The third Conference on Computation and Control was held at Mon tana State University in Bozeman, Montana from August 5-11, 1992 and this proceedings represents the evolution that the conference has taken since its 1988 and 1990 predecessors. The first conference and proceedings (Volume 1 in PSCT) nurtured a dialogue between researchers in control theory and the area of numerical computation. This cross-fertilization was continued with the 1990 conference and proceedings (Volume 11 in PSCT) while forecasting the theme for this conference. The present volume contains a collection of papers addressing issues ranging from noise abatement via smart material technology, robotic vi sion, and parameter identification to feedback design challenges in fluid control and other areas of topical interest. The area of feedback design in fluid control spawns computational challenges in the form of Burgers' equation which is addressed both with standard numerical methods as well as new computational procedures. Applications which involve inverse prob lems include material parameter estimation and sampling in observability. Whether motivated by the plant or arising as the distributed system in the design of a feedback compensator for problems in nonlinear control, the theme of this conference placed an emphasis on the use of partial dif ferential equations in control theory. Through challenges initiated via the control problem or the subsequent computational problem, the joint efforts of experts from the respective disciplines enhance the development of both

This volume contains a collection of papers delivered by the partici­ pants at the second Conference on Computation and Control held at Mon­ tana State University in Bozeman, Montana from August 1-7, 1990. The conference, as well as this proceedings, attests to the vitality and cohesion between the control theorist and the numerical analyst that was adver­ tised by the first Conference on Computation and Control in 1988. The proceedings of that initial conference was published by Birkhiiuser Boston as the first volume of this same series entitled Computation and Control, Proceedings of the Bozeman Conference, Bozeman, Montana, 1988. Control theory and numerical analysis are both, by their very nature, interdisciplinary subjects as evidenced by their interaction with other fields of mathematics and engineering. While it is clear that new control or es­ timation algorithms and new feedback design methodologies will need to be implemented computationally, it is likewise clear that new problems in computational mathematics arise when implementing a new generation of control algorithms. For these reasons, computational mathematics is mov­ ing to the forefront in recent developments in modern control theory and conversely control theory and its applications continue to be a fertile area for computationalists. This volume contains a representative cross section of the interdisciplinary blend of analytic and numerical techniques that of­ ten occur between advanced control design and practical numerical solution of lumped and distributed parameter systems
Computation and control IV : proceedings of the Fourth Bozeman conference, Bozeman, Montana, August 3-9, 1994 by K. L Bowers( )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth Conference on Computation and Control was held at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, from August 3-9, 1994. These proceedings represent the continued evolution on the cross-disciplinary dialogue begun at the 1988 conference (Volume 1 of PSCT) and continued on a biennial basis in 1990 and 1992. Those proceedings are housed in Volume 11 of PSCT and Volume 15 of PSCT, respectively. In recent years considerable effort has been devoted to the problem of developing rigorous numerical methods and computational tools for control design and analysis. Although computational problems in control are extremely complex, these problems often have special structures that can be exploited to obtain both theoretical and computational results. Moreover, problems that arise from applications are best addressed by interdisciplinary approaches where experts in various disciplines (e.g. numerical analysis, control theory, fluid dynamics) come together and create numerical algorithms specifically for use in control design. This communication not only creates new mathematical tools, it often produces new research problems in the individual disciplines. This conference continues to bring together leading experts in control theory, numerical mathematics and various application areas to discuss recent developments in interdisciplinary approaches to computational control
Sinc-Galerkin estimation of diffusivity in parabolic problems by Ralph C Smith( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fully Sinc Galerkin method for the numerical recovery of spatially varying diffusion coefficients in linear partial differential equations is presented. Because the parameter recovery problems are inherently ill-posed, an output error criterion in conjunction with Tikhonov regularization is used to formulate them as infinite-dimensional minimization problems. The forward problems are discretized with a sinc basis in both the spatial and temporal domains thus yielding an approximate solution which displays an exponential convergence rate and is valid on the infinite time interval. The minimization problems are then solved via a quasi-Newton/trust region algorithm. The L-curve technique for determining an appropriate value of the regularization parameter is briefly discussed, and numerical examples are given which demonstrate the applicability of the method both for problems with noise-free data as well as for those whose data contains white noise
Numerical recovery of material parameters in Euler-Bernoulli beam models by Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fully Sinc-Galerkin method for recovering the spatially varying stiffness parameter in fourth-order time dependent problems with fixed and cantilever boundary conditions is presented. The forward problems are discretized with a sinc basis in both the spatial and temporal domains. This yields an approximate solution which converges exponentially and is valid on the infinite time interval. When the forward methods are applies to parameter recovery problems, the resulting inverse problems are ill-posed. Tikhonov regularization is applied and the resulting minimization problems are solved via a quasi-Newton/trust region algorithm. The L-curve is used to determine an appropriate value of the regularization parameter. Numerical results which highlight the method are given for problems with both fixed and cantilever boundary conditions
A fully Galerkin method for the recovery of stiffness and damping parameters in Euler-Bernoulli beam models by Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fully Sinc-Galerkin method for recovering the spatially varying stiffness and damping parameters in Euler-Bernoulli beam models is presented. The forward problems are discretized with a sinc basis in both the spatial and temporal domains thus yielding an approximate solution which converges exponentially and is valid on the infinite time interval. Hence the method avoids the time-stepping which is characteristic of many of the forward schemes which are employed in parameter recovery algorithms. Tikhonov regularization is used to stabilize the resulting inverse problem, and the L-curve method for determining an appropriate value of the regularization parameter is briefly discussed. Numerical examples are given which demonstrate the applicability of the method for both individual and simultaneous recovery of the material parameters

A fully Sinc-Galerkin method for Euler-Bernoulli beam models by Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fully Sinc-Galerkin method in both space and time is presented for fourth-order time-dependent partial differential equations with fixed and cantilever boundary conditions. The Sinc discretizations for the second-order temporal problem and the fourth-order problems are given which prove to be especially useful when applying the forward techniques of this paper to parameter recovery problems. The discrete system which corresponds to the time- dependent partial differential equations of interest are then formulated. Computational issues are discussed and a robust and efficient algorithm for solving the resulting matrix system is outlined. Numerical results which highlight the method are given for problems with both analytic and singular solutions as well as fixed and cantilever boundary conditions. (KR)
