    In active noise control, adaptive approaches play an essential role when dealing with uncertainties and changes in noise and control path dynamics of sound propagation. This article is concerned with two new adaptive schemes. One is a direct adaptive approach which can explicitly update a feedforward controller with guaranteed stability on the assumption that the control path dynamics are known a ... View full abstract»

    Research in complex adaptive systems (CAS) has begun to achieve an understanding of complexity in natural systems as a phenomenon that emerges from the interaction of multiple, simple, but adaptive, agents. The computer experiments, or simulations, used in this research have led to the development of mathematical and computational techniques that are equally applicable to the design of distributed...

    The protection of civil structures, including their material contents and human occupants, is without doubt a worldwide priority of the most serious importance. Such protection may range from reliable operation and comfort, on the one hand, to survivability on the other. Examples of such structures leap to one's mind, and include buildings, offshore rigs, towers, roads, bridges, and pipelines. In ... View full abstract»

    Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) share common control problems with other air, land, and water unmanned vehicles. In addition to requiring high-dimensional and computationally intensive sensory data for real-time mission execution, power and communication limitations in an underwater environment make it more difficult to develop a control architecture for an AUV. In this article, the four typ... View full abstract»

    A nonlinear dynamical system with a chaotic attractor will produce motion on the attractor which has random-like properties. This observation leads to a very simple algorithm for bringing a discrete or continuous nonlinear dynamical system to a fixed point. Suppose that the system to be controlled is either naturally chaotic or that chaotic motion can be produced by means of open-loop control. Sup... View full abstract»
