This paper focuses on the problem of static anti-windup design for a class of nonlinear systems subject to actuator saturation. Considering that a nonlinear dynamic output feedback controller has been designed to stabilize the nonlinear system, a method is proposed to compute a static anti-windup gain which ensures the local stability of the the closed-loop(More)
Metastatic breast cancer is essentially an incurable disease. However, recent advances have resulted in a significant improvement of overall survival. The SEOM guidelines are intended to make evidence-based recommendations on how to manage patients with metastatic breast cancer to achieve the best patient outcomes based on a rational use of the currently(More)
For many years ozone concentrations in California's South Coast Air Basin have been higher on weekends than on weekdays, despite assumed lower weekend emissions. The " weekend effect " has potential implications for regional ozone control strategies. A multi-level field measurement program of air quality and emission activities was conducted to study the(More)
OBJECTIVE to analyze the effects of hyaluronic acid of different molecular weights in an experimental model of osteoarthritis in rabbits. METHODS forty-four male California rabbits were divided randomly into three groups and underwent resection of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. After three weeks of the surgical procedure began three(More)
— This paper focuses on the problem of static anti-windup design for a class of multivariable nonlinear systems subject to actuator saturation. More precisely, a convex approach is proposed to compute a static anti-windup gain which ensures regional stability for the closed-loop system assuming that a nonlinear dynamic output feedback controller is(More)
