Abstract:

The purpose of the contract was to support research in modern electronics in Northwestern Universitys Information-Processing And Control IPAC Systems Laboratory. The program of this Laboratory initially encompassed the following areas of research a Systems theory and techniques, including pulse modulation and switching, steady-state and dynamic optimization, suboptimal control, learning control, optimum nonlinear estimation and control, and computational methods for optimal control b Information-Processing and computer sciences, including pattern recognition, sequential machines and automata, signal transmission and information processing in physiological systems, threshold logic, graph theory and linear group codes, analysis and optimum design of communication networks, and organizational problems of very high speed computers c Physical electronics, which includes solid-state devices and gaseous electronics and d Electromagnetic fields, covering coherence theory and mode coupling, boundary value problems, and reflection and scattering and antenna systems.
