ABSTRACT The solution to the problem of optimal control of piecewise affine systems with a bounded disturbance is characterised. Results that allow one to compute the value function, its domain (robustly controllable set) and the optimal control law are presented. The tools that are employed include dynamic programming, polytopic set algebra and parametric programming. When the cost is time (robust time-optimal control problem) or the stage cost is piecewise affine (robust optimal and robust receding horizon control problems), the value function and the optimal control law are both piecewise affine and each robustly controllable set is the union of a finite set of polytopes. Conditions on the cost and constraints are also proposed in order to ensure that the optimal control laws are robustly stabilising.

    ABSTRACT: A cognitive radio network is a multiuser system, in which different users compete for limited resources in an opportunistic manner, interacting with each other for access to the available resources. The fact that both users and spectrum holes (i.e., unused spectrum subbands) can come and go makes a cognitive radio network a highly dynamic and challenging wireless environment. Therefore, finding robust resource-allocation algorithms, which are capable of achieving reasonably good solutions fast enough in order to guarantee an acceptable level of performance under worst case interference conditions, is crucial in such environment. The focus of this paper is the transmit-power control in cognitive radio networks, considering a noncooperative framework. Moreover, tools from control theory are used to study both the equilibrium and transient behaviors of the network under dynamically varying conditions.

    ABSTRACT: A given explicit piecewise affine representation of an MPC feedback law is approximated by a single polynomial, computed using linear programming. This polynomial state feedback control law guarantees closed-loop stability and constraint satisfaction. The polynomial feedback can be implemented in real time even on very simple devices with severe limitations on memory storage.

The fact that both users and spectrum holes (i.e., unused spectrum subbands) can come and go makes a cognitive radio network a highly dynamic and challenging wireless environment. Therefore, finding robust resource- allocation algorithms, which are capable of achieving reason- ably good solutions fast enough in order to guarantee an acceptable level of performance under worst case interference conditions, is crucial in such environment. The focus of this paper is the transmit-power control in cognitive radio net- works, considering a noncooperative framework. Moreover, tools from control theory are used to study both the equilib- rium and transient behaviors of the network under dynamically varying conditions.
