Metabolic stability and epigenesis in randomly connected nets
 Journal of Theoretical Biology
, 1969
"... “The world is either the effect of cause or chance. If the latter, it is a world for all that, that is to say, it is a regular and beautiful structure.” Marcus Aurelius Protoorganisms probably were randomly aggregated nets of chemical reactions. The hypothesis that contemporary organisms are also r ..."

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 ..."

The particle swarm is an algorithm for finding optimal regions of complex search spaces through interaction of individuals in a population of particles. Though the algorithm, which is based on a metaphor of social interaction, has been shown to perform well, researchers have not adequately explained how it works. Further, traditional versions of the algorithm have had some dynamical properties that were not considered to be desirable, notably the particles’ velocities needed to be limited in order to control their trajectories. The present paper analyzes the particle’s trajectory as it moves in discrete time (the algebraic view), then progresses to the view of it in continuous time (the analytical view). A 5dimensional depiction is developed, which completely describes the system. These analyses lead to a generalized model of the algorithm, containing a set of coefficients to control the system’s convergence tendencies. Some results of the particle swarm optimizer, implementing modifications derived from the analysis, suggest methods for altering the original algorithm in ways that eliminate problems and increase the optimization power of the particle swarm
Stability properties of constrained queueing systems and scheduling policies for maximum throughput in multihop radio networks
 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control
, 1992
"... AbstructThe stability of a queueing network with interdependent servers is considered. The dependency of servers is described by the definition of their subsets that can be activated simultaneously. Multihop packet radio networks (PRN’s) provide a motivation for the consideration of this system. We ..."

. We study the problem of scheduling the server activation under the constraints imposed by the dependency among them. The performance criterion of a scheduling policy m is its throughput that is characterized by its stability region C,, that is, the set of vectors of arrival rates for which the system
Taming the Underlying Challenges of Reliable Multihop Routing in Sensor Networks

The dynamic and lossy nature of wireless communication poses major challenges to reliable, selforganizing multihop networks. These nonideal characteristics are more problematic with the primitive, lowpower radio transceivers found in sensor networks, and raise new issues that routing protocols must address. Link connectivity statistics should be captured dynamically through an efficient yet adaptive link estimator and routing decisions should exploit such connectivity statistics to achieve reliability. Link status and routing information must be maintained in a neighborhood table with constant space regardless of cell density. We study and evaluate link estimator, neighborhood table management, and reliable routing protocol techniques. We focus on a manytoone, periodic data collection workload. We narrow the design space through evaluations on largescale, highlevel simulations to 50node, indepth empirical experiments. The most effective solution uses a simple time averaged EWMA estimator, frequency based table management, and costbased routing.
Smooth Stabilization Implies Coprime Factorization
, 1989
"... This paper shows that coprime right factorizations exist for the input to state mapping of a continuous time nonlinear system provided that the smooth feedback stabilization problem be solvable for this system. In particular, it follows that feedback linearizable systems admit such factorizations. I ..."

. In order to establish the result a Lyapunovtheoretic definition is proposed for "bounded input bounded output" stability. The main technical fact proved relates the notion of stabilizability studied in the state space nonlinear control literature to a notion of stability under bounded control
Design of capacityapproaching irregular lowdensity paritycheck codes
 IEEE TRANS. INFORM. THEORY
, 2001
"... We design lowdensity paritycheck (LDPC) codes that perform at rates extremely close to the Shannon capacity. The codes are built from highly irregular bipartite graphs with carefully chosen degree patterns on both sides. Our theoretical analysis of the codes is based on [1]. Assuming that the unde ..."

Using this symmetry property we then show that, under the assumption of no cycles, the message densities always converge as the number of iterations tends
