In this paper, the theory, structure, design, and implementation of a new class of linear phase paraunitary lter banks (LPPUFBs) are investigated. The novel lter banks with lters of diierent lengths can be viewed as the generalized lapped orthogonal transforms (GenLOTs) with variable-length basis functions. Our main motivation is the application in(More)
In this paper, we offer a new way of exploring relationships between three different dimensions of a business operation, namely the stages of business development, the methods of creativity and the major cultural values. Although separately each of these has gained enormous attention from the management research community, evidenced by a large volume of(More)
Capacitive deionization (CDI) with carbon aerogels has been shown to remove various inorganic species from aqueous solutions, though no studies have shown the electrosorption behavior of multisolute systems in which ions compete for limited surface area. Several experiments were conducted to determine the ion removal capacity and selectivity of carbon(More)
High-quality and low-delay MPEG2 video coding can be achieved by avoiding the use of intra (I) and bidirectional prediction (B) pictures. Such coding requires intra macroblocks refreshing techniques for channel error propagation resilience and for compliance with the accuracy requirements of the MPEG2 standard. This project gives an overview of the MPEG(More)
Dynamic light scattering performed on aqueous solutions of three sugars (glucose, maltose and sucrose) reveal a common pattern of sugar cluster formation with a narrow cluster size distribution. In each case, equilibrium clusters form whose size increases with increasing sugar content in an identical power law manner in advance of a common, critical-like,(More)
A new real time stability constraint for model predictive control is developed in this paper. Motivated by the dissipative system theory, the proposed stability condition is based on the controller trajectory and can be implemented on-the-fly to ensure the stability of MPC systems. The stability bound on the immediate-future values of manipulated variables(More)
In this paper, we examined 256 cases of financial failure and fraud occuring during the recent Vietnam’s chaotic years from 2007 to 2013, employing methods of categorical data analysis. Reported results suggest that the rent-seeking approach, or resource-based orientation, alone does not help explain the outcome of a business intention while the association(More)
