEE 802.11 b based wireless LAN test bed
Wireless LAN systems based on IEEE 802.11 (see http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/11) have become a pathbreaking innovation and have revolutionized the home, educational and office network markets (Kapp, S., IEEE Internet ... 
[20120327] Recent Advances on Linear Control Theory under Communication Constraints: A Survey
Recent developments in networked control systems have focused on the issue of communications constraints. In this paper, we summarize the main results for stabilization and performance of networked control systems from an ...

[20120424] The recursive neural network
This paper describes a special type of dynamic neural network called the Recursive Neural Network (RNN). The RNN is a singleinput singleoutput nonlinear dynamical system with three subnets, a nonrecursive subnet and two ... 
[20120419] Recursive neural networks for signal processing and control
The authors describe a special type of dynamic neural network called the recursive neural network (RNN). The RNN is a singleinput singleoutput nonlinear dynamical system with a nonrecursive subnet and two recursive subnets ... 
[20120126] Reducing complexity and improving the reliability of frequency reconfigurable antennas
In this paper the complexity and reliability of frequency reconfigurable antennas are presented. A new approach for decreasing the complexity of reconfigurable antennas while maintaining the reliability of such structures ... 
[20120126] Reducing Redundancies in Reconfigurable Antenna Structures Using Graph Models
We present an approach for reducing redundancies in the design of reconfigurable antenna structures using graph models. The basics of graph models, their rules, and how they can be applied in the design of switchbased ... 
[20120412] A Reduction in Conservatism for Convex LinearQuadratic Simultaneous Performance Design
In this paper a fixed state feedback control law which minimizes upper bounds on linearquadratic performance measures for m distinct plants is studied. Previous work [8] by the authors demonstrated a convex semidefinite ... 
[20120320] ResourceConstrained Load Balancing Controller for a Parallel Database
This brief documents experimental results using a deterministic dynamic nonlinear system for load balancing, previously reported by Tang et al. in a cluster of computer nodes used for parallel computations in the presence ... 
[20120327] Resourceconstrained load balancing controller for a parallel database
The critical features of the load balancing problem are the delayed receipt of information and transferred load. Load distribution and task processing contend for the same resources on each computational element. This paper ... 
[20120323] Responsive Algorithms for Defending Recon gurable Networks
We present algorithms to selfheal reconfigurable networks when they are under attack. These algorithms reconfigure the network during attack to protect two critical invariants. First, they insure that the network remains ... 
[20120424] Robust adaptive control for a class of partially known nonlinear systems
An adaptive controller is developed that takes advantage of the structure and any known dynamics of the system in order to increase speed of adaptation and relax the conditions required for convergence. The control design ... 
[20120424] Robust control of accelerators
The problem of controlling tile variations in the rf power system can be effectively cast as an application of modern control theory. Two components of this theory are obtaining a model and a feedback structure. The model ... 
[20120424] Robust Control of Particle Accelerators
Abstract In this paper, we present a new technique for controlling the electric fields of an electron particle accelerator. This new scheme has greater stability and performance robustness than was previously achieved. 
[20120412] Robust finitetime stability design via linear matrix inequalities
For linear systems with polytopic uncertainties, the problem of robust finitetime stabilization is reduced to a system of Linear Matric Inequalities.
