— In this paper a distributed version of the Kalman filter is proposed. In particular, the estimation problem is reduced to the optimization of a cost function that depends on the system dynamics and the latest output measurements and state estimates which is distributed among the agents by means of dual decomposition. The techniques presented in the paper(More)
The ability of nimodipine, a calcium-channel blocker, to enhance morphine analgesia and/or modify the development of tolerance was studied in patients with cancer pain who had needed successive increments of morphine for periods ranging from 21 to 780 days. Assessment of daily morphine consumption was the primary effect parameter. Nimodipine succeeded in(More)
the operation of a hydro power network through the application of agent-based model pre-dictive controllers, " Abstract This paper presents a comparison between a decentralized and a distributed model-based predic-tive controller on a hydro power valley (HPV) benchmark recently proposed. The HPV is composed by three lakes and a river that is divided in six(More)
