Constrained model predictive control: Stability and optimality
 AUTOMATICA
, 2000
"... Model predictive control is a form of control in which the current control action is obtained by solving, at each sampling instant, a finite horizon openloop optimal control problem, using the current state of the plant as the initial state; the optimization yields an optimal control sequence and t ..."

from an extensive literature essential principles that ensure stability and use these to present a concise characterization of most of the model predictive controllers that have been proposed in the literature. In some cases the finite horizon optimal control problem solved online is exactly
A Note on the Confinement Problem
, 1973
"... This not explores the problem of confining a program during its execution so that it cannot transmit information to any other program except its caller. A set of examples attempts to stake out the boundaries of the problem. Necessary conditions for a solution are stated and informally justified. ..."

Where the REALLY Hard Problems Are
 IN J. MYLOPOULOS AND R. REITER (EDS.), PROCEEDINGS OF 12TH INTERNATIONAL JOINT CONFERENCE ON AI (IJCAI91),VOLUME 1
, 1991
"... It is well known that for many NPcomplete problems, such as KSat, etc., typical cases are easy to solve; so that computationally hard cases must be rare (assuming P != NP). This paper shows that NPcomplete problems can be summarized by at least one "order parameter", and that the hard p ..."

The particel swarm: Explosion, stability, and convergence in a multidimensional complex space
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTION
"... The particle swarm is an algorithm for finding optimal regions of complex search spaces through interaction of individuals in a population of particles. Though the algorithm, which is based on a metaphor of social interaction, has been shown to perform well, researchers have not adequately explained ..."

Stability properties of constrained queueing systems and scheduling policies for maximum throughput in multihop radio networks
 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control
, 1992
"... AbstructThe stability of a queueing network with interdependent servers is considered. The dependency of servers is described by the definition of their subsets that can be activated simultaneously. Multihop packet radio networks (PRN’s) provide a motivation for the consideration of this system. We ..."

. We study the problem of scheduling the server activation under the constraints imposed by the dependency among them. The performance criterion of a scheduling policy m is its throughput that is characterized by its stability region C,, that is, the set of vectors of arrival rates for which the system
The file drawer problem and tolerance for null results
 Psychological Bulletin
, 1979
"... For any given research area, one cannot tell how many studies have been conducted but never reported. The extreme view of the "file drawer problem " is that journals are filled with the 5 % of the studies that show Type I errors, while the file drawers are filled with the 95 % of the stud ..."

, however, although no definitive solution to the problem is available, one can establish reasonable boundaries on the problem and estimate the degree of damage to any research conclusion that could be done by the file drawer problem. This advance in our ability to cope with the file drawer is an outgrowth
Smooth Stabilization Implies Coprime Factorization

This paper shows that coprime right factorizations exist for the input to state mapping of a continuous time nonlinear system provided that the smooth feedback stabilization problem be solvable for this system. In particular, it follows that feedback linearizable systems admit such factorizations. I ..."
