Byzantine-Resilient Distributed Hypothesis Testing With Time-Varying Network Topology [article]

Bo Wu, Steven Carr, Suda Bharadwaj, Zhe Xu, Ufuk Topcu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We study the problem of distributed hypothesis testing over a network of mobile agents with limited communication and sensing ranges to infer the true hypothesis collaboratively.  ...  We prove under mild assumptions that the AB for every non-compromised agent converges almost surely to the true hypothesis, without requiring connectivity in the underlying time-varying network topology  ...  This paper considers a distributed hypothesis testing problem over a network of mobile agents with a time-varying network topology.  ...

Non-Stationary Random Process for Large-Scale Failure and Recovery of Power Distribution

Yun Wei, Chuanyi Ji, Floyd Galvan, Stephen Couvillon, George Orellana, James Momoh
2016 Applied Mathematics  
Real data on large-scale failures from an operational network is used to learn time-varying model parameters and resilience metrics.  ...  This requires strengthening resilience of distribution networks that lie at the edge of the grid.  ...  The recovery-time distribution has been modeled as Weibull mixtures with time-varying parameters.  ...

Entropy and optimality in river deltas

2017 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
We thus suggest that prograding deltas attain dynamically accessible optima of flux distributions on their channel network topologies, thus effectively decoupling evolutionary time scales of geomorphology  ...  This notion resonates with previous results applied to tidal deltas showing that tidal channels self-organize to uniformly distribute the tidal prism across the delta (35).  ...  Testing this hypothesis in field deltas is challenging because avulsions occur infrequently.  ...

Effects of network resolution on topological properties of human neocortex

Rafael Romero-Garcia, Mercedes Atienza, Line H. Clemmensen, Jose L. Cantero
2012 NeuroImage  
In summary, our study confirms that topological organization of anatomical cortical networks varies with both sparsity and resolution of cortical scale, and it further provides a novel methodological framework  ...  Most of these studies were performed with different cortical scales leading to cortical networks with different levels of small-world organization.  ...  It will strongly depend on the nature of the study (exploratory versus hypothesis-driven) and on the underlying hypothesis (topological versus biological).  ...

A Multi-Objective Optimization Scheme for Resilient, Cost-Effective Planning of Microgrids

Moein Borghei, Mona Ghassemi
2020 IEEE Access  
This work aims to simultaneously maximize the resiliency of distribution networks -in terms of service to the critical loads -and minimize the dispatchable generation capacity of microgrids.  ...  Given the accuracy, computation time efficacy, and the generic formulation of the problem, the optimization scheme can be easily applied to any real network.  ...  Network reconfiguration is another tool that is integrated with microgrids to enhance the network resiliency.  ...
