Toward the synthesis of state-space controllers, a neural-genetic model based on the linear quadratic regulator design for the eigenstructure assignment of multivariable dynamic systems is presented. The neural-genetic model represents a fusion of a genetic algorithm and a recurrent neural network (RNN) to perform the selection of the weighting matrices and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the temporal dynamics of downy mildew epidemics under four training systems: vertical shoot positioning (VSP), Geneva Double Curtain (GDC), Simple Curtain (SC) and Tendone in two cultivars (‘Cabernet Sauvignon’ and ‘Merlot’). Experiments were conducted at commercial vineyards in southern Brazil, during the 2012–2013 and(More)
In order to operate a public transportation system, it is necessary to plan the grounded fleet lines among the various origin/destination spread all over the city to better attend population displacement during the day, which uses the bus transportation system. To improve planning operation of the public transportation system, it is proposed a linear(More)
The epidemiology of Entomosporium leaf spot (ELS) affecting European pear is poorly understood, which limits the development of an effective management strategy. In vitro assays were conducted to study the effect of temperature levels (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 °C) on Diplocarpon mespili conidial germination evaluated at different incubation times (0, 2, 4,(More)
