  1. 1. Inverse Problems in Analytic Interpolation for Robust Control and Spectral Estimation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Johan Karlsson; Anders Lindquist; Alberto Isidori; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nevanlinna-Pick Interpolation; Approximation; Model Reduction; Robust Control; Gap-robustness; Sensitivity Shaping; Entropy functional; Spectral Estimation; Weak*-topology; Monge-Kantorovic Transportation; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Optimization; systems theory; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Optimeringslära; systemteori;

    Abstract : This thesis is divided into two parts. The first part deals with theNevanlinna-Pick interpolation problem, a problem which occursnaturally in several applications such as robust control, signalprocessing and circuit theory. We consider the problem of shaping andapproximating solutions to the Nevanlinna-Pick problem in a systematicway. READ MORE

  2. 2. Measurement and Control of Attosecond Light Fields

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Erik Mansten; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pulse characterization; Spectral signature; Two-color generation; Pulse compression; Attosecond pulse trains; High-order harmonics; Pulse shaping; Tunable; Fysicumarkivet A:2009:Mansten;

    Abstract : Attosecond pulses are used to study electron dynamics in atoms and molecules. In this thesis, schemes to control the generation of attosecond pulses and pulse-shaping techniques to compress the pulses are presented. Generation of attosecond pulses requires high intensity, which is reached by focusing a pulsed femtosecond laser. READ MORE

    Abstract : Early detection is vital to successfully treating breast cancer, and mammography screening is the most efficient and wide-spread method to reach this goal. Imaging low-contrast targets, while minimizing the radiation exposure to a large population is, however, a major challenge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling and Model Reduction by Analytic Interpolation and Optimization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Giovanna Fanizza; Anders Lindquist; György Michaletzky; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Analytic Interpolation theory with a degree constraint; rational covariance extension problem; spectral estimation; model reduction; optimization; passive system; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Optimization; systems theory; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Optimeringslära; systemteori;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of six papers. The main topic of all these papers is modeling a class of linear time-invariant systems. The system class is parameterized in the context of interpolation theory with a degree constraint. READ MORE

  5. 5. A convex optimization approach to complexity constrained analytic interpolation with applications to ARMA estimation and robust control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anders Blomqvist; Anders Lindquist; Giorgio Picci; [2005]
