This paper addresses the problem of identification of hybrid dynami-cal systems, by focusing the attention on hinging hyperplanes (HHARX) and Wiener piecewise affine (W-PWARX) autoregressive exogenous models. In particular, we provide algorithms based on mixed-integer linear or quadratic programming which are guaranteed to converge to a global optimum. For(More)
This paper presents a necessary and sufficient condition under which a discrete-time switched affine (SWA) state space model admits equivalent representations in the class of SWA input-output models. In particular, it is shown that observability is not a necessary requirement for input-output realization of SWA models. When an equivalent input-output(More)
Extremely broadband grazing-incidence multilayers for hard-x-ray reflection can be obtained by a gradual change of the layer thicknesses down through the structure. Existing approaches for designing similar neutron optics, called supermirrors, are shown to provide respectable performance when applied to x-ray multilayers. However, none of these approaches(More)
Systems biology and its usage of mathematical modeling to analyse biological data is rapidly becoming an established approach to biology. A crucial advantage of this approach is that more information can be extracted from observations of intricate dynamics, which allows nontrivial complex explanations to be evaluated and compared. In this minireview we(More)
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance of target organs, which is due to impaired insulin signal transduction. The skeleton of signaling mediators that provide for normal insulin action has been established. However, the detailed kinetics, and their mechanistic generation, remain incompletely understood. We measured time-courses in primary(More)
— This paper addresses the conversion of discrete-time single input-single output PieceWise Affine (PWA) models from state space to input-output form. Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for a PWA state space model to admit equivalent input-output representations. When an equivalent input-output model exists, a constructive procedure is presented(More)
Detecting and isolating multiple faults is a computationally expensive task. It typically consists of computing a set of tests and then computing the diagnoses based on the test results. This paper describes FlexDx, a reconfigurable diagnosis framework which reduces the computational burden while retaining the isolation performance by only running a subset(More)
