Optimal Choice of the Kernel Function for the Parzen Kerneltype Density Estimators
(19750420)Let W<sub>p</sub><sup>(2)</sup> be the Sobolev space of probability density functions f(X) whose first derivative is absolutely continuous and whose second derivative is in L<sub>p</sub>( ∞ ,+ ∞), for p ∈ ... 
Optimal combat maneuvers of a nextgeneration jet fighter aircraft
(1998)This thesis deals with the optimization of four classes of combat maneuvers for a nextgeneration jet fighter aircraft: climb maneuvers, flytopoint maneuvers, popup attack maneuvers, and dive recovery maneuvers. For the ... 
Optimal compensation and the circle condition
(1971)A desirable property of an optimal system with full state feedback was shown by Kalman to be satisfaction of a circle condition in the A(jw) plane where A(s) is the loop gain function (return ratio) of the optimal system. ... 
Optimal contracts for trade restrictions
(1993)This paper addresses the question of how the government should elicit cost information from a high or low domestic industry to determine socially optimal levels of imports. The results are shown to depend on whether firms ... 
Optimal control of a class of realtime computational systems
(1991)In many computational systems, tasks comprising numerical or symbolic data arrive at a processor periodically. Processing of the $i\sp{th}$ task has to stop before processing of the ($i$ + 1)$\sp{th}$ task begins, causing ... 
Optimal Control of Flow and Transport Equation Using Discontinuous Galerkin Methods
(20160331)This thesis analyzes the accuracy of discontinuous Galerkin methods for solving optimal control problems for flow and transport equations. I derive the optimality conditions for each optimal control problem and I derive ... 
Optimal control of ship maneuvers for course change, sidestep, and collision avoidance
(1999)We consider a ship subject to kinematic, dynamic, and moment equations and steered via the rudder under the assumptions that the rudder angle and rudder angle time rate are subject to upper and lower bounds. We formulate ... 
Optimal control of time evolution systems: Controllability investigations and numerical algorithms
(1995)Optimal control problems for partial differential equations of evolution, mostly of parabolic type, are considered. The means of control are a nonhomogeneous boundary condition or forcing term. A hierarchical control problem ... 
Optimal control with incomplete state measurements
(1969)This thesis considers the problem of designing a controller for a linear plant, which, using output measurements only, will make the plant state variables follow optimally any input signal belonging to a known class of ... 
Optimal Convergence Rates Results for Linear Inverse Problems in Hilbert Spaces
(2016)In this article, we prove optimal convergence rates results for regularization methods for solving linear illposed operator equations in Hilbert spaces. The results generalizes existing convergence rates results on ... 
Optimal design problems for quasidisks and partially clamped drums: Existence, symmetrization, and numerical methods
(1997)It is shown that the class of quasidisks in the complex plane, with fixed quasicircle constant and area, is compact in both the Hausdorff metric and in the sense of Caratheodory convergence. Compactness for chordarc domains ... 
Optimal Detection Using Bilinear Time Frequency and Time Scale Representations
(19951220)Bilinear timefrequency representations (TFRs) and timescale representations (TSRs) are potentially very useful for detecting a nonstationary signal in the presence of nonstationary noise or interference. As quadratic ... 
Optimal digital communication of analog signals
(20050301)In this paper, the problem of optimally communicating analog sources using a bandwidth and power limited digital system is considered. We propose and analyze optimal combined sourcechannel coding schemes that jointly ... 
Optimal Dynamic Production Policy: The Case of a Large Oil Field in Saudi Arabia
(2004)We model the optimal dynamic oil production decisions for a stylized oilfield resembling the largest developed light oil field in Saudi Arabia, Ghawar. We use data from a number of sources to estimate the cost and revenue ...

(2004)We model the optimal dynamic oil production decisions for a stylized oilfield resembling the largest developed light oil field in Saudi Arabia, Ghawar. We use data from a number of sources to estimate the cost and revenue ... 
OPTIMAL ESTIMATION FOR BANDLIMITED SIGNALS
(1979)The problem of estimation for bandlimited signals is investigated. The desired estimate is based on a finite number of time samples taken from a measurement interval of length T(,M). With no additional information, the ... 
Optimal Kernels for Nonstationary Spectral Estimation
(19950220)Current theories of a timevarying spectrum of a nonstationary process all involve, either by definition or by difficulties in estimation, an assumption that the signal statistics vary slowly over time. This restrictive ... 
Optimal Length of Conformational Transition Region in Protein Search for Targets on DNA
(2017)The starting point of many fundamental biological processes is associated with protein molecules finding and recognizing specific sites on DNA. However, despite a large number of experimental and theoretical studies on ... 
Optimal Matrix Multiplication on Fault Tolerant VLSI Arrays
(198902)A faulttolerant array for matrix multiplication that explicitly incorporates mechanisms for easy testability and reconfigurability is described. All signals in the array travel only a constant distance (independent of ...
