      Brownian-like kinematics of ball milling for particulate structural modeling 

      Doumanidis, C. C.; Kaabi, H. A. Al; Alzaabi, A. S. M.; Gunduz, I. E.; Rebholz, Claus; Doumanidis, C. C. (2016)
      Ball milling motion has been previously studied through computationally expensive, off-line experimental video processing and numerical simulations by the discrete element method. This research establishes a more efficient ...

      Distributed function calculation and consensus using linear iterative strategies 

      Sundaram, S.; Hadjicostis, Christoforos N. (2008)
      Given an arbitrary network of interconnected nodes, we develop and analyze a distributed strategy that enables a subset of the nodes to calculate any given function of the node values. Our scheme utilizes a linear iteration ...

      Fault-tolerant computation in groups and semigroups: Applications to automata, dynamic systems and Petri nets 

      Hadjicostis, Christoforos N.; Verghese, G. C. (2002)
      The traditional approach to fault-tolerant computation has been via modular hardware redundancy. Although universal and simple, modular redundancy is inherently expensive and inefficient. By exploiting particular structural ...

      Ideal physical element representation from reduced bond graphs 

      Louca, Loucas S.; Stein, J. L. (2002)
      Previous research has demonstrated that bond graphs are a natural and convenient representation to implement energy-based metrics that evaluate the relative 'value' of energy elements in a dynamic system model. Bond graphs ...

      Influence of water model and nanotube rigidity on the density of water in carbon nanotubes 

      Alexiadis, A.; Kassinos, Stavros C. (2008)
      The density of water calculated through molecular dynamic simulations using different water models and rigid/flexible carbon nanotubes is studied. A previous equation, determined in an earlier work in order to correlate ...

      On the fixed point problem in the abstract rate distortion theory 

      Rezaei, F.; Ahmed, N. U.; Charalambous, Charalambos D. (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Coordinated Science Laboratory and Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering, 2006)
      This paper introduces a general framework for dealing with the subject of rate distortion or source coding with fidelity criterion, in Polish spaces. The problem is ad-dressed using a variational approach on the space of ...

      Systematic identification of decoupling in dynamic system models 

      Rideout, D. G.; Stein, J. L.; Louca, Loucas S. (2007)
      This paper proposes a technique to quantitatively and systematically search for decoupling among elements of a dynamic system model, and to partition models in which decoupling is found. The method can validate simplifying ...
