Detection of abrupt changes in dynamic systems by Alan S Willsky( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents some of the basic ideas associated with the detection of abrupt changes in dynamic systems. The author's presentation focuses on two classes of methods -- multiple filter-based techniques and residual-based methods -- and in far more detail on the multiple model and generalized likelihood ratio methods. Issues such as the effect of unknown onset time on algorithm complexity and structure and robustness to model uncertainty are discussed. (Author)

Kalman filtering and Riccati equations for descriptor systems by Ramine Nikoukhah( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we consider a general formulation of a discrete-time filtering problem for descriptor systems. It is shown that the nature of descriptor systems leads directly to the need to examine singular estimation problems. Using a "dual approach" to estimation we derive a so-called "3-block" form for the optimal filter and a corresponding 3-block Riccati equation for a general class of time-varying descriptor models which need not represent a well-posed system in that the dynamics may be either over- or under-constrained. Specializing to the time-invariant case we examine the asymptotic properties of the 3-block filter, and in particular analyze in detail the resulting 3-block algebraic Riccati equation, generalizing significantly the results in [23, 28, 33]. Finally, the noncausal nature of discrete-time descriptor dynamics implies that future dynamics may provide some information about the present state. We present a modified form for the descriptor Kalman filter that takes this information into account

Multiscale system theory by Albert Benveniste( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many applications, it is of interest to analyze and recognize phenomena occurring at different scales. The recently introduced wavelet transforms provide a time-and-scale decomposition of signals that offers the possibility of such an analysis. Until recently, however, there has been no corresponding statistical framework to support the development of optimal, multiscale statistical signal processing algorithms. A recent work of some of the present authors and co-authors proposed such a framework via models of "stochastic fractals" on the dyadic tree. In this paper we investigate some of the fundamental issues that are relevant to system theories on the dyadic tree, both for systems and signals

Aggregation and multi-level control in discrete event dynamic systems by Cüneyt M Özveren( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we consider the problem of higher-level aggregate modelling and control of discrete-event dynamic systems (DEDS) modelled as finite state automata in which some events are controllable, some are observed, and some represent events to be tracked. The higher-level models considered correspond to associating specified sequences of events in the original system to single macroscopic events in the higher- level model. We also consider the problem of designing a compensator that can be used to restrict microscopic behavior so that the system will only produce strings of these primitive sequences or tasks. With this lower level control in place we can construct higher-level models which typically have many fewer states and events than the original system. Also, motivated by applications such as flexible manufacturing, we address the problem of constructing and controlling higher-level models of interconnections of DEDS. This allows us to "slow down" the combinatorial explosion typically present in computations involving interacting automata
Multi-scale autoregressive processes by M Basseville( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many applications (e.g. recognition of geophysical and biomedical signals and multiscale analysis of images), it is of interest to analyze and recognize phenomena occuring at different scales The recently introduced wavelet trans- forms provide a time-and-scale decomposition of signals that offers the possibil- ity of such analysis. At present, however, there is no corresponding statistical framework to support the development of optimal, multiscale statistical sig- nal processing algorithms. In this paper we describe such a framework. The theory of multiscale signal representations leads naturally to models of signals on trees, and this provides the framework for our investigation. In particular, in this paper we describe the class of isotropic processes on homogenous trees and develop a theory of autoregressive models in this context. This leads to generalizations of Schur and Levinson recursions, associated properties of the resulting reflection coefficients, and the initial pieces in a system theory for multiscale modeling
Output stabilizability of discrete event dynamic systems by Cüneyt M Özveren( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we investigate the problem of designing stabilizing feedback compensators for Discrete Event Dynamic Systems (DEDS). The DEDS model used is a finite-state automaton in which some transition events are controllable and some events are observed. The problem of output stabilization is defined as the construction of a compensator such that the closed loop system is stable, in the sense that all state trajectories go through a given set E infinitely often. We define a stronger notion of output stabilizability which requires that we also have perfect knowledge of the state in E through which the trajectory passes on each of its visits to E. Necessary and sufficient conditions are presented for both notions. The complexity of these tests is polynomial in the cardinality of the state space of the observer. A number of sufficient conditions for the weaker notion are also presented. Corresponding tests for these sufficient conditions are shown to be polynomial in the cardinality of the state space of the system. Finally, a problem of resilient output stabilizability is addressed
Stability, stochastic stationarity and generalized Lyapunov equations for two-point boundary-value descriptor systems by Ramine Nikoukhah( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper introduces the concept of internal stability for two-point boundary-value descriptor systems (TPBVDSs). Since TPBVDSs are defined only over a finite interval, the concept of stability is not easy to formulate for these systems. The definition which is used here consists in requiring that as the length of the interval of definition increases, the effect of boundary conditions on states located close to the center of the interval should go to zero. Stochastic TPBVDSs are studied, and the property of stochastic stationarity is characterized in terms of a generalized Lyapunov equation satisfied by the variance of the boundary vector. A second generalized Lyapunov equation satisfied by state variance of a stochastically stationary TPBVDS is also introduced, and the existence and uniqueness of positive definite solutions to this equation is then used to characterize the property of internal stability. Keywords: Stability, Two-point boundary value problems. (hde)

This report summarizes accomplishments in the research program presently supported by Grant AFOSR-82-0258 over a period from July 1, 1982 to Sept. 30, 1987, with primary emphasis on the accomplishments from July 1, 1986 to Sept 30, 1987. The basic scope of this program is the analysis, estimation, and control of complex systems with particular emphasis on the development of asymptotic methods and theories for nearly singular systems the investigation of theoretical questions related to singular systems and the analysis of complex systems subject to our characterized by sequences of discrete events. These three topics are described in the three sections of this report. Keywords: Algorithms; Estimates; Detection
A realization theory for two-point boundary-value descriptor systems = Une theorie de realisation deterministe pour les systemes implicites aux deux bouts by Ramine Nikoukhah( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "In this paper, we develop a realization theory for a class of two-point boundary-value descriptor systems (TPBBVS's). Specifically, we consider the class of systems that are extendible, i.e. systems for which the input-output map (weighting pattern) can be extended outwards indefinitely, and stationary for which the weighting pattern is shift-invariant. The particular realization problem considered consists of constructing a minimal TPBVDS that realizes a given extendible, stationary weighting pattern. In our study, we develop an original transform method, better adapted than the z-transform method to descriptor dynamics because of the symmetrical way that it handles the zero and the infinite frequencies
Asymptotic Orders of Reachability in Perturbed Linear Systems by Cüneyt M Özveren( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A framework for studying asymptotic orders of reachability in perturbed linear. time-invariant systems is developed. The systems of interest are defined by matrices that have asymptotic expansions in powers of a perturbation parameter a about the point 0. The reachability structure is exposed via the Smith form of the reachability matrix. This approach is used to provide insight into the kinds of inputs needed to reach weakly reachable target states into the structure of high-gain feedback for pole placement, and into the types of inputs that steer trajectories arbitrarily close to almost (A.B)-invariant subspaces and almost (A.B)-controllability subspaces
Optical flow computation via multiscale regularization by M. R Luettgen( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The apparent motion of brightness patterns in an image is referred to as the optical flow. In computational vision, optical flow is an important input into higher level vision algorithms performing tasks such as segmentation, tracking, object detection, robot guidance and recovery of shape information. In addition, methods for computing optical flow are an essential part of motion compensated coding schemes. In this paper, we present a new approach to the problem of computing optical flow. Standard formulations of this problem require the computationally intensive solution of an elliptic partial differential equation which arises from the often used "smoothness constraint" regularization term. We utilize the interpretation of the smoothness constraint as a "fractal prior" to motivate regularization based on a recently introduced class of multiscale stochastic models. These models are associated with efficient multiscale smoothing algorithms, and experiments on several image sequences demonstrate the substantial computational savings that can be achieved through their use
