—Output regulation aims to achieve, in addition to closed-loop stability, asymptotic tracking and disturbance rejection for a class of reference inputs and disturbances. Thus, it poses a more challenging problem than stabilization. For over a decade, the nonlinear output regulation problem has been one of the focuses in nonlinear control research, and(More)
— While the output regulation problem for linear systems accommodates both bounded and unbounded exoge-nous signals, the existing formulation of the output regulation problem for nonlinear systems only allows bounded exogenous signals produced by an exosystem with a neurally stable equilibrium. In particular, when it comes to the robust output regulation(More)
The COL4A1 gene encodes the α1-chain of type IV collagen, which is ubiquitously expressed in basement membranes. Mutations in COL4A1 have been reported in autosomal-dominant porencephaly and in patients with symptomatic small vessel brain disease, inconstantly associated with eye defects. We have previously reported three COL4A1 mutations associated with a(More)
This study evaluated the injury severity profile of unilateral, frontal penetrating ballistic-like brain injury (PBBI) on neurofunctional outcome, blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability, and brain edema formation. The degree of injury severity was determined by the delivery of a water-pressure pulse designed to produce a temporary cavity by rapid (<40 ms)(More)
Various wireless networks have made the ambient radio frequency signals around the world. Wireless information and power transfer (WIPT) enables the devices to recycle energy from these ambient radio frequency signals and process information simultaneously. In this paper, we develop a WIPT protocol in two-way amplify-and-forward relaying channels, where two(More)
