[20120426] The InterMesh Network ArchitectureDemo Proposal
There is an indispensable need for internetworking of WPAN, WLAN, WMAN and cellularbased wireless mesh networks. Currently, the Internet protocol (IP) is employed to provide this functionality at the network layer. ... 
[20120426] Support Vector Machines for Direction of Arrival Estimation
Machine learning research has largely been devoted to binary and multiclass problems relating to data mining, text categorization, and pattern/facial recognition. Recently, popular machine learning algorithms have successfully ... 
[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 ... 
[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 ... 
[20120426] Performance of Game Theoretic Power Control Algorithms forWireless Data in Fast Flat Fading Channels
We consider a gametheoretic power control algorithm for wireless data realistic channels. We study the performance of the algorithm for wireless data in the fast, flatfading channel mobile users encounter in accessing ... 
[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 ... 
[20120426] An Overview of QuasiMonte Carlo Methods in Control Systems
Many control problems are so complex that analytic techniques fail to solve them [2]. Furthermore, even when analytic solutions are available, they may be computationally costly [2] and generally result in very highorder ... 
[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 ... 
[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 ... 
[20120426] Witsenhausen’s counterexample and its links with multimedia security problems
Witsenhausen’s counterexample was proposed more than four decades ago in order to show that affine control strategies are not optimal for systems with nonclassical information patterns. Finding the optimal solution to ... 
[20120424] Los Libertadores: Science and Technology Education in Latin America
The world has become dependent on information, technology, and telecommunications. Better known as Information Technology and Telecommunications (IT), a term that encompasses the fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering ... 
[20120424] A temperature compensated Lband hybrid SAW oscillator and resonator filter
A 950 MHz subminiature temperature compensated SAW resonator oscillator (TCSO) and a SAW resonator filter are developed in hybrid form for application as local oscillator and bandpass filter f o r a communication system. ... 
[20120424] A Routhlike algorithm in system identification and adaptive control
This paper introduces algorithms to be used for finding the Cauchy index of a transfer function and for solving the Diophantine equation. The algorithms are similar to the RouthHurwitz array in structure and are simple ... 
[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 ... 
[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.
