Modelling dispersal of sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) larvae on Georges Bank: The influence of depthdistribution, planktonic duration and spawning seasonality
The giant sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) metapopulation on Georges Bank (GB) in the northwest Atlantic constitutes an economically important fishery, which is sustained by retention of planktonic larvae that are ... 
Explaining regional variability in copepod recruitment: Implications for a changing climate
Characterizing environmental effects on copepod production and their ecological roles is complicated by multiple physical (e.g. temperature) and biological (e.g. food, predation) factors controlling multiple aspects of ... 
How to build and use individualbased models (IBMs) as hypothesis testing tools
Traditional plankton models do not simulate the life history, physiology or phenology of mesozooplankton with sufficient realism to represent their ecological roles and associated environmental dependencies. In contrast, ... 
Estimating mortality: Clarifying assumptions and sources of uncertainty in vertical methods
Accurate estimates of stagedependent mortality rates are critical for understanding zooplankton dynamics. Existing methods for estimating mortality from survey data include assumptions that are not always evident, meaning ... 
Online stabilization of blockdiagonal recurrent neural networks
This paper deals with a discretetime recurrent neural network (DTRNN) with a blockdiagonal feedback weight matrix, called the blockdiagonal recurrent neural network (BDRNN), that allows a simplified approach to online ... 
Development of characteristic equations and robust stability analysis for SISO move suppressed and shifted DMC
New controller and closed loop transfer functions for move suppressed and shifted dynamic matrix control were derived in order to compare the controller robustness on several plants as a function of tuning parameters and ... 
Development of characteristic equations and robust stability analysis for MIMO move suppressed and shifted DMC
Discretetime controller and closedloop transfer functions were developed for move suppressed and the recently formulated mshifted multipleinputmultipleoutput (MIMO) dynamic matrix control (DMC). Using these transfer ... 
PID gain scheduling using fuzzy logic
A simple, yet robust and stable alternative to proportional, integral, derivative (PID) gain scheduling is developed using fuzzy logic. This fuzzy gain scheduling allows simple online duplication of PID control and the ... 
The LorenzKrishnamurthy slow manifold
The authors scale the fivemode model introduced by Lorenz and Krishnamurthy and show how explicit solutions may be obtained in the limit of small Rossby number by using the method of multiple scales. They thus obtain a ... 
Competition model for aperiodic stochastic resonance in a FitzhughNagumo model of cardiac sensory neurons
A model is presented to access the cause and effect between noisy threshold inputs and the average firing rate generated by neuron. The neural control in the heart in aperiodic stochastic resonance (ASR) was partially ... 
SISO extended predictive control  Formulation and the basic algorithm
A new predictive controller is developed that represents a significant change from conventional model predictive control. The method termed extended predictive control (EPC) uses one tuning parameter, the condition number ... 
On simplified predictive control as a generalization of leastsquares dynamic matrix control
Simplified predictive control (SPC) of a singleinput singleoutput control scheme is compared to the more sophisticated, leastsquares formulation of dynamic matrix control (DMC) and its movesuppressed variant (movesuppressed ... 
An asymptotic solution for evaluation of stresses in balanced and unbalanced adhesively bonded joints
Adhesively bonding is one of the most commonly and widely used joining methods in various engineering applications. Many fiberreinforced plastic (FRP) structural components nowadays are joined by adhesives. As a result ... 
Online optimization of fuzzyPID control of a thermal process
A constrained optimization of a simple fuzzyPID (PIDâ€”proportional integral derivative) system is designed for the online improvement of PID control performance during productive control runs. The cost function design ... 
Risk aversion predictive control
A qualitycontrolled predictive control method, suitable for control of fast, remote systems subject to significant communication delays, is developed. Each move is quality controlled in that it independently satisfies a ... 
"Smart" baroreception along the aortic arch, with reference to essential hypertension
An arterial model was used to show that the cumulative effects of wave reflections have a surprisingly pronounced effect on the pressure distribution in the root segment of the tree. Global arterial conditions play a role ... 
A continuous analysis of multiinput, multioutput predictive control
A continuous formulation and method of analysis is constructed for multiinput, multioutput (MIMO) predictive control and used to compare Dynamic Matrix Control (DMC) with Simplified Predictive Control (SPC). Approximate ... 
Exponential asymptotics with a small exponent
Analytic and numerical solutions are considered to a simple model problem which contains a surprisingly complicated solution structure. Asymptotic solutions are sought when a parameter that appears as an exponent in the ... 
KLTBased quality controlled compression of singlelead ECG
An electrocardiogram (ECG) compression algorithm based on a combination of the KarhunenLoeve transform (KLT) and multirate sampling is introduced. The use of multirate sampling reduces KLT computational times to those ... 
An alternate algorithm for computing Adomian polynomials in special cases
An alternate algorithm for computing Adomian polynomials in special cases was introduced. The algorithm could be extended for calculating Adomian polynomials in several variables. Analysis showed that this algorithm does ...
