Supervisory control problems are formulated in terms of a process model where the mechanism of control is expressed in terms of an algebraic operator with the plant and supervision processes as its arguments. The solution subspaces for supervisory processes restrict the observation and the control capability of supervision. The main result corresponds to decentralized marked supervision under partial observations, and specific cases are derived from this result in a unified, algebraic way. The result and its derivation demonstrate the relative simplicity of the algebraic process formulation.

 Sensitivity analysis approach for reduced-order approximations of optimal control problems governed by Burgers equation Akman, Tuğba (Wiley, 2016-12-01) The reduced-order model of the optimal control problem governed by Burgers equation is derived using the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) method. The reduced-order solution depending on parameters, which are different from the nominal values, may not be accurate if the POD basis functions depending on the nominal values are used to derive the reduced-order model. It is known that Burgers equation is sensitive to the perturbations in the diffusion term, so we use the sensitivity information to improve t...
 A novel two-step pseudo-response based adaptive harmonic balance method for dynamic analysis of nonlinear structures Sert, Onur; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (Elsevier BV, 2019-09-01) Harmonic balance method (HBM) is one of the most popular and powerful methods, which is used to obtain response of nonlinear vibratory systems in frequency domain. The main idea of the method is to express the response of the system in Fourier series and converting the nonlinear differential equations of motion into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations. System response can be obtained by solving this nonlinear equation set in terms of the unknown Fourier coefficients. The accuracy of the solution is great...
 Properly Handling Complex Differentiation in Optimization and Approximation Problems Candan, Çağatay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-03-01) Functions of complex variables arise frequently in the formulation of signal processing problems. The basic calculus rules on differentiation and integration for functions of complex variables resemble, but are not identical to, the rules of their real variable counterparts. On the contrary, the standard calculus rules on differentiation, integration, series expansion, and so on are the special cases of the complex analysis with the restriction of the complex variable to the real line. The goal of this lect...
 A frequency domain nonparametric identification method for nonlinear structures: Describing surface method Karaagacli, Taylan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01) In this paper a new method called 'Describing Surface Method' (DSM) is developed for nonparametric identification of a localized nonlinearity in structural dynamics. The method makes use of the Nonlinearity Matrix concept developed in the past by using classical describing function theory, which assumes that nonlinearity depends mainly on the response amplitude and frequency dependence is negligible for almost all of the standard nonlinear elements. However, this may not always be the case for complex nonli...
 A finite field framework for modeling, analysis and control of finite state automata Reger, Johann; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Informa UK Limited, 2004-09-01) In this paper, we address the modeling, analysis and control of finite state automata, which represent a standard class of discrete event systems. As opposed to graph theoretical methods, we consider an algebraic framework that resides on the finite field F-2 which is defined on a set of two elements with the operations addition and multiplication, both carried out modulo 2. The key characteristic of the model is its functional completeness in the sense that it is capable of describing most of the finite st...
