      A Class of C2Piecewise Quintic Polynomials 

      Papamichael, Nicolas; Worsey, A. J. (1980)
      A new class of C2piecewise quintic interpolatory polynomials is defined. It is shown that this new class contains a number of interpolatory functions which present practical advantages, when compared with the conventional ...

      Discrete-time Adaptive Mixing Control with stability-preserving interpolation: The output regulation problem 

      Baldi, S.; Ioannou, Petros A.; Mosca, E. (2011)
      The main result of this paper is the extension of the Adaptive Mixing Control (AMC) approach, to the discrete-time setting. The stability and robustness properties of the adaptive mixing control scheme are analyzed. It is ...

      Extrapolation of subsampling distribution estimators: The i.i.d. and strong mixing cases 

      Bertail, Patrice; Politis, Dimitris Nicolas (2001)
      Politis & Romano (1994) proposed a general subsampling methodology for the construction of large-sample confidence regions for an arbitrary parameter under minimal conditions. Nevertheless, the subsampling distribution ...

      Fast cloth animation on walking avatars 

      Vassilev, T.; Spanlang, B.; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L. (2001)
      This paper describes a fast technique for animating clothing on walking humans. It exploits a mass-spring cloth model but applies a new velocity directional modification approach to overcome its super-elasticity. The ...

      A matrix decomposition RBF algorithm: Approximation of functions and their derivatives 

      Karageorghis, Andreas; Chen, C. S.; Smyrlis, Yiorgos-Sokratis (2007)
      We propose an efficient algorithm for the approximation of functions and their derivatives using radial basis functions (RBFs). The interpolation points are placed on concentric circles and the resulting matrix has a block ...

      Modeling of traffic flow of automated vehicles 

      Li, K.; Ioannou, Petros A. (2004)
      With the development of near term automatic vehicles following concepts such as intelligent cruise control (ICC) and cooperative driving, vehicles will be able to automatically follow each other in the longitudinal direction. ...

      N-to-Δ electromagnetic-transition form factors from lattice QCD 

      Alexandrou, Constantia; De Forcrand, P.; Neff, H.; Negele, J. W.; Schroers, W.; Tsapalis, Antonios (2005)
      The magnetic dipole (M1), the electric quadrupole (E2), and the Coulomb quadrupole (C2) amplitudes for γN → Δ are calculated in quenched lattice QCD. Using a new method, which combines an optimal choice of interpolating ...

      Optimized interpolations and nonlinearity in numerical studies of woodwind instruments 

      Skouroupathis, A.; Panagopoulos, Haralambos G. (2005)
      We study the impedance spectra of woodwind instruments with arbitrary axisymmetric geometry. We perform piecewise interpolations of the instruments' profile, using interpolating functions amenable to analytic solutions of ...
