Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

An improved modelling technique has been developed for the B-spline approximation of the output probability density functions (PDFs). By reformulating the B-spline links between the weights vector and the output PDFs, the new algorithm decomposes the previous scanning identification into two separate operations, therefore reduces the dimension of the least square calculation and improves its efficiency. A PDF control strategy is then adopted to ensure that the output PDF will follow a desired PDF. Simulation studies have been performed for the molecular weight distribution (MWD) control of a styrene polymerization process.
