  • Wang, Xingyuan (2010-06-22)
    The frequency-energy plot (FEP) is a useful tool in analyzing nonlinear system response, but previous methods of generating the FEP were limited to analytical calculations or use of the wavelet transform. Although these ...

  • Shermer, Russel Duane (1991)
    We extend a new method of control, model-based control, to the realm of partial differential equations. The hallmark of model-based control is that a particular goal dynamics is achieved by using a model for the observed ...
