  • Stochastic approximation methods have found extensive and diversified applications. Recent emergence of networked systems and cyber-physical systems has generated renewed interest in advancing stochastic approximation into a general framework to support algorithm development for information processing and decisions in such systems. This paper presents a survey on some recent developments in stochastic approximation methods and their applications. Using connected vehicles in platoon formation and coordination as a platform, we highlight some traditional and new methodologies of stochastic approximation algorithms and explain how they can be used to capture essential features in networked systems. Distinct features of networked systems with randomlymore » switching topologies, dynamically evolving parameters, and unknown delays are presented, and control strategies are provided.« less
  • A challenge facing industrial control network administrators is protecting the typically large number of connected assets for which they are responsible. These cyber devices may be tightly coupled with the physical processes they control and human induced failures risk dire real-world consequences. Dynamic virtual honeypots are effective tools for observing and attracting network intruder activity. This paper presents a design and implementation for self-configuring honeypots that passively examine control system network traffic and actively adapt to the observed environment. In contrast to prior work in the field, six tools were analyzed for suitability of network entity information gathering. Ettercap, anmore » established network security tool not commonly used in this capacity, outperformed the other tools and was chosen for implementation. Utilizing Ettercap XML output, a novel four-step algorithm was developed for autonomous creation and update of a Honeyd configuration. This algorithm was tested on an existing small campus grid and sensor network by execution of a collaborative usage scenario. Automatically created virtual hosts were deployed in concert with an anomaly behavior (AB) system in an attack scenario. Virtual hosts were automatically configured with unique emulated network stack behaviors for 92% of the targeted devices. The AB system alerted on 100% of the monitored emulated devices.« less
  • Background and Purpose: A tumor subvolume-based, risk-adaptive optimization strategy is presented. Methods and Materials: Risk-adaptive optimization employs a biologic objective function instead of an objective function based on physical dose constraints. Using this biologic objective function, tumor control probability (TCP) is maximized for different tumor risk regions while at the same time minimizing normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) for organs at risk. The feasibility of risk-adaptive optimization was investigated for a variety of tumor subvolume geometries, risk-levels, and slopes of the TCP curve. Furthermore, the impact of a correlation parameter, {delta}, between TCP and NTCP on risk-adaptive optimization was investigated.more » Results: Employing risk-adaptive optimization, it is possible in a prostate cancer model to increase the equivalent uniform dose (EUD) by up to 35.4 Gy in tumor subvolumes having the highest risk classification without increasing predicted normal tissue complications in organs at risk. For all tumor subvolume geometries investigated, we found that the EUD to high-risk tumor subvolumes could be increased significantly without increasing normal tissue complications above those expected from a treatment plan aiming for uniform dose coverage of the planning target volume. We furthermore found that the tumor subvolume with the highest risk classification had the largest influence on the design of the risk-adaptive dose distribution. The parameter {delta} had little effect on risk-adaptive optimization. However, the clinical parameters D{sub 5} and {gamma}{sub 5} that represent the risk classification of tumor subvolumes had the largest impact on risk-adaptive optimization. Conclusions: On the whole, risk-adaptive optimization yields heterogeneous dose distributions that match the risk level distribution of different subvolumes within the tumor volume.« less
  • An adaptive control scheme of simulated annealing (SA) parameters derived from the polynomial-time cooling schedule is presented in terms of the efficiency enhancement of the SA algorithm. The parallel computing adaptive SA optimization scheme, which incorporates the optimization-layer-by-layer (OLL) neutronics evaluation model is then applied to determining the optimum fuel assembly (FA) loading pattern (LP) in the Korea Nuclear Unit 2 pressurized water reactor (PWR) using seven Pentium personal computers (three 266-MHz Pentium II and four 200-MHz Pentium Pro computers). It is shown that the parallel scheme enhances the efficiency of the SA optimization computation significantly but that it canmore » get trapped in local optimum LPs more frequently than the single-processor SA scheme unless one takes preventive steps. As a way to prevent trapping of the parallel scheme in local optima, using multiple seed LPs is proposed instead of a single LP with which the individual processors start each stage, and how to determine the multiple seed LPs is discussed. Because of the high efficiency of the parallel scheme, the acceptability of a hybrid neutronics evaluation model, which is slower but more accurate than the OLL model, in the parallel optimization calculation is examined from the standpoint of computing time. By demonstrating that the FA LP optimization calculation for the equilibrium cycle core of the KNU-2 PWR can be completed in <1 h on seven Pentiums, we justify the routine utilization of the hybrid model in the parallel SA optimization scheme.« less
