Moments, smoothness and optimization of wavelet systems
This dissertation develops several new results on wavelet design using both traditional and new optimization criteria. We consider three different design problems: two problems address explicit optimization of function ...
Electrical and thermal modeling of electrostatic discharge protection structures for submicron VLSI
A modeling technique has been developed which simulates a semiconductor device subjected to electrostatic discharge (ESD) stress according to the human body model (HBM). To accomplish this, a computer program was developed ...
Utilizing parallel optimization in computational fluid dynamics
General problems of interest in computational fluid dynamics are investigated by means of optimization. Specifically, in the first part of the dissertation, a method of optimal incremental function approximation is developed ...
Wavelets in the solution of thermal radiative transfer equation
The wavelet bases approximation idea which is first proposed by Daubechies is successfully introduced in both nongray and linear anisotropic scattering radiation fields. In nongray medium, wavelet bases are used in frequency ...
A new method for solving the kinematics of multifingered grasping and general redundant manipulators: A task oriented approach
Beside our arms, it is our hands that help us to perform tasks. At first glance, we seems to move our arms and use our hands naturally. On closer inspection, however, we find that both our arms and hands are redundant ...
Dynamic fault detection and intelligent fault tolerance for robotics
As robotics has begun to spread from the accessible arenas of laboratories and industry into more dangerous and remote environments such as space or hazardous waste remediation tanks, the need for autonomous and intelligent ...
