Generalizations of the well-known maximum entropy principle (MEP) by E. T. Jaynes, and the minimum discrimination information principle (MDIP) by Kullback are described. The generalization has beenâ€¦ (More)

The problem of initial probability assignment consistent with the available information about a probabilistic system is called a direct problem. Jaynesâ€™ maximum entropy principle (MaxEnt) provides aâ€¦ (More)

The distinction between geometry and dynamic interactions is fundamental for the consistent dynamic analysis of physical systems. A unified treatment of such systems is possible when we adopt aâ€¦ (More)

Penalty function methods have been widely used for solving constrained nonlinear programming problems that arise in optimal load-flow analysis of power systems. One of the basic drawbacks of theseâ€¦ (More)

A methodology of modeling and analysis of planar mechanical systems is developed based on graph theoretic methods, with improvements in component models. The system model based on cutset and circuitâ€¦ (More)
