    Maintaining a Directed, Triangular Formation of Mobile Autonomous Agents

    This paper analyzes a class of distributed control laws which encompasses and generalizes three previously considered types of control laws for maintaining a triangular formation in the plane consisting of three point-modeled, mobile autonomous agents. It is shown that the control laws considered can cause any initially non-collinear, positively-oriented {resp....

    A Novel Information Transmission Problem and its Optimal Solution

    The authors propose and study a new information transmission problem motivated by today's internet. Suppose a real number needs to be transmitted in a network. This real number may represent data or control and pricing information of the network. They propose a new transmission model in which the real number...

    Theory and Algorithms for the Haplotype Assembly Problem

    The authors propose and study a new information transmission problem motivated by today's internet. Suppose a real number needs to be transmitted in a network. This real number may represent data or control and pricing information of the network. They propose a new transmission model in which the real number...

    New Algorithms in Real Time Solution of the Nonlinear Filtering Problem

    It is well known that the filtering theory has important applications in both military and commercial industries. The Kalman - Bucy filter has been used in many areas such as navigational and guidance systems, radar tracking, solar mapping, and satellite orbit determination. However, the Kalman - Bucy filter has limited...

    Observers in Language-Based Control

    This work discusses the construction of an observer for language-driven control systems. Such systems accept symbolic inputs corresponding to feedback control laws together with logical conditions which determine when each control law is to be applied. Here, the authors explore the problem of how to identify the symbolic string driving...

    Nonparametric Methods For Employment Termination Times With Competing Causes

    Models for failure times describe either the survivor function or hazard rate and their dependence on explanatory variables. This paper examines, the question of whether older employees are fired by a certain company more often than their younger colleagues is investigated for providing evidence in a legal claim. Such cases...

    Motion Description Language-Based Topological Maps for Robot Navigation

    Robot navigation over large areas inevitably has to rely on maps of the environment. The standard manner in which such maps are defined is through geometry, e.g. through traversability grid maps or through a division of the environment into free-space and obstacle-space. In this paper, the authors combine certain aspects...

    A Model Reference Adaptive Search Method for Stochastic Global Optimization

    The authors propose a randomized search method called Stochastic Model Reference Adaptive Search (SMRAS) for solving stochastic optimization problems in situations where the objective functions cannot be evaluated exactly, but can be estimated with some noise (or uncertainty), e.g., via simulation. The method generalizes the recently proposed Model Reference Adaptive...

    An Optimal Distributed Routing Algorithm using Dual Decomposition Techniques

    The authors consider the routing problem in wireline, packet-switched communication networks. They cast their optimal routing problem in a multicommodity network flow optimization framework. Their cost function is related to the congestion in the network, and is a function of the flows on the links of the network. The optimization...
