    Aghalaya S. Vatsala

      Aghalaya S. Vatsala is is a Full Professor with the Department of Mathematics, University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Nonlinear Caputo Impulsive Fractional Differential Equations and Generalized Monotone Method Abstract: It is known that Caputo fractional differential equations play\ an important role in modeling physical situation. The models represented by Caputo fractional differential equation in general are better and efficient models than its counterpart with integer derivative models. In this work, we consider nonlinear Caputo impulsive fractional differential equations with initial conditions. Further, the impulses occur in the nonhomogeneous term. Initially, we have computed the solution of the linear Caputo impulsive fractional differential equation explicitly using the method of mathematical induction.…

    Vladimir V. Golubev

    Vladimir V. Golubev New Results in Wake Vortex Evolution, Interaction and Control Abstract: Wake vortex safety analysis and control for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operating alongside commercial aircraft in the terminal zones are critical aspects in the integration of UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS), particularly in terminal airspace. We address an approach that integrates reduced-order models of wake generation, evolution, interaction and its control incorporating both theoretical and high-fidelity predictions. Our previous study estimated UAS responses in terms of the roll control ratios (RCR) developed by the follower aircraft depending on their position and orientation relative to the wake shed by the leader aircraft, as well as the…
