A hierarchy of LMI inner approximations of the set of stable polynomials
Exploiting spectral properties of symmetric banded Toeplitz matrices, we describe simple sufficient conditions for positivity of a trigonometric polynomial formulated as linear ma...

Fast computation of minimal elementary decompositions of metabolic flux vectors
The concept of elementary flux vector is valuable in a number of applications of metabolic engineering. For instance, in metabolic flux analysis, each admissible flux vector ca...

Distributed dynamic programming for discrete-time stochastic control, and idempotent algorithms
Previously, idempotent methods have been found to be extremely fast for solution of dynamic programming equations associated with deterministic control problems. The original meth...

Sequential linear quadratic control of bilinear parabolic PDEs based on POD model reduction
We present a framework to solve a finite-time optimal control problem for parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs) with diffusivity-interior actuators, which is motivate...

Interval observers for linear time-invariant systems with disturbances
It is shown that, for any time-invariant exponentially stable linear system with additive disturbances, time-varying exponentially stable interval observers can be constructed. Th...
