N many fields of science and engineering, such as fluid or structural mechanics, and nanotechnology, dynamical systems at different scale need to be simulated, optimized or controlled. They are often described by discretizations of systems of nonlinear partial differential equations yielding high-dimensional discrete phase spaces. For this...

Simulation of flow through highly heterogeneous porous media results in large ill-conditioned systems of equations. In particular, solving the linearized pressure system can be especially time-consuming. Therefore, extensive efforts to find ways to address this issue effectively are required. In this work, we introduce a POD-based deflation...

The necessity to process signals living in non-Euclidean domains, such as signals defined on the top of a graph, has led to the extension of signal processing techniques to the graph setting. Among different approaches, graph signal processing distinguishes itself by providing a Fourier analysis of these signals. Analogously to the Fourier...

Shipping plays a crucial role in modern society, but has to reduce its impact on the environment. The commercial availability of power electronic converters and lithium-ion batteries provides an opportunity to improve performance of ships energy systems while reducing their environmental impact. However, the degrees of freedom in control for...

In the presence of discontinuous time-varying delays, neither Krasovskii nor Razumikhin techniques can be successfully applied to adaptive stabilization of uncertain switched time-delay systems. This paper develops a new adaptive control scheme for switched time-delay systems that can handle impulsive behavior in both states and time-varying...

Wave attenuation through mangrove forests has received more and more attention, especially in the context of increasing coastal erosion and sea-level-rise. Numerous studies have focused on studying the reduction of wave height in a mangrove forest. However, the understanding of this attenuation process is still in its infancy. In order to obtain...

The linear–quadratic-Gaussian (LQG) control paradigm is well-known in literature. The strategy of minimizing the cost function is available, both for the case where the state is known and where it is estimated through an observer. The situation is different when the cost function has an exponential discount factor, also known as a prescribed...

Little is known about how young high-tech ventures create openness in their knowledge networks. This paper explores the influence of antecedent resources on openness in knowledge networks, seen as diversity in knowledge partners, and explores the impact of openness on growth. The results from 105 university spin-off firms suggest that three...

In this paper, an h∕p spectral element method with least-square formulation for parabolic interface problem will be presented. The regularity result of the parabolic interface problem is proven for non-homogeneous interface data. The differentiability estimates and the main stability estimate theorem, using non-conforming spectral element...

As a special class of hybrid systems, switched systems have attracted a lot of attention in the last decade due to theoretical and practical interests. When controlling switched systems, a ubiquitous problem is the presence of large parametric uncertainties and external disturbances. However, the state of the art on adaptive and robust control...

Numerical simulation is one of the most important tools required for financial and operational management of geothermal reservoirs. The modern geothermal industry is challenged to run large ensembles of numerical models for uncertainty analysis, causing simulation performance to become a critical issue. Geothermal reservoir modeling requires...

We develop a framework for quantitative convergence analysis of Picard iterations of expansive set-valued fixed point mappings. There are two key components of the analysis. The first is a natural generalization of single-valued averaged mappings to expansive set-valued mappings that characterizes a type of strong calmness of the fixed point...

The Winter Colloquium on the Physics of Quantum Electronics (PQE) has been a seminal force in quantum optics and related areas since 1971. It is rather mind-boggling to recognize how the concepts presented at these conferences have transformed scientific understanding and human society. In January 2017, the participants of PQE were asked to...

The accumulation of FOG (Fat, Oil and Grease) deposits in sewer pumping stations results in an increase in maintenance costs, malfunctioning of pumps and, a potential increase of wastewater spills in receiving open water bodies. It is thought that a variety of parameters (e.g. geometry of the pump sump, pump operation, socioeconomic...

In several applications in science and engineering, different types of matrix problems emerge from the discretization of partial differential equations.
This thesis is devoted to the development of new algorithms to solve this
kind of problems. In particular, when the matrices involved are sparse and
non-symmetric. The new algorithms...

The publication of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently stimulated the accurate assessment of actual sea performance of ships, which is evaluated as added resistance in waves. However, a satisfactory consensus on the evaluation method has not yet been reached owing to uncertainty...

Seismic Full-Waveform Inversion is an imaging technique to better understand the earth's subsurface. Therefore, the reflection intensity of sound waves is measured in a field experiment and is matched with the results from a computer simulation in a least-squares sense. From a computational point-of-view, but also from an economic view point,...

In this paper, a novel Lyapunov function is proposed to study switched linear systems with a switching delay between activation of system modes and activation of candidate controller modes. The novelty consists in continuity of the Lyapunov function at the switching instants and discontinuity when the system modes and controller modes are...

In this paper, a control strategy is proposed for the voltage regulation and the shaft speed control of diesel generators on-board of all-electric ships with Direct Current (DC) power and propulsion systems. The proposed methodology is based on Input-Output Feedback Linearization (IOFL) of the prime mover dynamical model. First, a model for...
