In this work, the concept of sensor management is introduced and stochastic dynamic programming based resource allocation approach is proposed to track multiple targets. The core of this approach is to use Lagrange relaxation for decreasing the state space dimension. By this approximation, the overall problem is separated into components instead of using joint Markov model to optimize large scale stochastic control problem. The aim of this study is to adaptively allocate radar resources in an optimal way in order to maintain track qualities for multi-target case. The radar is electronically steered antenna radar. Resource allocation is done only for tracking excluding the search beams. Adaptive target tracking is performed by Kalman filter. Problem is modeled as a set of controlled Markov chains each dedicated to one track. Time scale is divided into two levels that are called as micro management and macro management. During the thesis, we deal with macro management part that aims to construct a policy which is optimal for a given objective function under the resource constraints. Stochastic dynamic programming with constraints in the sense of [32] is the method used. In this thesis, five different scenarios are constructed and corresponding algorithms are confirmed by simulation results. The performances of the algorithms are also compared. Their performances are analyzed on the average number of update decision and average number of target drops in time horizon.

Stochastic modeling of biochemical systems with filtering and smoothing
Haksever, Merve; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Scientific Computing (2019)
Deterministic modeling approach is the traditional way of analyzing the dynamical behavior of a reaction network. However, this approach ignores the discrete and stochastic nature of biochemical processes. In this study, modeling approaches, stochastic simulation algorithms and their relationships to each other are investigated. Then, stochastic and deterministic modeling approaches are applied to biological systems, Lotka-Volterra prey-predator model, Michaelis-Menten enzyme kinetics and JACK-STAT signalin...
Improved state estimation for jump Markov linear systems
Orguner, Umut; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis presents a comprehensive example framework on how current multiple model state estimation algorithms for jump Markov linear systems can be improved. The possible improvements are categorized as: -Design of multiple model state estimation algorithms using new criteria. -Improvements obtained using existing multiple model state estimation algorithms. In the first category, risk-sensitive estimation is proposed for jump Markov linear systems. Two types of cost functions namely, the instantaneous an...
Dissimilarity maximization method for real-time routing of parts in random flexible manufacturing systems
Saygin, C; Kilic, SE (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-04-01)
This paper presents a dissimilarity maximization method (DMM) for real-time routing selection and compares it via simulation with typical priority rules commonly used in scheduling and control of flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs). DMM aims to reduce the congestion in the system by selecting a routing for each part among its alternative routings such that the overall dissimilarity among the selected routings is maximized. In order to evaluate the performance of DMM, a random FMS, where the product mix is...
Analytical modeling of a time-threshold based multi-guard bandwidth allocation scheme for cellular networks
Candan, Idil; Salamah, Muhammed (2009-05-28)
In this paper, the analytical modeling of a time-threshold based multi-guard bandwidth allocation scheme is presented using a two-dimensional markov chain. The main idea of the scheme is based on monitoring the elapsed real time of handoff calls and according to a time threshold (t(e)), a handoff call is either slightly-prioritized or fully-prioritized. A slightly-prioritized handoff call has higher priority than a new call and lower priority than a fully-prioritized handoff call. Also in this paper, the nu...
