On a Class of Minimum Energy Controls Related to Spline Functions
The problem of determining a minimum energy control for a dynamically interconnected set of p single-input single-output finite-dimensional linear time-varying dynamical systems, for which the outputs are constrained to ...
The Effect of Intersymbol Interference on the Performance of a Digital FM System
The error performance of a digital FM system is studied in the presence of additive Gaussian noise. The digital system considered is a conventional one employing a voltage-controlled oscillator as the modulator and a ...
Application of a Frequency Domain Prony Method to Wide Bandwidth Radar Signature Classification
A frequency domain Prony approach is presented for extracting features of return signals from targets illuminated by wide bandwidth (short pulse) radar. Theoretical details pertaining to this approach are described in a ...
Sequential gradient-restoration algorithm for optimal control problems with general boundary conditions
This thesis considers the numerical solution of two classes of optimal control problems, called Problem P1 and Problem P2 for easy identification. Problem P1 involves a functional I subject to differential constraints and ...

Study of the Equivalent Electron Drift Field Characteristics in LiNb0<sub>3</sub> by Phase Holography
An analysis of the diffraction efficiency of photorefractive holograms in ferroelectric crystals is shown to provide a novel technique for determining the nature and magnitude of the equivalent electron drift field. For ...
Computation of a Unimodular Matrix
An algorithm for computing a unimodular matrix U(λ) satisfying the equation [A(λ) B(λ)] U(λ) = [1 0] is presented where A(λ) and B(λ) are relatively left prime polynomial matrices. ...
An Algorithm to Factor Polynomial Matrices
A new algorithm for factoring polynomial matrices, based on concept of elementary factors, is presented in this report. This algorithm does not use numerically unsatisfactory Euclidean type operations.
APL Programs for Singular Value Decomposition and Generalized Eigenvalue Problems
