  1. 1. Random railways and cycles in random regular graphs

    Author : Hans Garmo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Mathematics; Random railway; connectivity number; random regular graph; long cycles; asymptotic distribution. 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification. Primary 60F05; 60C05; 05C38; 05C80; 05C40; 05C45; MATEMATIK; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : In a cubic multigraph certain restrictions on the paths are made to define what is called a railway. Due to these restrictions a special kind of connectivity is defined. As the number of vertices tends to infinity, the asymptotic probability of obtaining an, in this sense, connected random cubic multigraph is shown to be 1/3. READ MORE

  2. 2. Some Extensions of Poincaré-Bendixson Theory Applied to a Resonant Converter

    Author : Jan Melin; Matematik LTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; numerical analysis; systems; control; Naturvetenskap; Computer science; Natural science; Poincaré-Bendixson Theory; Limit Cycles; Resonant Converter; Distributions; Piecewise Linear Systems;

    Abstract : In this thesis existence and uniqueness of limit cycles are shown for a resonant converter, by extending Poincaré-Bendixson theory to non-smooth vector fields. We discuss relevant control theory and the role of simulations... READ MORE

    Abstract : This PhD thesis consists of a summary and seven papers, where various applications of auto-validated computations are studied. In the first paper we describe a rigorous method to determine unknown parameters in a system of ordinary differential equations from measured data with known bounds on the noise of the measurements.

  4. 4. Active Vibration Control of Multibody Systems : Application to Automotive Design

    Author : Claes Olsson; Alexander Medvedev; Stephen Elliott; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active Vibration Control; Vibration Isolation; Feedback Control; Adaptive Filtering; Saturation; Limit Cycles; Multi Body Systems; Modelling; Simulation; Non-linearity; Gain Scheduling; Structure Flexibility; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Active vibration control to reduce vibrations and structure borne noise is considered using a powerful multi-disciplinary virtual design environment which enables control system design to be considered as an integral part of the overall vehicle design. The main application studied is active automotive engine vibration isolation where, first, the potential of large frequency band multi-input multi-output H2 feedback control is considered. READ MORE
