Dental caries is a common oral bacterial infectious disease of global concern. Prevention and treatment of caries requires control of the dental plaque formed by pathogens such as Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus. Pleurocidin, produced by Pleuronectes americanus, is an antimicrobial peptide that exerts broad-spectrum activity against(More)
In order to accommodate actuator failures which are uncertain in time, pattern and value, we propose two adaptive backstepping control schemes for parametric strict feedback systems. Firstly a basic design scheme on the basis of existing approaches is considered. It is analyzed that, when actuator failures occur, transient performance of the adaptive system(More)
Dental caries and pulpal diseases are common oral bacterial infectious diseases. Controlling and reducing the causative pathogens, such as Streptococcus mutans and Enterococcus faecalis, is a key step toward prevention and treatment of the two diseases. Chrysophsin-1 is a cationic antimicrobial peptide having broad-spectrum bactericidal activity against(More)
It is both theoretically and practically important to investigate the problem of accommodating infinite number of actuator failures or faults in controlling uncertain systems. However, there is still no result available in developing adaptive controllers to address this problem. In this paper, a new adaptive failure/fault compensation control scheme is(More)
