    The incineration process transforms environmentally hazardous components of waste, such as aromatic hydrocarbons and organic solvents, into harmless compounds. Additionally, incineration plants convert the released combustion heat into steam and electricity. The steam can be used for industrial processes or district heating, and the electricity is usually fed into the national grid.This article de... View full abstract»

    This article describes an approach to documenting control programs, whereby the control program code is annotated with logical expressions describing the set of reachable program states. This approach constitutes the application of the Floyd-Hoare paradigm to control programs. It is shown that domain knowledge gathered by control theory about control-system specifications is applicable to developi... View full abstract»

    In this article we consider the objective of efficient transfer of electric en1 ergy between subsystems, where each 1 subsystem can generate, store, or conl sume energy. An application example is a multidomain system consisting of a fuelcell-based generating unit, batteries, super capacitors, and electric motors or generators; this topology is used in some electric cars. Depending on the operation... View full abstract»

    This article presents a broad overview of techniques, both analytical and technological, that are used in systems biology to analyze large-scale data sets. While focusing on the computational aspects, the associated biology of cell regulation is also discussed. Discussions are centered around two widely used high-throughput technologies, namely, DNA microarrays and MS-based proteomics. The biologi... View full abstract»

    In this article, Kalman filter using Newton's method for root finding is derived. We show that the one-step Kalman filter is given by a single iteration of Newton's method on the gradient of a quadratic objective function, and with a judiciously chosen initial guess. This derivation is different from those found in standard texts, since it provides a more general framework for recursive state esti... View full abstract»
