#### Stability Analysis Of A More General Class Of Systems With Delay-Dependent Coefficients, Chi Jin, Keqin Gu, Islam Boussaada, Silviu-Iulian Niculescu

*SIUE Faculty Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity*

This paper presents a systematic method to analyse the stability of systems with single delay in which the coefficient polynomials of the characteristic equation depend on the delay. Such systems often arise in, for example, life science and engineering systems. A method to analyze such systems was presented by Beretta and Kuang in a 2002 paper, but with some very restrictive assumptions. This work extends their results to the general case with the exception of some degenerate cases. It is found that a much richer behavior is possible when the restrictive assumptions are removed. The interval of interest for the ...

David Hand and Lásló Mérő both grapple with the occurrence of seemingly impossible events in these two popular science books. In this comparative review, I describe the two books, and explain why I prefer Hand's treatment of the impossible.

Curve Tracking Control Under State Constraints And Uncertainties, 2018 Louisiana State University

#### Curve Tracking Control Under State Constraints And Uncertainties, Robert Kelly Sizemore

*LSU Doctoral Dissertations*

We study a class of steering control problems for free-moving particles tracking a curve in the plane and also in a three-dimensional environment, which are central problems in robotics. In the two-dimensional case, we provide adaptive controllers for curve tracking under unknown curvatures and control uncertainty. The system dynamics include a nonlinear dependence on the curvature, and are coupled with an estimator for the unknown curvature to form the augmented error dynamics. This nonlinear dependence puts our curvature identification objective outside the scope of existing adaptive tracking and parameter identification results that were limited to cases where the unknown parameters ...

Non-Local Methods In Fracture Dynamics, 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

#### Non-Local Methods In Fracture Dynamics, Eyad Said

*LSU Doctoral Dissertations*

We first introduce a regularized model for free fracture propagation based on non-local potentials. We work within the small deformation setting and the model is developed within a state based peridynamic formulation. At each instant of the evolution we identify the softening zone where strains lie above the strength of the material. We show that deformation discontinuities associated with flaws larger than the length scale of non-locality $\delta$ can become unstable and grow. An explicit inequality is found that shows that the volume of the softening zone goes to zero linearly with the length scale of non-local interaction. This scaling ...

Spectra Of Quantum Trees And Orthogonal Polynomials, 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

#### Spectra Of Quantum Trees And Orthogonal Polynomials, Zhaoxia Wang

*LSU Doctoral Dissertations*

We investigate the spectrum of regular quantum-graph trees, where the edges are endowed with a Schr\"odinger operator with self-adjoint Robin vertex conditions. It is known that, for large eigenvalues, the Robin spectrum approaches the Neumann spectrum. In this research, we compute the lower Robin spectrum. The spectrum can be obtained from the roots of a sequence of orthogonal polynomials involving two variables. As the length of the quantum tree increases, the spectrum approaches a band-gap structure. We find that the lowest band tends to minus infinity as the Robin parameter increases, whereas the rest of the bands remain positive ...

Iteration With Stepsize Parameter And Condition Numbers For A Nonlinear Matrix Equation, 2018 Pusan National University

#### Iteration With Stepsize Parameter And Condition Numbers For A Nonlinear Matrix Equation, Syed M. Raza Shah Naqvi, Jie Meng, Hyun-Min Kim

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

In this paper, the nonlinear matrix equation $X^p+A^TXA=Q$, where $p$ is a positive integer, $A$ is an arbitrary $n\times n$ matrix, and $Q$ is a symmetric positive definite matrix, is considered. A fixed-point iteration with stepsize parameter for obtaining the symmetric positive definite solution of the matrix equation is proposed. The explicit expressions of the normwise, mixed and componentwise condition numbers are derived. Several numerical examples are presented to show the efficiency of the proposed iterative method with proper stepsize parameter and the sharpness of the three kinds of condition numbers.

#### United States Population Future Estimates And Long-Term Distribution, Sean P. Brogan

*DePaul Discoveries*

The population of the United States has always increased year over year. Even now with decreasing birth rates, the overall population continues to grow when looking at conventional models. The present study specifically examines what would happen to the U.S. population if we were to maintain the current birth and survival rates into the future. By 2050, our research shows that the U.S. population will become much older and cease to grow at all.
