    • Feedback regulation of logistic growth 

      Gopalsamy, Kondalsamy; Weng, Peixuan (Hindawi, 1993-01-01)
      Sufficient conditions are obtained for the global asymptotic stability of the positive equilibrium of a regulated logistic growth with a delay in the state feedback of the control modelled bydn(t)dt=rn(t)[1−(a1n(t)+a2n(t ...
    • An analysis of FPGA-based custom computers for DSP applications 

      Bergmann, Neil W; Mudge, Craig (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) can be rapidly reconfigured to provide different digital logic functions. When such FPGA logic circuits are incorporated within a stored-program computer, the result is a machine where ...

      Burford, Richard G; Fan, Xingcha; Bergmann, Neil W (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      A CMOS digital logic design technique is described which exploits the advantages of fast precharged logic and efficient latch design commonly used in synchronous systems while maintaining the features of localized control ...
    • Software process representation to support multiple views 

      Jacobs, David; Marlin, Chris (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      Current interest in improving the effectiveness and predictability of software development has led to a recent focus on software process modeling and improvement. Process-centered software development environments (PCSDEs), ...
    • Comparing the performance of FPGA-based custom computers with general-purpose computers for DSP applications 

      Bergmann, Neil W; Mudge, Craig (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      When FPGA logic circuits are incorporated within a stored-program computer, the result is a machine where the programmer can design both the software and the hardware that will execute that software. This paper first ...
    • Design techniques for high performance asynchronous arithmetic operators 

      Fan, Xingcha; Burford, Richard G; Bergmann, Neil W (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      High performance asynchronous arithmetic operator design techniques are proposed, which adopt some of the techniques commonly used in synchronous systems such as fast precharged logic and efficient latch design, while ...
    • Convergence in neural networks with interneuronal transmission delays 

      Gopalsamy, Kondalsamy (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      We obtain sufficient conditions for the global asymptotic stability of the equilibrium of a class of neural networks with inter-neuronal transmission delays.
    • Delay-independent stability in bidirectional associative memory networks 

      Gopalsamy, Kondalsamy; He, Xue-Zhong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1994)
      It is shown that if the neuronal gains are small compared with the synaptic connection weights, then a bidirectional associative memory network with axonal signal transmission delays converges to the equilibria associated ...
    • Percentile performance criteria for limiting average Markov Decision Processes 

      Filar, Jerzy A; Krass, Dmitry; Ross, Keith W (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, 1995)
      In this paper we address the following basic feasibility problem for infinite-horizon Markov decision processes (MDP’s): can a policy be found that achieves a specified value (target) of the long-run limiting average reward ...
    • Weighted Markov Decision Processes with perturbation 

      Liu, Ke; Filar, Jerzy A (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, 1995)
      In this paper we consider the weighted reward MDP’s with perturbation. We give the proof of existence of a delta-optimal simple ultimately deterministic policy under the assumption of “scalar value”. We also prove that ...
    • Modelling systems that integrate programming language and environment mechanisms 

      Ransom, Keith J.; Marlin, Chris (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1995)
      Once we relax the assumption that it must be possible to specify programs solely in terms of text and enter them in isolation from other tools, the range of possible program development mechanisms is significantly increased. ...
    • Performance of a nonlinear controller in power system stabilisation 

      He, Fangpo; Gibbard, Michael J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1995)
      This paper describes a nonlinear control strategy for the design of a controller (stabiliser) for a synchronous generator. It is first shown that a nonlinear model, which is derived from the equations of the generator and ...
    • Commonsense knowledge representation and reasoning with fuzzy neural networks 

      Kouzani, Abbas; He, Fangpo; Sammut, Karl (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1996)
      This paper highlights the theory of common-sense knowledge in terms of representation and reasoning. A connectionist model is proposed for common-sense knowledge representation and reasoning. A generic fuzzy neuron is ...

      Filar, Jerzy A; Gaitsgory, Vladimir; Haurie, Alain (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, 1996)
      In this paper we study a class of optimal stochastic control problems involving two different time scales. The fast mode of the system is represented by deterministic state equations whereas the slow mode of the ...

    • Specifying direct manipulation within program editors 

      Read, Michael (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1996)
      Language specific editors, since they are cognisant of the syntax and semantics of the programming language they manipulate, should provide a number of advantages for software developers. However they have not been widely ...

      Schmerl, Bradley; Marlin, Chris (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE Publishing), 1996)
