Basic facts concerning extreme supermodular functions
Studený, Milan
2016 - English
Elementary facts and observations on the cone of supermodular set functions are recalled. The manuscript deals with such operations with set functions which preserve supermodularity\nand the emphasis is put on those such operations which even preserve extremality (of a supermodular function). These involve a few self-transformations of the cone of supermodular set functions. Moreover, projections to the (less-dimensional) linear space of set functions for a subset of the variable set are discussed. Finally, several extensions to the (more-dimensional) linear space of set functions for a superset of the variable set are shown to be both preserving supermodularity and extremality. Keywords: supermodular function; standardizations; extreme supermodular function Fulltext is available at external website.

Adaptive Blind Separation of Instantaneous Linear Mixtures of Independent Sources
Šembera, Ondřej; Tichavský, Petr; Koldovský, Zbyněk
2016 - English
In many applications, there is a need to blindly separate independent sources from their linear instantaneous mixtures while the mixing matrix or source properties are slowly or abruptly changing in time. The easiest way to separate the data is to consider off-line estimation of the model parameters repeatedly in time shifting window. Another popular method is the stochastic natural gradient algorithm, which relies on non-Gaussianity of the separated signals and is adaptive by its nature. In this paper, we propose an adaptive version of two blind source separation algorithms which exploit non-stationarity of the original signals. The results indicate that the proposed algorithms slightly outperform the natural gradient in the trade-off between the algorithm’s ability to quickly adapt to changes in the mixing matrix and the variance of the estimate when the mixing is stationary. Keywords: blind separation; algorithms; block gaussian separation Fulltext is available at external website.

Robot Control in Terms of Hamiltonian Mechanics
Záda, V.; Belda, Květoslav
2016 - English
The paper deals with a mathematical modeling of robot motion and control. Instead of frequently used Lagrangian formulation of robot dynamics, this paper presents robot dynamics by Hamiltonian formulation. This formulation leads to different physical descriptive quantities considered for control design. In the paper, as a comparative control approach, PD control with gravity compensation is considered. The control approach considering Hamiltonian formulation is demonstrated for simplicity on two-mass robot-arm system. However, the explained modeling approach is general and it can be applied, e.g., to usual industrial articulated robots-manipulators with multiple degrees of freedom. Keywords: Robot-manipulator; Hamiltonian formalism; Modeling; Robot control; PD control Fulltext is available at external website.

Transient and Average Markov Reward Chains with Applications to Finance
Sladký, Karel
2016 - English
The article is devoted to Markov reward chains, in particular, attention is primarily focused on the reward variance arising by summation of generated rewards. Explicit formulae for calculating the variances for transient and average models are reported along with sketches of algorithmic procedures for finding policies guaranteeing minimal variance in the class of policies with a given transient or average reward. Application of the obtained results to financial models is indicated. Keywords: dynamic programming; transient and average Markov reward chains; reward-variance optimality; optimality in financial models Fulltext is available at external website.

Metodika určování vodorovných pohybů výškových objektů pomocí technologie radarové interferometrie
Antoš, Filip; Talich, Milan; Glöckner, M.; Böhm, O.; Soukup, Lubomír; Havrlant, Jan; Závrská, M.; Šolc, Jakub
2016 - Czech
Tato metodika poskytuje návod pro určování vodorovných pohybů výškových objektů pomocí technologie radarové interferometrie. Vodorovné pohyby výškových objektů jsou vyvolány buď vlivem povětrnostních podmínek, nestabilitou základů objektu nebo působením vlastních sil, vyvolaných mechanickým zařízením na objektu. Pohyby výškových objektů jsou pozemním radarem měřeny v celé délce sledovaného objektu současně. Měření je kontinuální s vysokou vzorkovací frekvencí (až 200 Hz) a zároveň i s vysokou přesností (až 0,01 mm). S využitím přirozených odražečů radarového signálu na povrchu objektu je možno pohyby měřit na dálku bez nutnosti přístupu k objektu. Pokud těleso objektu, případně kovové části na něm upevněné, neposkytuje dostatečně kvalitní odraz, je nutné na vhodná místa upevnit kovové koutové odražeče. Předpokládá se použití interferometrického radaru IBIS-S italského výrobce IDS. Obecná doporučení a závěry jsou však platná pro každý radar tohoto druhu. The Methodics provides a user with an instruction for horizontal movements determination of height objetcs by the radar interferometric technology. The horizontal movements of height objetcs are roused by the weather conditions or by the object fundament instability or by influence of intrinsic forces caused by a mechanic component attached to the object. The movements of the height objetcs are measured simultaneously in the whole length of the monitored object. The measurement is continuous with high frequency (up to 200 Hz) and very precise (up to 0,01 mm). It is possible to measure remotely, without need of accesss to the object, when natural reflectors of radar signal are parts of the object's surface. If the body of the object, resp. attached metal parts have poor reflection, metal corner reflectors have to be attached to suitable places on the object. Interferometric radar IBIS-S of Italian production is supposed to be used. Nevertheless, the general recomendations and conclusions are valid for any other radar device of this kind.

DCTOOL-A3
Bakule, Lubomír; Papík, Martin; Rehák, Branislav
2016 - English
DCTOOL-A3 is a documentation of Matlab routines developed for the design of decentralized control of large scale complex systems. The current beta version covers three areas as follows:\nReport 4.1 deals with the event-triggered control design for unstructured uncertain systems. Both non-quantized and quantized feedback is analyzed. The results are given in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Logarithmic quantizer is used. Numerical example illustrates the effectiveness of the presented results.\nReport 4.2 presents a new decentralized overlapping wireless control design with a switched communication protocol. The method is applied by simulations on the 20-story building structure including the test of robustness of the methods against sensor failures and network node dropouts of a digital network.\nReport 4.3 presents the construction of a new decentralized wireless controller and a set of heuristic algorithms for evaluation of packet dropouts, sensor faults and actuator faults. The digital network operates at the standard frequency used in well-known widely-used industrial protocols. The results are tested at the Benchmark model decomposed into two disjoint substructures. The results are published. Thus, the details are omitted here. Keywords: event-triggered control; networked control systems; large scale complex systems Available at various institutes of the ASCR
