  1. A significant amount of research has been performed on network accessibility evaluation, but studies on incorporating accessibility maximization into network design problems have been relatively scarce. This study aimed to bridge the gap by proposing an integer programming model that explicitly maximizes the number of accessible opportunities within a given travel time budget. We adopted the Lagrangian relaxation method for decomposing the main problem into three subproblems that can be solved more efficiently using dynamic programming. The proposed method was applied to several case studies, which identified critical links for maximizing network accessibility with limited construction budget, and also illustrated the accuracy and efficiency of the algorithm. This method is promisingly scalable as a solution algorithm for large-scale accessibility-oriented network design problems.

  2. This paper aims to enhance the computational efficiency of safety verification of neural network control systems by developing a guaranteed neural network model reduction method. First, a concept of model reduction precision is proposed to describe the guaranteed distance between the outputs of a neural network and its reduced-size version. A reachability-based algorithm is proposed to accurately compute the model reduction precision. Then, by substituting a reduced-size neural network controller into the closed-loop system, an algorithm to compute the reachable set of the original system is developed, which is able to support much more computationally efficient safety verification processes. Finally, the developed methods are applied to a case study of the Adaptive Cruise Control system with a neural network controller, which is shown to significantly reduce the computational time of safety verification and thus validate the effectiveness of the method.

    We demonstrate digital predistortion (DPD) using a novel, neural-network (NN) method to combat the nonlinearities in power amplifiers (PAs), which limit the power efficiency of mobile devices, increase the error vector magnitude, and cause inadequate spectral containment. DPD is commonly done with polynomial-based methods that use an indirect-learning architecture (ILA) which can be computationally intensive, especially for mobile devices, and overly sensitive to noise. Our approach using NNs avoids the problems associated with ILAs by first training a NN to model the PA then training a predistorter by backpropagating through the PA NN model. The NN DPD effectively learns the unique PA distortions, which may not easily fit a polynomial-based model, and hence may offer a favorable tradeoff between computation overhead and DPD performance. We demonstrate the performance of our NN method using two different power amplifier systems and investigate the complexity tradeoffs.
