An elementary nonlinear beam theory with finite buckling deformation properties
(Siam Publications, 2002-04)
A simple nonlinear beam model is derived from basic principles. The assumption upon which the derivation is based is that axial motions are of second order compared with transverse motions of the beam. The existence of ...
Robust optimal switching control for nonlinear systems
(Siam Publications, 2002-09)
We formulate a robust optimal control problem for a general nonlinear system with finitely many admissible control settings and with costs assigned to switching of controls. e formulate the problem both in an L-2-gain/dissipative ...
Convergence theorems for intermediate problems. II
(Cambridge University Press, 2002)
Convergence theorems for the practical eigenvector free methods of Gay and Goerisch are obtained under a variety of hypotheses, so that our theorems apply to both traditional boundary-value problems and atomic problems. ...
