The problem of guaranteed cost control for a class of networked control systems possessing uncertainties, network delays, and packet dropouts is solved in this paper. By means of introducing an auxiliary variable, a newly coupled, switched system model is derived first. Then, based on a predictive network control scheme, the conditions for guaranteed(More)
This correspondence considers the stability problem for a class of linear switched systems with time-varying delay in the sense of Hurwitz convex combination. The bound of derivative of the time-varying delay can be an unknown constant. It is concluded that the stability result for linear switched systems still holds for such systems with time-varying delay(More)
Left ventricular mass (LVM) is a highly heritable trait and an independent risk factor for all-cause mortality. So far, genome-wide association studies have not identified the genetic factors that underlie LVM variation, and the regulatory mechanisms for blood-pressure-independent cardiac hypertrophy remain poorly understood. Unbiased systems genetics(More)
Typically, autosomal dominant familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is caused by mutations in the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor or apolipoprotein B genes that result in defective clearance of plasma LDL by the liver, but a third gene (PCSK9), encoding a putative proprotein convertase, has recently been implicated. Two independent microarray studies(More)
In this paper, problems of stability and L<sub>2</sub>-gain for switched systems with time-varying delay and disturbance input are studied. Some subsystems can be unstable. By using an average dwell time approach incorporated with a piece-wise Lyapunov functional, sufficient conditions for exponential stability and weighted L<sub>2</sub>-gain of such(More)
