Human Dietary Exposure to Fumonisin B1 from Iranian Maize Harvested During 1998–2000
Fumonisin B1 (FB1) is the most abundant of the fumonisin mycotoxins, mainly produced in maize by F. verticillioides and F. proliferatum. A previous study on the FB1 contamination of maize harvestedExpand

Revisiting Finite-Time Distributed Algorithms via Successive Nulling of Eigenvalues
TLDR
We derive distributed iterations that are a function of a linear operator on the underlying graph and show that any arbitrary initial condition can be forced to lie on a particular subspace in a finite time. Expand

Distributed Localization: A Linear Theory
TLDR
This paper discusses distributed localization in a 5G-enabled IoT environment where many low power devices, users, or agents are to locate themselves without a direct access to anchors. Expand

An Opportunistic Linear–Convex Algorithm for Localization in Mobile Robot Networks
TLDR
In this paper, we develop a distributed algorithm to localize a network of robots moving arbitrarily in a bounded region and show that it asymptotically converges to the true locations of the robots. Expand

TLDR
We introduce the notion of a virtual convex hull, which forms the basis of a distributed algorithm to localize an arbitrary number of agents moving in a bounded region of interest. Expand

Leader-Follower Consensus in Mobile Sensor Networks
TLDR
In this letter, we study the consensus-based leader-follower algorithm in mobile sensor networks, where the goal for the entire network is to converge to the state of a leader. Expand

An Explicit Convergence Rate for Nesterov's Method from SDP
TLDR
The framework of Integral Quadratic Constraints (IQC) reduces the computation of upper bounds on the convergence rate of several optimization algorithms to semi-definite programming (SDP). Expand

Asymptotic Stability of LTV Systems With Applications to Distributed Dynamic Fusion
TLDR
We investigate the behavior of Linear Time-Varying (LTV) systems with randomly appearing, sub-stochastic system matrices. Expand
