    The May 1987 issue of the IEEE Grid presents a systematic way to generate three-word “buzz phrases” that can be inserted in selected places for reports, proposals, and general correspondence. In the modern world of corporate plans and proposals, it is necessary that a certain amount of obfuscation be built-in to offer some small relief from the constant barrage of clear, concise thou...

    The 21st century has brought with it a strong push in the automotive industry to develop energy technologies that can better address the global challenges posed by the depletion of finite fossil fuel resources and the pollution caused by using these fossil fuels as an energy resource. The two key words dominating automotive powertrain research today, therefore, are efficiency and emissions-There i... View full abstract»

    This article has dealt with the modeling and control of a class of aerial robots capable of interacting with the environment to accomplish robotic operations midair rather than being constrained to the ground. Discussed in detail are the design of hybrid force and position control laws for a ducted fan aeriaI vehicle. Particular attention has been placed on keeping track of how the stability prope...

    As networked dynamical systems appear around us at an increasing rate, questions concerning how to manage and control such systems are becoming more important. Examples include multiagent robotics, distributed sensor networks, interconnected manufacturing chains, and data networks. In response to this growth, a significant body of work has emerged focusing on how to organize such networks to facil... View full abstract»

    The large amount of data available for analysis and management raises the need for defining, determining, and extracting meaningful information from the data. Hence in scientific, engineering, and economics studies, the practice of clustering data arises naturally when sets of data have to be divided into subgroups with the aim of possibly deducting common features for data belonging to the same s...

    It is common to encounter proposed solutions to analysis problems posed in other fields that ignore the methodologies, results, and tools published in the control literature. Below is an example where a result adopted from a robust control paper shows that a proposed approach for analyzing a metabolic network can produce misleading results. View full abstract»

    A necessary step in the design of an effective control system is to understand its dynamics. It is not uncommon for a well-trained control engineer to use such an understanding to redesign the system to become easier to control, which requires an even deeper understanding of how the components of a system influence its overall dynamics. In this issue Henry C. Fu and Kam K. Leang discuss the differ... View full abstract»
