Estimating the change point of the parameter vector of multivariate Poisson processes monitored by a multi-attribute T 2 control chart, Article International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology ; Volume 64, Issue 9-12 , February , 2013 , Pages 1625-1642 ; 02683768 (ISSN) ; Khedmati, M ; Sharif University of Technology
When a control chart signals an out-of-control condition, knowing when the process has really changed (the change point) accelerates the identification of the source of special causes and makes the corrective measures to be taken sooner. In this paper, a new multi-attribute T 2 control chart based on two transformation methods is initially proposed to monitor the parameter vector of multi-attribute Poisson processes. Then, the maximum likelihood estimators (MLE) of the process change point designed for both linear trend and step change disturbances are derived. Next, using Monte Carlo simulation, we show the performances of the proposed estimators are satisfactory. Finally, through...

The problem of finding the optimal node density for reconstructing a stochastic signal from its noisy samples in sensor networks is considered. The signal could be nonstationary and nonbandlimited. A weight is assigned to each location that indicates the relative importance of the signal at that location. It is shown that when the number of samples is very large, the optimal density of the samples at each location is proportional to the square root of the weight associated to that location
Modification of square root formula for approximate estimation of diffusion coefficient of particulate adsorbents, Article ICCCE 2010 - 2010 International Conference on Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Proceedings, 1 August 2010 through 3 August 2010, Kyoto ; 2010 , Pages 110-113 ; 9781424477647 (ISBN) ; Grayeli, F ; Tayyebi, A ; Khanchi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
The well known square root formula for the kinetics of adsorption by spherical particle U(t)=6/r0(Dt/π)1/2 is only valid in the early stage of adsorption (U(t) ≤ 0.3), where U(t) shows fractional attainment to the equilibrium. Present study shows that with a little manipulation of this formula, its application range can be extended to U (t) ≤ 0.95. The suggested formula U(t)=6/r0(Dt/π)1/2 -3Dt/r0 2 in addition of simplicity, has higher accuracy than both square root and Vermeulen's formulas

We consider the fundamental limits of reliable communication over a two-state compound channel when the state of the channel needs to be masked. Our model is closely related to an area of study known as covert communication, a setting in which the transmitter wishes to communicate to legitimate receiver(s) while ensuring that the communication is not detected by an adversary. Our main contribution is the establishment of upper and lower bounds on the throughput-key length region when the constraint that quantifies how much the states are masked is defined to be the total variation distance between the channel output distributions of the two states. When length of the key is sufficiently...

In multi-attribute process monitoring, when a control chart signals an out-of-control condition indicating the existence of a special cause, knowing when the process has really changed (the change point) accelerates the identification of the source of the special cause and makes the corrective measures to be employed sooner. This, of course, results in a considerable amount of savings in time and money. Since many real world multi-attribute processes are Poisson and most process changes are step-change, a new method is proposed, in this paper, to derive the maximum likelihood estimator of the time of a step-change in the mean vector of multivariate Poisson processes. In this method, two...
A new link function in GLM-based control charts to improve monitoring of two-stage processes with Poisson response, Article International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology ; Vol. 72, issue. 9-12 , 2014 , p. 1243-1256 ; Amiri, A ; Niaki, S. T. A ; Sharif University of Technology
In this paper, a new procedure is developed to monitor a two-stage process with a second stage Poisson quality characteristic. In the proposed method, log and square root link functions are first combined to introduce a new link function that establishes a relationship between the Poisson variable of the second stage and the quality characteristic of the first stage. Then, the standardized residual statistic, which is independent of the quality characteristic in the previous stage and follows approximately standardized normal distribution, is computed based on the proposed link function. Then, Shewhart and exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) cause-selecting charts are utilized to...

We have developed an enhanced technique for characterizing quantum optical processes based on probing unknown quantum processes only with coherent states. Our method substantially improves the original proposal (Lobino et al 2008 Science 322 563), which uses a filtered Glauber-Sudarshan decomposition to determine the effect of the process on an arbitrary state. We introduce a new relation between the action of a general quantum process on coherent state inputs and its action on an arbitrary quantum state. This relation eliminates the need to invoke the Glauber-Sudarshan representation for states; hence, it dramatically simplifies the task of process identification and removes a potential...

Orbit determination (OD) problem utilizing onboard sensors is a key requirement for many current and future space missions. Though there exists ample research and work on this subject, a novel algorithm is presented in this paper for the nonlinear problem of OD. In this regard, initially a new cubature-quadrature particle filter (CQPF) that uses the square-root cubature-quadrature Kalman filter (SR-CQKF) to generate the importance proposal distribution is developed. The developed CQPF scheme avoids the limitation of the standard particle filter (PF) concerning new measurements. Subsequently, CQPF is enhanced to take advantage of the relative entropy (Kullback-Leibler Distance) criterion to...
VLSI implementation of a hardware-optimized lattice reduction algorithm for WiMAX/LTE MIMO detection, Article ISCAS 2010 - 2010 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems: Nano-Bio Circuit Fabrics and Systems, 30 May 2010 through 2 June 2010, Paris ; 2010 , Pages 3541-3544 ; 9781424453085 (ISBN) ; Shabany, M ; Gulak, P.

This paper presents the first ASIC implementation of an LR algorithm which achieves ML diversity. The VLSI implementation is based on a novel hardware-optimized LLL algorithm that has 70% lower complexity than the traditional complex LLL algorithm. This reduction is achieved by replacing all the computationally intensive CLLL operations (multiplication, division and square root) with low-complexity additions and comparisons. The VLSI implementation uses a pipelined architecture that produces an LR-reduced matrix every 40 cycles, which is a 60% reduction compared to current implementations. The proposed design was synthesized in both 130μm and 65nm CMOS resulting in clock speeds of 332MHz and...

In composites, the stress intensity factors (SIFs) of a lamellar inhomogeneity near a multiphase reinforcement are of interest. Based on extension of Eshelby's equivalent inclusion method, a unified approach is presented to study the effect of a multiphase inhomogeneity on the SIF at the tip points of two- and threedimensional lamellar inhomogeneities under nonuniform far-field loadings. Alteration of the SIF due to the presence of a coating layer around the inhomogeneity is addressed. Furthermore, the effect of geometry and stiffness of each phase of a multiphase reinforcement on the mixed mode SIFs of a lamellar inhomogeneity is investigated. In contrast to cracks whose SIFs are the same...

In a production process, when the quality of a product depends on more than one characteristic, multivariate quality control techniques are used. Although multivariate statistical process control is receiving increased attention in the literature, little work has been done to deal with multi-attribute processes. In this paper, a new methodology has been developed to monitor multi-attribute processes, in which the defect counts are important and different types of defect are dependent random variables. In order to do this, based on the symmetric square root transformation concept, first, multi-attribute data is transformed, such that the correlation between variables either vanishes or...

To achieve an exact three-dimensional command to line of sight (CLOS) guidance law, a novel control scheme comprising feed-forward terms (to exactly compensate known kinematics) accompanied by an adaptive nested saturated feedback strategy is presented. A square-root cubature Kalman filter is designed as the CLOS non-linear guidance filter. Performance of the proposed guidance law is compared with the augmented proportional navigation (APN), at the absence and presence of target maneuvers, autopilot dynamics and non-ideal tracking filter. Simulation results demonstrate the satisfactory performance of proposed strategy. © 2018 Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC

Nickel and nickel-manganese alloy modified graphite electrodes (G/Ni and G/NiMn) prepared by galvanostatic deposition were examined for their redox process and electrocatalytic activities towards the oxidation of methanol in alkaline solutions. The methods of cyclic voltammetery (CV), chronoamperometry (CA) and impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were employed. In CV studies, in the presence of methanol NiMn alloy modified electrode shows a significantly higher response for methanol oxidation. The peak current of the oxidation of nickel hydroxide increase is followed by a decrease in the corresponding cathodic current in presence of methanol. The anodic peak currents show linear dependency upon the...
