Definition 1.1a: A system is an arrangement, set, or collection of things connected or related in such a manner as to form an entirety or whole.(More)
In this paper, we present a mathematical foundation, including a convergence analysis, for cascading architecture neural network. Our analysis also shows that the convergence of the cascade architecture neural network is assured because it satisfies Liapunov criteria, in an added hidden unit domain rather than in the time domain. From this analysis, a(More)
A typical urban traffic network is a complicated large-scale stochastic system which consists of many interconnected signalized traffic intersections. Thls paper develops a decentralized real-time adaptive control strategy for the traffic networks based on Markov decision theory. Computer simulation results of this new approach on a five intersection(More)
