    Many problems in systems and control, such as controller synthesis and state estimation, are often formulated as optimization problems. In many cases, the cost function incorporates variables that are used to model uncertainty, in addition to optimization variables, and this article employs uncertainty described as probabilistic variables. In a probabilistic setup, a cost value can only be guarant... View full abstract»

    Many systems can be represented using polynomial differential equations, particularly in process control, biotechnology, and systems biology [1], [2]. For example, models of chemical and biochemical reaction networks derived using the law of mass action have the form ẋ = Sv(k,x), (1) where x is a vector of concentrations, S is the stoichiometric matrix, and v is a vector of rate expression...

    As technology is evolving rapidly, the consumers of education systems, namely students, are exposed to more visual and audio media. Advertisements, computer games, movies, and all types of digital media are doing their best to attract young people's attention using the latest technologies. The question of whether or not this situation is beneficial for students is not discussed here. However, it i... View full abstract»
