[20150706] On Privilege

[20120424] On Robustness Analysis in the Control of Nonlinear Systems
This paper deals with the class of nonlinear systems described by the equation M(q(t))q(t) = f(t)  N(q(t),qÂ¿(t)) with f(t) a control input. We employ a simple method of control design which has two stages. First, a global ... 
[20140912] On Roots of the Macdonald Function
An overview is given for the DirichlettoNeumann map for outgoing solutions to the “radial wave equation” in the context of nonreflecting radiation boundary conditions on a spherical domain. We then consider the Macdonald ... 
[20091211] On sex allocation and selfing in higher plants
Sex allocation and selfing is studied in Asian wild rice. 
[20120413] On The Computational Complexity Of The Manufacturing Job Shop And Reentrant Flow Line
This paper presents a comparison study of the computational complexity of the general job shop protocol and the flow line protocol in a flexible manufacturing system. It is shown that a certain representative problem of ... 
[20060310] On the Computational Complexity of the Manufacturing Job Shop and Renetrant Flow Line
This paper presents a comparison study of the computational complexity of the general job shop protocol and the flow line protocol in a flexible manufacturing system. It is shown that a certain representative problem ... 
[20101013] On the Configuration of Sensors and Actuators on a Pioneer 3AT Robot Controlled through the Robotic Operating System ROS
We present a set of technical procedures to carry out experiments involving mobile robots. The hardware and software configuration to access the sensors and actuators in the robots usually turn out to be a relatively ... 
[20120412] On the control of a high power backwardwave oscillator using quantifier elimination methods
This paper presents an experimental/theoretical study of methods to identify and control a repetitivelypulsed high power microwave source. A neural network was used to model the system and quantifier elimination (QE) ... 
[20120412] On the design of nonfragile compensators via symbolic quantifier elimination
In this paper symbolic quantifier elimination methods are used to explore the fragility of feedback compensators, and to design feedback systems with nonfragile compensators. A compensator is said to be fragile if given ... 
[20150128] On the Equivalence Between the LRT, RLRT and Ftest for Testing Variance Components in the Generalized Splitplot Models
I study the equivalence between the Likelihood Ratio Test (LRT), Restricted Likelihood Ratio Test (RLRT) and the Ftest when testing variance components within the class of generalized splitplot (GSP) models. In this work, ... 
[20091116] On the evolution of host selection in solitary parasitoids

[20120426] ON THE FRAGILITY OF HIGHDIMENSIONAL CONTROLLERS
In this paper we study the fragility of controllers designed to optimize some performance indices. We trace the fragility problem to the dimension of the resulting controllers, and use results from highdimensional geometry ... 
[20060310] On the Grunbaum Commutor Based Discrete Fractional Fourier Transform
The basis functions of the continuous fractional Fourier transform (FRFT) are linear chirp signals that are suitable for timefrequency analysis of signals with chirping timefrequency content. In the continuoustime ... 
[20111107] On the Internal Border: Colonial Difference, the Cold War, and the Locations of “Underdevelopment”
In 1962, the recently established Peace Corps announced plans for an intensive field training initiative that would acclimate the agency’s burgeoning multitude of volunteers to the conditions of poverty in “underdeveloped” ... 
[20140703] On the Line: Living the US Mexico Border
This exhibit encourages a closer examination of the United StatesMexico Border giving particular attention to the individuals and communities that exist along the horizontal boundary. Very often, discussions of the Border ... 
[20090728] On the NonCreole Basis for AfroCaribbean Spanish
The claim has frequently been made by scholars that Africans in the Spanish Caribbean, deprived of the opportunity for learning the prevailing dialects of Spanish, developed a Spanishbased creole. The most ambitious ... 
[20150305] On the Proper User of Man and Machines

[20120426] On the Relative Degree of Simultaneously Stabilizing Controllers
In this brief paper 1 we present new necessary and sufficient conditions on the controller for the existence of a single controller to stabilize a set of n SISO plants: P1; P2; :::; Pn. As is well known this is equivalent ... 
[20120419] On the Robust Control of Uncertain Nonlinear Systems
In this paper we study the problem of controlling uncertain nonlinear systems. The uncertainty is considered to be dynamic and additive, and the nominal system is assumed to be feedbacklinearizable. It is shown that the ...
