      An inverse method to assign receptances by using classical vibration absorbers 

      Zhu, J.; Mottershead, J. E.; Kyprianou, Andreas (2009)
      The classical mass-spring absorber can be thought of as a very simple structural modification. In this paper the inverse problem of assigning receptances to a dynamic system by using one or more simple mass-spring absorbers ...

      Monitoring discrete event systems using Petri net embeddings 

      Hadjicostis, Christoforos N.; Verghese, G. C. (1999)
      In this paper we discuss a methodology for monitoring failures and other activity in discrete event systems that are described by Petri nets. Our method is based on embedding the given Petri net model in a larger Petri net ...
