    This paper considers a singularly perturbed reaction diffusion problem. It is investigated whether adaptive approaches are successful to design robust solution procedures. A key ingredient is the a posteriori error estimator. Since robust and mathematically analysed error estimation is possible...

    We present methods to measure the RF half-wave voltage Vπ(f) using a photodetector and an RF spectrum analyzer based on (i) the nonlinear response and (ii) the two-point technique. The results obtained from these methods for an LiNbO3 Mach–Zehnder optical modulator at 6.3 GHz are...

    We extend existing theory on stability, namely how much changes in the training data influence the estimated models, and generalization performance of deterministic learning algorithms to the case of randomized algorithms.
