Abstract: **
This presentation focusses a selection of nanotechnological
topics in photonics on the field of research and application. In nanotechnology
geometric variations of surface or interface structures enables to modify the
physical material properties considerably and to tailor new “artificial”
properties. First, these basic principles will be highlighted in photonics on (i)
metallic nano-clusters of different size and on (ii) quantum structures for
advanced laser devices. The presentation of these basic principles will be
continued by photonic crystals of different dimensionality (1D, 2D, 3D), which
often play a major role in this context. This is highlighted in the presentation
including also examples from biology or nature. This leads to the interesting
field of bionics, relating biology and technical areas. Bionics transfers the
principles of success of nature into natural science, engineering disciplines
and applications. Often generation and detection of different spectral colors
play key roles in communication in both, nature and technology. The latter one
refers e.g. to dense wavelength division multiplex optical communication
systems. This paper shows interesting parallels in tunable spectral light
filtering by butterfly wings and by tunable optical filters used in optical
communication systems. In both cases light interferes constructively and
destructively with nano- and microstructures of appropriate shape, dimensions
and materials. In this paper methodology is strongly emphasized. Another very
important topic of this talk will be tailored scaling, which tries answer the
question of optimum size of systems. We demonstrate that tailored scaling allows
the effectiveness of physical effects to be enhanced in nature and technology.
Finally the potential of tailored scaling in micromachining to improve the
photonic device properties, to enhance stability and yield is presented. As an
example for the transfer of the principles of success of nature into
technological applications we will look more detailed into micromachined
spectrally tunable optical filters and lasers for information technology,
sensorics and analytics are presented. These structures show amazing parallels
to nature. Finally high reflective Bragg-Mirrors are fabricated for extreme
ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) are presented. These structures are very
important for the next generation integrated circuit chip production.

**
Abstract:**
Given the values of function f on a
uniform grid of a step size h on the real line, we construct the spline
interpolant of order m, defect 1 using the B-spline basis obtained by
wavelet-type dilation and shifts from the father B-spline (which can be treated
as a scaling function for a special nonorthogonal wavelet system). We establish
an unimprovable error estimate of the interpolants for the class of functions
with bounded mth derivative. We show that in the sense of worst case, all other
approximations to f using the same information about f are more coarse than the
spline interpolant. Some further error estimates are established, in particular,
error estimates for a quasi-interpolant to a function given on a bounded
interval.

**
Abstract:**
Brain is the same complex, puzzle and
attractive object in the universe. It generates goals, does not need in the
external programming and has many unique properties. Elemental learning, memory
and goal-directed behavior are not an emergent property arising from a whole
brain, but are the attribute of a neural cell, as a unit. In special
circumstances, a single neuron may play a key role in the behavior of an entire
animal. After learning, a neuron evaluates the significance of the signal,
transiently changes their own excitability and only later compares the magnitude
of this signal and threshold. The primary feature of the brain is capability to
perceive and to produce an agency. We suggest that excitation and inhibition are
perceived by a neuron as negative and positive states. Intentional actions may
be a consequence of the endogenous compensation of a drop in excitability after
damage induced by a motivational excitation. Homeostasis regulates the number of
physiological parameters, but it can support any factor at the value that
differs on the predetermined standard due to the compensatory changes of other
parameters. So, we believe that fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic approach is
sufficient not only for adequate description of a neuronal behavior, but for
actual mechanism of a neuron's self-controlling as well. We consider exertion in
neuronal metabolism as a driving force, which induces actions directed against
actual or anticipated damage. Resulting goal-directed behavior is rather
appropriate for description of aware decision-making and fuzzy logic.

**
Abstract:**
In this talk I will discuss the analysis of
dynamical systems arising in biomedicine that describe various treatments of
cancer. Mathematical models for cancer treatments have a long history, but with
the development of medicine new challenges in modeling and the analysis of these
models are appearing. Here cancer dynamics and treatment approaches will be
discussed in the framework of optimal control theory. A general overview with
examples of cell-cycle specific models will be given, some including multiple
drug therapies, and challenges in modeling cancer treatments will be addressed.
One of them, the important obstacle of evolving drug resistance in cancer
chemotherapy, will be covered in more detail and its effect on the modeling of
dynamics will be discussed. As an answer to this problem a new development in
cancer treatment, anti-angiogenesis, will be presented. The importance of this
novel treatment is that by targeting the cells of the vascularization of the
tumor rather then the tumor itself, these methods are “resistant to drug
resistance”. In the talk a mathematical model for cancer treatments with
angiogenic inhibitors will be analyzed and a full synthesis of optimal controls
will be constructed.

Abstract:**
The latter half of the 18th century, Galvani’s
famous experiment and Volta’s subsequent insight, marked the beginning of two
branches of science that were to change the human life radically. Later on, the
two new branches, namely electrology in physics and electrophysiology in
medicine, although started together, followed different paths. On the one hand
electrical engineering, electronics, and information technologies developed
whereas on the other hand evolved electrophysiology, electrical and electronic
diagnostics, and digital medical engineering. As a matter of fact, in the past
but also in recent years there have been remarkable advancements in
electrophysiology. The changes in the electric potential due to biological
activity are acquired outside the body and can identify any normal or abnormal
behavior of organs such as the heart (electrocardiogram), the muscles (electromiogram),
the brain (electroencephalogram), the eyes (electroretinagram). The present
trend seems to be pointing towards a sort of reunification of the two original
branches, which will probably return to walk together, as the recent
developments in bionics and in neural networks strongly suggest. Nowadays the
investigation of these fields has just started, but even so a number of
analogies have been discovered between the operation of an information
processing system and the behavior of the human nervous system. As a direct
example, in both cases the exchange of information takes place by means of a
binary code, as can be seen in the electrical behavior of a single cell.
Nevertheless, in certain cases an external electrical current passing through
the human body can deeply alter vital functions, and have devastating if not
lethal effects. The different issues are discussed through a unifying theory,
which takes together both the electrical and biological aspects, highlighting
the specularity of the two phenomena.

**
Abstract:**
Adjustable speed drives are widely used in
industrial applications as the most efficient means of achieving motion
control.Input voltage unbalance and sag conditions can have serious consiquences
on performance of induction motor drive.

One of the most harmful performance effect is torque pulsation (ripple torque) that are dominated by the second harmonic of the input line frequency (50 or 60 Hz). The paper presents the mathematical model enabling the closed-form solution of the motor currents and electromagnetic torque under this unbalance input voltage. The model is based on the mixed p-z approach. The analytical results can be used as a valuable design tool evaluating the impact of input voltage unbalance.

Wind Power
and the Impact on Power Systems**

**
Abstract:**
Wind Power is among the fastest growing energy
source in the world. In most systems, the amount of wind power integrated into
large scale electrical power systems only covers a small part of total power
systems load. With a low wind power penetration, system impacts are normally
small and wind turbines normally do not take part in voltage and frequency
control and if a disturbance occurs, the wind turbines are normally disconnected
and reconnected when normal operation has resumed. That is, frequency and
voltage are maintained by controlling the large power plants as would be the
case without wind turbines present.

In systems with a large portion of wind power the wind turbines and wind electric system may begin to influence overall power system behaviour, making it difficult to operate by only controlling large scale power plants. Therefore, when considering establishment of large wind power plants, several questions must be clarified. This includes transmission capacity, frequency and voltage stability, frequency control and reserves, and in some cases also flicker and harmonics. Detailed system and design studies must be carried out in order to find the best technical-economical solution for dealing with these issues. Large scale wind power may also bring substantial operational effects due to balance management and reserve impacts.

Therefore, grid codes are now developed that defines the dynamic and static requirements wind turbines must meet in order to be connected to the grid. These requirements may in some cases be troublesome and difficult to fulfil. Examples on such requirements are capabilities of contributing to frequency and voltage control by continuous modulation of active power and reactive power supplied to the transmission system.

The speech will discuss these issues with the main focus on system operation, control and stability and it will be related to the abovementioned issues of system integration, power system impacts and future grid code requirements. It will provide a structured presentation of the principles, status and experiences of wind power in power systems. Examples and experiences will be discussed and presented.

Abstract:**
Advancements in technology provide new tools
for educators and students to be used in the learning process. Today students
need to be skilled computer users and able to deal with different types of media
in order to study effectively. However, technical expertise alone is not enough
- one must know what to study, where to find information, what to do next etc.
Therefore special attention is needed to orientate students to use technology so
that they learn to study in a modern learning environment.

Here we argue that a meta-learning environment can help students in the learning process. A meta-learning environment is defined as a platform for studying and it should integrate technology and resources so that they empower the learning process.

Abstract:** A
divergence operator to measure the texture content in a multi-spectral image is
proposed. A multi-spectral image is modeled as an n-dimensional vector field,
“n” being the number of bands of the image. A pixel of the image is an
n-dimensional vector in this field. We demonstrate that the flux variations of
the vector field are related to changes in texture in the image. A divergence
operator measures the flux variation and hence, texture. In order to save
computer memory, speed up the divergence operator calculation, and lessen the
content of noise of the image, the principal components decomposition is applied
to the bands of the image. The best three principal components are used to span
the vector field. The partial derivatives involved in the divergence operator
are written as weighted finite differences. To estimate these derivatives, cubes
of three, five and seven voxels per side are considered. The cube is
systematically displaced to cover the entire domain of the vector field. In each
position of the cube, the divergence value is calculated using the weighted
finite difference approximation. This value is written as a pixel in an output
image file according to the cartesian coordinates defined by the location of the
cube. This image file depicts the texture variations of the multi-spectral
image. The relation: flux variation versus coarseness of texture is discussed. A
detailed example, based on Landsat TM multi-spectral image, is presented and
analyzed.
