A modified generalised minimum-variance stochastic self-tuning controller with pole-zero placement (2001)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Zayed, A., Hussain, A., & Smith, L. (2001, December). A modified generalised minimum-variance stochastic self-tuning controller with pole-zero placement. Presented at IEEE International Multi Topic Conference, 2001, Lahore, Pakistan

The paper proposes a modified robust self-tuning controller, which minimises a cost function, incorporating system input, system output and set-point. It provides an adaptive mechanism which ensures that both the closed-loop poles and zeros are place...

An agent based Bayesian forecasting model for enhanced network security. (2001)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Pikoulas, J., Buchanan, W. J., Mannion, M., & Triantafyllopoulos, K. (2001, April). An agent based Bayesian forecasting model for enhanced network security. Presented at ECBS 2001

Security has become a major issue in many organisations, but most systems still rely on operating systems, and a user ID and password system to provide user authentication and validation. They also tend to be centralized in their approach which makes... Read More about An agent based Bayesian forecasting model for enhanced network security..

Social exchange for knowledge exchange (2001)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Hall, H. (2001). Social exchange for knowledge exchange. In Managing knowledge: conversations and critiques, University of Leicester Management Centre, 10-11 April 2001 (1-23)

The factors that motivate people to codify and share knowledge for the benefit of others have been identified as a priority area for individual companies (Smith & Farquhar, 2000, p. 27). They represent the most commonly discussed topic amongst prac... Read More about Social exchange for knowledge exchange.
