Nonlinear Analysis: Hybrid Systems | Year: 2011

We study the stability analysis problem for switched linear descriptor systems. Assuming that all subsystems are stable and there is no impulse at the switching instants, we establish a new pairwise commutation condition under which the switched system is stable. We also show that when the proposed commutation condition holds, there exists a common quadratic Lyapunov function (CQLF) for the subsystems. These results are natural and significant extensions to the existing results for switched systems in the state space representation. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

Despite medical advances in technology, improved socioeconomics, and medical knowledge, an estimated 55,000 children die every year in the United States. A phenomenological study was conducted at a tertiary-quaternary children's hospital to determine the emerging patterns amidst the chaos with nurses caring for children dying unexpectedly. Implications for nursing practice include a progression of caring, a set of patterns that emerge out of the seeming chaos of a coding patient. These patterns shed light on the interactive relationships within the hospital and can foster collaboration among bedside nurses, advanced practice nurses, inter-professional team members, directors, and hospital administrators. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

Objectives. To determine the impact of Positive Prevention PLUS, a school-based adolescent pregnancy prevention program on delaying sexual intercourse, birth control use, and pregnancy. Methods. I randomly assigned a diverse sample of ninth grade students in 21 suburban public high schools in California into treatment (n = 2483) and control (n = 1784) groups that participated in a clustered randomized controlled trial. Between October 2013 and May 2014, participants completed baseline and 6-month follow-up surveys regarding sexual behavior and pregnancy. Participants in the treatment group were offered Positive Prevention PLUS, an 11-lesson adolescent pregnancy prevention program. Results. The program had statistically significant impacts on delaying sexual intercourse and increasing the use of birth control. However, I detected no program effect on pregnancy rates at 6-month follow-up. Conclusions.The Positive Prevention PLUS program demonstrated positive impacts on adolescent sexual behavior. This suggests that programs that focus on having students practice risk reduction skills may delay sexual activity and increase birth control use.

Founding of new engineering laboratories requires large funding. Small liberal arts teaching universities, usually have limited funds particularly for engineering programs. This article details how a thermal engineering faculty member founded and developed a thermal engineering laboratory, in a small liberal arts university. Over the years the faculty member used the students' laboratory fees that varied from $300 to less than $1000 a year for small projects involving undergraduate students. Also, that faculty wrote and acquired numerous micro grants for equipment, instruments, and software. These micro grants ranged from $500 to $25,000. Creative methods were used to create unique hands-on learning opportunities for undergraduate mechanical engineering students. The undergraduate senior students designed, manufactured, assembled, and built unique thermal engineering experiments, with instruction and advising from the author. These activities met numerous of ABET criteria for accrediting undergraduate engineering programs. The projects that were designed and built by the senior mechanical engineering students were used in educating the following cohorts of mechanical engineering students. Many of these thermal projects were published in refereed journals and conferences. The undergraduate students who were involved in these projects ended up being co-authors for the work they were involved with. The total number of publications involving undergraduate students so far is eight refereed articles published in refereed journals and refereed conferences. In addition undergraduate students were co-authors in a poster session. This article details the projects, and the progress of developing the laboratory over sixteen years. Also, the author discusses the environment and settings that help creative development and founding a laboratory, with limited budget, in small universities. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2016.
