Markov Chain Approximations for Deterministic Control Problems with Affine Dynamics and Quadratic Cost in the Control
 SIAM J. Numer. Anal
, 1998
"... We consider the construction of Markov chain approximations for an important class of deterministic control problems. The emphasis is on the construction of schemes that can be easily implemented and which possess a number of highly desirable qualitative properties. The class of problems covered is ..."

New results in linear filtering and prediction theory
 TRANS. ASME, SER. D, J. BASIC ENG
, 1961
"... A nonlinear differential equation of the Riccati type is derived for the covariance matrix of the optimal filtering error. The solution of this "variance equation " completely specifies the optimal filter for either finite or infinite smoothing intervals and stationary or nonstationary sta ..."

in this field. The Duality Principle relating stochastic estimation and deterministic control problems plays an important role in the proof of theoretical results. In several examples, the estimation problem and its dual are discussed sidebyside. Properties of the variance equation are of great interest
Mathematical Control Theory: Deterministic Finite Dimensional Systems
 of Texts in Applied Mathematics
, 1990
"... The title of this book gives a very good description of its contents and style, although I might have added “Introduction to ” at the beginning. The style is mathematical: precise, clear statements (i.e., theorems) are asserted, then carefully proved. The book covers many of the key topics in contro ..."

Separation of ownership and control
 JOURNAL OF LAW AND ECONOMICS
, 1983
"... This paper analyzes the survival of organizations in which decision agents do not bear a major share of the wealth effects of their decisions. This is what the literature on large corporations calls separation of âownershipâ and âcontrol.â Such separation of decision and risk bearing functio ..."

because of an effective common approach to controlling the implied agency problems. In particular, the contract structures of all these organizations separate the ratification and monitoring of decisions from the initiation and implementation of the decisions.
The Nonstochastic Multiarmed Bandit Problem
 SIAM JOURNAL OF COMPUTING
, 2002
"... In the multiarmed bandit problem, a gambler must decide which arm of K nonidentical slot machines to play in a sequence of trials so as to maximize his reward. This classical problem has received much attention because of the simple model it provides of the tradeoff between exploration (trying out ..."

of the process generating the payoffs of the slot machines. We give a solution to the bandit problem in which an adversary, rather than a wellbehaved stochastic process, has complete control over the payoffs. In a sequence of T plays, we prove that the perround payoff of our algorithm approaches
How To Prove Yourself: Practical Solutions to Identification and Signature Problems
, 1987
"... In this paper we describe simple identification and signature schemes which enable any user to prove his identity and the authenticity of his messages to any other user without shared or public keys. The schemes are provably secure against any known or chosen message attack ff factoring is difficult ..."

is difficult, and typical implementations require only 1% to 4% of the number of modular multiplications required by the RSA scheme. Due to their simplicity, security and speed, these schemes are ideally suited for microprocessorbased devices such as smart cards, personal computers, and remote control system.q.
Consensus Problems in Networks of Agents with Switching Topology and TimeDelays
, 2003
"... In this paper, we discuss consensus problems for a network of dynamic agents with fixed and switching topologies. We analyze three cases: i) networks with switching topology and no timedelays, ii) networks with fixed topology and communication timedelays, and iii) maxconsensus problems (or leader ..."

in convergence analysis of consensus protocols. A distinctive feature of this work is to address consensus problems for networks with directed information flow. We provide analytical tools that rely on algebraic graph theory, matrix theory, and control theory. Simulations are provided that demonstrate
Constrained model predictive control: Stability and optimality
 AUTOMATICA
, 2000
"... Model predictive control is a form of control in which the current control action is obtained by solving, at each sampling instant, a finite horizon openloop optimal control problem, using the current state of the plant as the initial state; the optimization yields an optimal control sequence and t ..."

Optimization Flow Control, I: Basic Algorithm and Convergence
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
