Optimal control of infinite dimensional bilinear systems: application to the heat and wave equations
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
In this paper we consider second order optimality conditions for a bilinear optimal control problem governed by a strongly continuous semigroup operator, the control entering linearly in the cost function. We derive first ...
Thermoeconomic analysis method for optimization of combined heat and power systems. Part I
(Elsevier B.V., 2003-01-01)
This article presents a thermoeconomic analysis of cogeneration plants, applied as a rational technique to produce electric power and saturated steam. The aim of this new methodology is the minimum Exergetic Production ...
AVERAGE CONTINUOUS CONTROL OF PIECEWISE DETERMINISTIC MARKOV PROCESSES
(SIAM PUBLICATIONS, 2010)
This paper deals with the long run average continuous control problem of piecewise deterministic Markov processes (PDMPs) taking values in a general Borel space and with compact action space depending on the state variable. ...
Thermoeconomic analysis method for optimization of combined heat and power systems - part II
(Elsevier B.V., 2004-01-01)
In this paper, a thermoeconomic functional analysis method based on the Second Law of Thermodynamics and applied to analyze four cogeneration systems is presented. The objective of the developed technique is to minimize ...
Estimating the gravity equation with the actual number of exporting firms
(Universidad de Chile. Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2013-06)
To estimate correctly the effect of variable trade costs on firms’ exports, the gravity equation should control for the number of firms that participate in foreign markets. Due to the absence of these data, previous ...
On the design of guaranteed cost controllers for a class of uncertain linear systems
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2002)
The different roles of switching costs on the satisfaction-loyalty relationship
(Emerald Group Publishing Ltd., 2009)
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to develop and empirically test the antecedent, mediating and moderating role of switching costs on the relationship between satisfaction and loyalty. Design/methodology/approach - ...
