ABSTRACT The main theme of this paper is to present robust fuzzy controllers for a class of discrete fuzzy bilinear systems. First, the parallel distributed compensation method is utilized to design a fuzzy controller, which ensures the robust asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system and guarantees an Hinfin norm-bound constraint on disturbance attenuation for all admissible uncertainties. Second, based on the Schur complement and some variable transformations, the stability conditions of the overall fuzzy control system are formulated by linear matrix inequalities. Finally, the validity and applicability of the proposed schemes are demonstrated by a numerical simulation and the Van de Vusse example.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents robust fuzzy controllers for a class of T-S time-delay discrete fuzzy bilinear systems (DFBSs) with disturbance which ensures the robust asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system and guarantees an Hinfin norm bound constraint on disturbance attenuation. Firstly, we proposed a Hinfin fuzzy controller to stabilize the T-S DFBS with disturbance. Secondly, based on the Schur complement and some variable transformation, the stability conditions of the overall fuzzy control system are formulated by linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Finally, the validity and applicability of the proposed schemes are demonstrated by simulations.

    ABSTRACT: There is a wide variation in the reported data on the concentrations of trace elements in human milk from different countries, but such data are not available for Kuwait. The objective of this study was to analyze the concentration of zinc, copper, manganese, and iron in milk and plasma of Kuwaiti and non-Kuwaiti mothers during prolonged lactation. Milk samples (from 34 donors) were collected early in the morning before feeding the infant. Trace elements were analyzed using atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Protein content and activity of superoxide dismutase were assayed spectrophotometrically. Concentration of zinc, copper, iron, and total protein and activity of superoxide dismutase in milk and of only zinc in plasma of Kuwaiti mothers were significantly higher than those of non-Kuwaitis. Concentration of zinc, copper, manganese, and total protein in milk of both groups decreased as lactation continued but that of milk iron and plasma trace elements remained unchanged. The data of Kuwaiti mothers are consistent with those of previous reports on hyperurecemia, and the prevalence of obesity was found to be higher in the Kuwaiti population than in other countries. High protein content in association with high concentration of trace elements in milk of Kuwaiti versus non-Kuwaiti mothers may indicate that protein content in milk is an important determining factor for the concentration and bioavailability of these elements.

    ABSTRACT: Palatal fistula as a complication of palatal surgery is difficult to manage due to the presence of fibrotic and scarred tissue and the absence of local virgin tissue. Recurrence rates are high. To investigate the efficacy of repairing small and medium sized palatal fistulas using the buccal fat pad (BFP), 20 patients (aged 2.5-19 years) with palatal fistula (10-20mm) underwent closure surgery using a pedicled BFP flap. The nasal layer was closed by a local mucosal flap (turn down flap) and the pedicled BFP flap was used for oral lining. Full epithelialization of the BFP layer was observed within 4 weeks in all patients. A 2mm defect in the anterior part of the previous fistula location remained in one case, which spontaneously healed after 2 months; all others closed successfully. Mild pain and cheek swelling occurred in 10 patients, which disappeared within 5 days with no surgical intervention. This study suggests the pedicled BFP flap is a simple and relatively secure method for palatal fistula management. It is recommended for fistulas less than 20mm in length located in the posterior two-thirds of the palate.
