In this paper we discuss structured [image omitted] control methods for large-scale interconnected systems. Based on a relaxation of Riccati equations, we derive some linear matrix inequality (LMI) conditions for sub-optimal ...
It is shown that two copies are enough to distinguish a complete basis of maximally entangled states in canonical form by constructing an explicit protocol. In particular, in such a protocol, no auxiliary system is needed ...
We show that any two different unitary operations acting on an arbitrary multipartite quantum system can be perfectly distinguished by local operations and classical communication when a finite number of runs is allowed. ...
In the lognormal forward Market model (LFM) framework, the specification for time-deterministic instantaneous volatility functions for state variable forward rates is required. In reality, only a discrete number of forward ...
Background. Perinatal factors, including gestational age and birth weight, influence the development of atopy in early life. However, the role of these factors in the development of asthma in later life among children who ...
The well-known absence-of-arbitrage condition NFLVR from the fundamental theorem of asset pricing splits into two conditions, called NA and NUPBR. We give a literature overview of several equivalent reformulations of NUPBR; ...
Recognition of protein folding patterns is an important step in protein structure and function predictions. Traditional sequence similarity-based approach fails to yield convincing predictions when proteins have low sequence ...
In this comment we discuss the problem of reconciling the linear efficiency of price returns with the long-memory of supply and demand. We present new evidence that shows that efficiency is maintained by a liquidity imbalance ...
Empirical evidence has suggested that, facing different trading strategies and complicated decision, the proportions of agents relying on particular strategies may stay at constant level or vary over time. This paper ...
This paper analyzes the dynamics of an explicit random process of prices and price expectations of finitely many assets in an economy with overlapping generations of heterogeneous consumers. They maximize expected utility ...
A simple and powerful micro-particle swarm optimizer (μPSO) is presented. For high dimensional optimization problems, the proposed μPSO needs only a small population to outperform the standard particle swarm optimizer (PSO) ...
