A quasi-infinite horizon nonlinear model predictive control scheme with guaranteed stability
We present in this paper a novel nonlinear model predictive control scheme that guarantees closed-loop stability. The scheme can be applied to both stable and unstable systems with input constraints.Expand

Fluid Approximations and Stability of Multiclass Queueing Networks: Work-Conserving Disciplines
This paper studies the uid approximation (also known as the functional strong law-of-large-numbers) and the stability (positive Harris recurrent) for a multiclass queueing network. Both of these areExpand
