Dominating Manipulations in Voting with Partial Information
We consider manipulation problems when the manipulator only has partial information about the votes of the nonmanipulators. Such partial information is described by an information...

On point-to-point motion planning for underactuated space manipulator systems
In free-floating mode, space manipulator systems have their actuators turned off, and exhibit nonholonomic behavior due to angular momentum conservation. The system is underactua...
