An Adaptive Dynamic Programming algorithm for nonlinear systems with unknown dynamics is developed. The algorithm is initialized with a positive definite cost functional / stabilizing control law pair (V 0 , k 0) (coupled via the Hamilton Jacobi Bellman Equation). Given (V i , k i), one runs the system using control law k i recording the state and control(More)
Complete feeding sequences (bite to terminal swallow) were recorded in 11 individuals (Class I occlusions) feeding on apple, banana and biscuit (hard cookie) to establish whether jaw movements characteristic of the stage I transport, chewing, stage II transport and swallowing processes found in non-human mammals could be identified in man. All participants(More)
Dynamic reconfiguration of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) has recently emerged as the next step in reconfigurable computing. Sanders, A Lockheed Martin Company, is developing the enabling technology to exploit dynamic reconfiguration. Sanders, working with Signal Systems Corporation, identified key elements to the successful utilization of context(More)
Isolable, water-soluble gold clusters protected by monolayers of tiopronin (tiopronin-MPCs) or coenzyme A (CoA-MPCs) were synthesized by a procedure of comparable simplicity to the Brust synthesis for alkanethiolate monolayer-protected gold clusters. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy shows that, like their alkanethiolate-MPC counterparts, the(More)

Imagers on many of the current and future operational meteorological satellites in geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) and lower Earth orbit (LEO) have enough spectral channels to derive cloud microphysical properties useful for a variety of applications. The products include cloud amount, phase, optical depth, temperature, height and pressure, thickness,(More)
