This note addresses the output feedback H8 control problem for continuous-time Markov jump linear systems. It is shown that the feasibility of a set of linear matrix inequalities is both sufficient and necessary for the ...
This note addresses the output feedback Hinfin control problem for continuous-time Markov jump linear systems. It is shown that the feasibility of a certain set of linear matrix inequalities is both sufficient and necessary ...
This paper present a new routing protocol for Ad hoc networks, called On-demand Tree-based Routing Protocol (OTRP). This protocol combines the idea of hop-by-hop routing such as AODV with an efficient route discovery ...
This paper investigated human heart rate (HR) and oxygen uptake (VO2) dynamics to running exercise and developed an electronic circuitry based mathematical model to quantitatively depict the metabolic and energy-generating ...

This paper addresses the problem of bounding the reachable set of the sliding dynamics in discrete-time systems subject to time-varying state delay and bounded external disturbances. The sliding motion is determined from ...
An approximate solution for the super-harmonic resonance response of a periodically excited nonlinear oscillator with a piecewise nonlinear-linear characteristic is constructed using both a matching method and a modified ...

Subdaily, annual maximum rainfall series from a number of locations about Australia are analysed to determine how extreme bursts at one duration coincide with those at another duration. Burst patterns for sites at Darwin ...
The steady-state response of forced single degree-of-freedom weakly nonlinear oscillators under primary resonance conditions can exhibit saddle-node bifurcations, jump and hysteresis phenomena, if the amplitude of the ...
This paper presents a novel method of designing active inductors using current-controlled voltage sources (CCVSs). The basic idea consists of designing an equivalent inductor, using only capacitors and CCVSs. The signal-flow ...

We consider issues related to the design of a 60GHz short-range wireless local area network (WLAN) using low cost components and aiming at data rates on the order of 1Gbit/s. It is anticipated that the use of adaptive ...
In the last decade, Electro-Sensitive Elastomers (ESE) with significant electro-mechanical response have been discovered. These polymers are the candidate materials for the construction of solid-state actuators and sensors. ...

Welded wire fabric (WWF) is commonly used in reinforced concrete slabs. In Australia, such
steel is classified as Class L - low ductility (ASINZS467 1-2001). Typically, the strain at peak stress (termed
the uniform ...
The design of UWB systems for consumer electronic application requires the integration of the antenna for aesthetical design reason. This paper discusses the influence of the integration on the performance of UWB antennas ...
Following a successful experimental validation of a magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) base isolator, this study presents one of the major concerns, the heating of the magnetic coil, in the design and development of the ...
Map joining is an efficient strategy for solving feature based SLAM problems. This paper demonstrates that joining of two 2D local maps, formulated as a nonlinear least squares problem has at most two local minima, when ...
In this paper we analyze the outage probability of a cooperative multihop parallel relay network in Nakagami-m fading channels. The general closed form expression of the outage probability is derived both for integer and ...

Urban stormwater runoff is a transport medium for many contaminants from anthropogenic sources. There are many alternative management strategies available to treat these contaminants. One of the technologies suggested for ...
The paper will put a forward a description of a realistic design for a brushless doubly-fed machine that is of practical value. It takes the form a 4-pole / 8-pole machine aimed for use in a 2 MW wind turbine over a ...
