Quantitative measures of observability for stochastic systems
Subaşı, Yüksel; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
The observability measure based on the mutual information between the last state and the measurement sequence originally proposed by Mohler and Hwang (1988) is analyzed in detail and improved further for linear time invariant discrete-time Gaussian stochastic systems by extending the definition to the observability measure of a state sequence. By using the new observability measure it is shown that the unobservable states of the deterministic system have no effect on this measure and any observable part wit...

Nested structure of time consciousness and its dependence on mental time travel competence and episodic memory
Dural Özer, Özge; Sol, Ayhan; Michaelian, Kourken; Department of Philosophy (2013)
The main objective of this master thesis is to clarify the nested structure in time consciousness, depending on mental time travel and episodic memory. Time consciousness, mental time travel and episodic memory are connected, and function depending on each other. Mental time travel ability enables us to imagine personal future events. Episodic memory allows us to travel mentally into both past and future. Similarity between remembering the past and imagining the future indicates that episodic memory system ...
Active Control of Smart Fin Model for Aircraft Buffeting Load Alleviation Applications
Chen, Yong; Ulker, Fatma Demet; Nalbantoglu, Volkan; Wickramasinghe, Viresh; Zimcik, David; Yaman, Yavuz (2009-11-01)
Following the program to lest a hybrid actuation system for high-agility aircraft buffeting load alleviation oil the full-scale F/A-18 vertical fin structure, an investigation has been performed to understand the aerodynamic effects of high-speed vortical flows on the dynamic characteristics of vertical fin structures. Extensive wind-tunnel tests have been conducted on a scaled model fill integrated with piezoelectric actuators and accelerometers to measure file aft-tip vibration responses under various fre...
Supervisory control and formal methods for distributed systems
İnan, Kemal (1992-08-28)
A brief introductory exposure for logical discrete event system models is presented. Based on a specific version of this model tailored to supervisory control, some of the mainstream supervisory control problems are formulated in a unified framework. Formal methods used in software engineering has certain computational and structural similarities to supervisory control and unlike the latter, is closely connected to realistic and widespread practical applications. Formal specification, verification, impleme...
