Abstract: I will construct approximations to constrained infinite-horizon linear quadratic optimal control problems arising in model predictive control. Input and state trajectories will be parameterized as a linear combination of basis functions and the dynamics are approximated by a Galerkin approach. I will argue that the resulting optimization problems lead to inherent closed-loop stability and ...

Abstract: Single-molecule fluorescence has emerged more than two decades ago as a powerful tool to investigate biological processes at the molecular level. Its main advantage over traditional "bulk" techniques is the possibility to disentangle sample heterogeneity and stochasticity by either taking snapshots of the conformational state of individual molecules (proteins, DNA, etc.), or by following ...

The performance of analog integrated circuits is limited by the noise generated in its components. Some of this noise (thermal and shot noises) have a white spectrum, while others (dc offset, 1/f noise) are restricted to a narrow frequency range near dc. Several circuit techniques (correlated double sampling, chopping) exist for mitigating the effects of ... Read more about "System-Level Noise Filtering and Linearization Scheme"
