Generalized predictive control - Part I. The basic algorithm
Generalized predictive control or GPC can be used either to control a “simple” plant (e.g. openloop stable) with little prior knowledge or a more complex plant such as nonminimum-phase, open-loop unstable and having variable dead-time. Expand

Generalized Predictive Control - Part II Extensions and interpretations
GPC can be equipped with the design features of the GMV approach and given a wide range of possible control objectives, which can be interpreted by its relationship with LQ algorithms based on statespace models. Expand

Titan haze: structure and properties of cyanoacetylene and cyanoacetylene-acetylene photopolymers.
The structure and morphological properties of polymers produced photochemically from the UV irradiation of cyanoacetylene and cyanoacetylene mixtures have been examined to evaluate their possibleExpand

  • 1 September 1984
The instability that arises from the pole-zero cancellation of elementary self-tuners and most MRAC algorithms has given rise to a misapprehension that nonminimum-phase systems can pose insoluble problems with the application of adaptive control. Expand

Photodissociation of cyanoacetylene: application to the atmospheric chemistry of Titan.
The quantum yield and reaction threshold for the photochemical dissociation of cyanoacetylene into a hydrogen atom and the cyanoethynyl radical have been determined. The quantum yield at 185 nm isExpand

Efficient production of male Wolbachia-infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes enables large-scale suppression of wild populations
The range of the mosquito Aedes aegypti continues to expand, putting more than two billion people at risk of arboviral infection. The sterile insect technique (SIT) has been used to successfullyExpand

A sediment record of barrier estuary behaviour at the mesoscale: Interpreting high-resolution particle size analysis
Abstract At present, limited understanding of mesoscale (years–decades–centuries) back-barrier lagoon, barrier estuary behaviour is a critical shortcoming for resource managers and decision makers.Expand
