A Novel Chebyshev Wavelet Method For Solving Fractional-Order Optimal Control Problems, Ghodsieh Ghanbari 2022 Mississippi State University

A Novel Chebyshev Wavelet Method For Solving Fractional-Order Optimal Control Problems, Ghodsieh Ghanbari

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis presents a numerical approach based on generalized fractional-order Chebyshev wavelets for solving fractional-order optimal control problems. The exact value of the Riemann– Liouville fractional integral operator of the generalized fractional-order Chebyshev wavelets is computed by applying the regularized beta function. We apply the given wavelets, the exact formula, and the collocation method to transform the studied problem into a new optimization problem. The convergence analysis of the proposed method is provided. The present method is extended for solving fractional-order, distributed-order, and variable-order optimal control problems. Illustrative examples are considered to show the advantage of this method in comparison ...


Data And Algorithmic Modeling Approaches To Count Data, Andraya Hack 2022 Murray State University

Data And Algorithmic Modeling Approaches To Count Data, Andraya Hack

Honors College Theses

Various techniques are used to create predictions based on count data. This type of data takes the form of a non-negative integers such as the number of claims an insurance policy holder may make. These predictions can allow people to prepare for likely outcomes. Thus, it is important to know how accurate the predictions are. Traditional statistical approaches for predicting count data include Poisson regression as well as negative binomial regression. Both methods also have a zero-inflated version that can be used when the data has an overabundance of zeros. Another procedure is to use computer algorithms, also known as ...


Model Based Force Estimation And Stiffness Control For Continuum Robots, Vincent A. Aloi 2022 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Model Based Force Estimation And Stiffness Control For Continuum Robots, Vincent A. Aloi

Doctoral Dissertations

Continuum Robots are bio-inspired structures that mimic the motion of snakes, elephant trunks, octopus tentacles, etc. With good design, these robots can be naturally compliant and miniaturizable, which makes Continuum Robots ideal for traversing narrow complex environments. Their flexible design, however, prevents us from using traditional methods for controlling and estimating loading on rigid link robots.

In the first thrust of this research, we provided a novel stiffness control law that alters the behavior of an end effector during contact. This controller is applicable to any continuum robot where a method for sensing or estimating tip forces and pose exists ...


Path Planning And Flight Control Of Drones For Autonomous Pollination, Chapel R. Rice 2022 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Path Planning And Flight Control Of Drones For Autonomous Pollination, Chapel R. Rice

Masters Theses

The decline of natural pollinators necessitates the development of novel pollination technologies. In this thesis, a drone-enabled autonomous pollination system (APS) that consists of five primary modules: environment sensing, flower perception, path planning, flight control, and pollination mechanisms is proposed. These modules are highly dependent upon each other, with each module relying on inputs from the other modules. This thesis focuses on approaches to the path planning and flight control modules. Flower perception is briefly demonstrated developing a map of flowers using results from previous work. With that map of flowers, APS path planning is defined as a variant of ...


Vertical Take-Off And Landing Control Via Dual-Quaternions And Sliding Mode, Joshua Sonderegger 2022 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Vertical Take-Off And Landing Control Via Dual-Quaternions And Sliding Mode, Joshua Sonderegger

PhD Dissertations and Master's Theses

The landing and reusability of space vehicles is one of the driving forces into renewed interest in space utilization. For missions to planetary surfaces, this soft landing has been most commonly accomplished with parachutes. However, in spite of their simplicity, they are susceptible to parachute drift. This parachute drift makes it very difficult to predict where the vehicle will land, especially in a dense and windy atmosphere such as Earth. Instead, recent focus has been put into developing a powered landing through gimbaled thrust. This gimbaled thrust output is dependent on robust path planning and controls algorithms. Being able to ...

Contributions To The Teaching And Learning Of Fluid Mechanics, Ashwin Vaidya 2021 Montclair State University

Contributions To The Teaching And Learning Of Fluid Mechanics, Ashwin Vaidya

Department of Mathematics Facuty Scholarship and Creative Works

This issue showcases a compilation of papers on fluid mechanics (FM) education, covering different sub topics of the subject. The success of the first volume [1] prompted us to consider another follow-up special issue on the topic, which has also been very successful in garnering an impressive variety of submissions. As a classical branch of science, the beauty and complexity of fluid dynamics cannot be overemphasized. This is an extremely well-studied subject which has now become a significant component of several major scientific disciplines ranging from aerospace engineering, astrophysics, atmospheric science (including climate modeling), biological and biomedical science and engineering ...


Smooth Global Approximation For Continuous Data Assimilation, Kenneth R. Brown 2021 CUNY Hunter College

Smooth Global Approximation For Continuous Data Assimilation, Kenneth R. Brown

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis develops the finite element method, constructs local approximation operators, and bounds their error. Global approximation operators are then constructed with a partition of unity. Finally, an application of these operators to data assimilation of the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations is presented, showing convergence of an algorithm in all Sobolev topologies.


Optimal Stopping Problems For A Family Of Continuous-Time Markov Processes, Héctor Jasso-Fuentes, Jose-Luis Menaldi, Fidel Vásquez-Rojas 2021 CINVESTAV-IPN

Optimal Stopping Problems For A Family Of Continuous-Time Markov Processes, Héctor Jasso-Fuentes, Jose-Luis Menaldi, Fidel Vásquez-Rojas

Mathematics Faculty Research Publications

In this paper we study the well-know optimal stopping problem applied to a general family of continuous-time Markov process. The approach to follow is merely analytic and it is based on the characterization of stopping problems through the study of a certain variational inequality; namely one solution of this inequality will coincide with the optimal value of the stopping problem. In addition, by means of this characterization, it is possible to find the so-named continuation region, and as a byproduct obtaining the optimal stopping time. The most of the material is based on the semigroup theory, infinitesimal generators and resolvents ...


Lecture 09: Hierarchically Low Rank And Kronecker Methods, Rio Yokota 2021 Tokyo Institute of Technology

Lecture 09: Hierarchically Low Rank And Kronecker Methods, Rio Yokota

Mathematical Sciences Spring Lecture Series

Exploiting structures of matrices goes beyond identifying their non-zero patterns. In many cases, dense full-rank matrices have low-rank submatrices that can be exploited to construct fast approximate algorithms. In other cases, dense matrices can be decomposed into Kronecker factors that are much smaller than the original matrix. Sparsity is a consequence of the connectivity of the underlying geometry (mesh, graph, interaction list, etc.), whereas the rank-deficiency of submatrices is closely related to the distance within this underlying geometry. For high dimensional geometry encountered in data science applications, the curse of dimensionality poses a challenge for rank-structured approaches. On the other ...


Analysis Of Boundary Observability Of Strongly Coupled One-Dimensional Wave Equations With Mixed Boundary Conditions, Wilson Dennis Horner 2021 Western Kentucky University

Analysis Of Boundary Observability Of Strongly Coupled One-Dimensional Wave Equations With Mixed Boundary Conditions, Wilson Dennis Horner

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

*see note below

In control theory, the time it takes to receive a signal after it is sent is referred to as the observation time. For certain types of materials, the observation time to receive a wave signal differs depending on a variety of factors, such as material density, flexibility, speed of the wave propagation, etc. Suppose we have a strongly coupled system of two wave equations describing the longitudinal vibrations on a piezoelectric beam of length L. These two wave equations have non-identical wave propagation speeds c1 and c2. First, we prove the exact observability inequality with the optimal ...


Application Of Optimal Control Theory To A Malaria Model, Cassidy Hill 2021 Murray State University

Application Of Optimal Control Theory To A Malaria Model, Cassidy Hill

Murray State Theses and Dissertations

With malaria still prevalent and considered to be one of the most devastating infectious diseases in the world, many scientific efforts have been made to reduce its impact. One such effort includes the construction of mathematical models. Mathematical models can be used to analyze malaria transmission dynamics in the human population. The development of these models allows researchers to consider the control measures necessary to reduce the prevalence of malaria infection and possibly eliminate it.

The model presented in this thesis will provide the relationship of female Anopheles mosquitoes and insecticide treated paint acting as the control. A deterministic system ...

Introduce Gâteaux And Frêchet Derivatives In Riesz Spaces, Abdullah Aydın, Erdal Korkmaz

Applications and Applied Mathematics: An International Journal (AAM)

In this paper, the Gâteaux and Frêchet differentiations of functions on Riesz space are introduced without topological structure. Thus, we aim to study Gâteaux and Frêchet differentiability functions in vector lattice by developing topology-free techniques, and also, we give some relations with other kinds of operators.
