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 ..."

Optimization Flow Control, I: Basic Algorithm and Convergence
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 1999
"... We propose an optimization approach to flow control where the objective is to maximize the aggregate source utility over their transmission rates. We view network links and sources as processors of a distributed computation system to solve the dual problem using gradient projection algorithm. In thi ..."

The program dependence graph and its use in optimization
 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems
, 1987
"... In this paper we present an intermediate program representation, called the program dependence graph (PDG), that makes explicit both the data and control dependence5 for each operation in a program. Data dependences have been used to represent only the relevant data flow relationships of a program. ..."

. Control dependence5 are introduced to analogously represent only the essential control flow relationships of a program. Control dependences are derived from the usual control flow graph. Many traditional optimizations operate more efficiently on the PDG. Since dependences in the PDG connect
A Unified Framework for Hybrid Control: Model and Optimal Control Theory
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUTOMATIC CONTROL
, 1998
"... Complex natural and engineered systems typically possess a hierarchical structure, characterized by continuousvariable dynamics at the lowest level and logical decisionmaking at the highest. Virtually all control systems todayfrom flight control to the factory floorperform computercoded chec ..."

for synthesizing hybrid controllers for hybrid plants in an optimal control framework. In particular, we demonstrate the existence of optimal (relaxed) and nearoptimal (precise) controls and derive "generalized quasivariational inequalities" that the associated value function satisfies. We summarize
Optimizing Search Engines using Clickthrough Data
, 2002
"... This paper presents an approach to automatically optimizing the retrieval quality of search engines using clickthrough data. Intuitively, a good information retrieval system should present relevant documents high in the ranking, with less relevant documents following below. While previous approaches ..."

Optimal control of execution costs
 JOURNAL OF FINANCIAL MARKETS 1 (1998) 1—50
, 1998
"... We derive dynamic optimal trading strategies that minimize the expected cost of trading a large block of equity over a fixed time horizon. Specifically, given a fixed block SM of shares to be executed within a fixed finite number of periods , and given a priceimpact function that yields the executi ..."

Unrealistic optimism about future life events.
 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,
, 1980
"... Two studies investigated the tendency of people to be unrealistically optimistic about future life events. In Study 1, 258 college students estimated how much their own chances of experiencing 42 events differed from the chances of their classmates. Overall, they rated their own chances to be above ..."

"... This paper presents control and coordination algorithms for groups of vehicles. The focus is on autonomous vehicle networks performing distributed sensing tasks where each vehicle plays the role of a mobile tunable sensor.

Efficiently computing static single assignment form and the control dependence graph
 ACM TRANSACTIONS ON PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES AND SYSTEMS
, 1991
"... In optimizing compilers, data structure choices directly influence the power and efficiency of practical program optimization. A poor choice of data structure can inhibit optimization or slow compilation to the point that advanced optimization features become undesirable. Recently, static single ass ..."
