Output stabilizability of discrete event dynamic systems
by Cüneyt M Özveren
(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The study of the control of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems (DEDS) was been introduced by Wonham, Ramadge, et al. This work prompted a considerable response by other researchers, exploring a variety of alternate formulations and paradigms. In our work, we have had in mind the development of a regulator theory for DEDS. In another paper, we develop notions of stability and stabilizability for DEDS while in second, we focus on the questions of observability and state reconstruction, using what might be thought of as an intermittent observation model. In this paper, we combine our work on stabilizability and observability to address the problem of stabilization by dynamic output feedback under partial observations. Our presentation here is necessarily brief
Kalman filtering and Riccati equations for descriptor systems
by Ramine Nikoukhah
(
Book
)
4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In this paper we consider a general formulation of a discretetime 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 socalled "3block" form for the optimal filter and a corresponding 3block Riccati equation for a general class of timevarying descriptor models which need not represent a wellposed system in that the dynamics may be either over or underconstrained. Specializing to the timeinvariant case we examine the asymptotic properties of the 3block filter, and in particular analyze in detail the resulting 3block algebraic Riccati equation, generalizing significantly the results in [23, 28, 33]. Finally, the noncausal nature of discretetime 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
Aggregation and multilevel control in discrete event dynamic systems
by Cüneyt M Özveren
(
Book
)
4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In this paper we consider the problem of higherlevel aggregate modelling and control of discreteevent 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 higherlevel 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 higherlevel 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 higherlevel models of interconnections of DEDS. This allows us to "slow down" the combinatorial explosion typically present in computations involving interacting automata
Modeling and estimation of multiresolution stochastic processes
by Alan S Willsky
(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In this paper, we provide an overview of the several components of a research effort aimed at the development of a theory of multiresolution stochastic modeling and associated techniques for optimal multiscale statistical signal and image processing. As we describe, a natural framework for developing such a theory is the study of stochastic processes indexed by nodes on lattices or trees in which different depths in the tree or lattice correspond to different spatial scales in representing a signal or image. In particular we will see how the wavelet transform directly suggests such a modeling paradigm. This perspective then leads directly to the investigation of several classes of dynamic models and related notions of "multiscale stationarity" in which scale plays the role of a timelike variable. In this paper we focus primarily on the investigation of models on homogeneous trees. In particular we describe the elements of a dynamic system theory on trees and introduce two notions of stationarity. One of these leads naturally to the development of a theory of multiscale autoregressive modeling including a generalization of the celebrated Schur and Levinson algorithms for orderrecursive model building. The second, weaker motion of stationarity leads directly to a class of state space models on homogeneous trees. We describe several of the elements of the system theory for such models and also describe the natural, extremely efficient algorithmic structures for optimal estimation that these models suggest: one class of algorithms has a multigrid relaxation structure; a second uses the scaletoscale whitening property of wavelet transforms for our models; and a third leads to a new class of Riccati equations involving the usual predict and update steps and a new "fusion" step as information is propagated from fine to coarse scales. As we will see, this framework allows us to consider in a very natural way the fusion of data from sensors with differing resolution

Scaling results for the variational approach to edge detection
by Thomas J Richardson
(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In another paper the first author presented an asymptotic result concerning the MumfordShah functional. In this paper an algorithm is presented which implements the scaling suggested by the asymptotic results to obtain accurate localization of edges even when only large scale edges are being detected. An approximation to E is also considered and the implications of the asymptotic results to this functional are also examined

Singular perturbations in manufacturing
by H. Mete Soner
(

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Abstract: "We present an asymptotic analysis for a large class of stochastic optimization problems arising in manufacturing. A typical example of the problems we consider, is a production planning problem with random capacity and demand. In this example we assume that the capacity of the system fluctuates faster than the other quantities. The general model we consider also has a fast controlled Markov process in its state description. Using the difference in the time scales of different quantities, we simplify the problem by 'averaging' out the fast process. Then asymptotically optimal strategies are constructed from the optimal solutions of the limiting problems. The proofs of these results use the theory of viscosity solutions to dynamic programming equations. However, the formal construction of the asymptotically optimal strategies does not require the knowledge of this theory."
