  1. 1. Stochastic Resonance and Noise-Assisted Signal Transfer : On Coupling Effects of Stochastic Resonators and Spectral Optimization of Fluctuations in Random Network Switches

    Author : Peter Hammerstein; Claes Granqvist; Laszlo Kish; Hans Liljenström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Engineering physics; stochastic resonance; nonlinear stochastic dynamics; noise and fluctuations; magnetic domains; Teknisk fysik; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Recent research shows that noise or random fluctuations must not always be destructive in Nature by degrading system performance. On the contrary, in nonlinear systems they can synchronize systems or enhance the quality of signal transmission. The latter possibility is reported in the thesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. The stochastic nature of intracellular control circuits

    Author : Johan Paulsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Stochastic; mesoscopic; noise; gene; plasmid; metabolic; regulation; control; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Chemical reactions are probabilistic by nature, causing random fluctuations inconcentrations to emerge spontaneously. In conventional (macroscopic) kinetics this internal noise is ignored under the assumption that average copy numbers are so high that fluctuations are negligible in comparison. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stochastic Event-Based Control and Estimation

    Author : Toivo Henningsson; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; event-based control; event-based estimation; sporadic control; stochastic control; stochastic hybrid systems; sum-of-squares methods; control over networks; quantized measurements;

    Abstract : Digital controllers are traditionally implemented using periodic sampling, computation, and actuation events. As more control systems are implemented to share limited network and CPU bandwidth with other tasks, it is becoming increasingly attractive to use some form of event-based control instead, where precious events are used only when needed.

  4. 4. Optimal bidding of a hydropower producer insequential power markets with riskassessment : Stochastic programming approach

    Author : Yelena Vardanyan; Mohammad Reza Hesamzadeh; Javier Contreras; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Short-term hydropower planning and bidding under uncertainty is a complicated task. The problem became more challenging with the liberalized market environment within the last two decades. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structured Stochastic Bandits

    Author : Stefan Magureanu; Alexandre Proutiere; Emilie Kaufmann; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multi-armed bandits; Learning to rank; reinforcement learning; Lipschitz Bandits; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we address the multi-armed bandit (MAB) problem with stochastic rewards and correlated arms. Particularly, we investigate the case when the expected rewards are a Lipschitz function of the arm, and the learning to rank problem, as viewed from a MAB perspective. READ MORE
