#### Electric breakdown in polycrystalline semiconductors with highly nonlinear I-V characteristics: Simulations for simple barrier height models

(1997)

An extension of the Canessa and Nguyen binary model for the nonlinear current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of polycrystalline semiconductors, based on the electrical properties of individual grains, is presented. Simple ...

#### Decentralized blocking zeros and the decentralized strong stabilization problem

(IEEE, 1995)

This paper is concerned with a new system theoretic concept, decentralized blocking zeros, and its applications in the design of decentralized controllers for linear time-invariant finite-dimensional systems. The concept ...

#### Hypersolver: a graphical tool for commonsense set theory

(Elsevier, 1995)

This paper investigates an alternative set theory (due to Aczel) called the Hyperset Theory. Aczel uses a graphical representation for sets and thereby allows the representation of non-well-founded sets. A program, called ...

#### On the stabilization and stability robustness against small delays of some damped wave equations

(IEEE, 1995)

In this note we consider a system which can be modeled by two different one-dimensional damped wave equations in a bounded domain, both parameterized by a nonnegative damping constant. We assume that the system is fixed ...

#### Part-machine grouping using a multi-objective cluster analysis

(1996)

In the existing literature, the part-family formation problem is handled either by the coding systems or the cluster analysis. In this study, we propose a new method that will consider both design and manufacturing attributes ...

#### Scheduling of automated guided vehicles in a decision making hierarchy

(Taylor & Francis, 1996)

Scheduling efforts made without considering the special limitations of the material handling system might lead to infeasible results. An analytical model is proposed, first, to incorporate the automated guided vehicle (AGV) ...

#### A note on the within-cell layout problem based on operation sequences

(Taylor & Francis, 1996)

The existing studies in the literature usually ignore the within-cell layout problem while forming part families and manufacturing cells. A new approach is proposed to solve the part-family and machine-cell formation problem ...

#### Composite regions of feasibility for certain classes of distance constrained network location problems

(INFORMS, 1996)

Distance constrained network location involves locating m new facilities on a transport network G so as to satisfy upper bounds on distances between pairs of new facilities and pairs of new and existing facilities. The ...

#### A Hamiltonian-based solution to the mixed sensitivity optimization problem for stable pseudorational plants

(Elsevier, 2005-11)

This paper considers the mixed sensitivity optimization problem for a class of infinite-dimensional stable plants. This problem is reducible to a two- or one-block H∞ control problem with structured weighting functions. ...

#### Componentwise bounds for nearly completely decomposable Markov chains using stochastic comparison and reordering

(Elsevier, 2005)

This paper presents an improved version of a componentwise bounding algorithm for the state probability vector of nearly completely decomposable Markov chains, and on an application it provides the first numerical results ...
