Singapore's arms sale to UK : a defence export breakthrough
Singapore's sale to the United Kingdom of military vehicles is not the way of major arms deals: sophisticated military exports should move from the big advanced nations to small states, not the other way around. Singapore's ...
Bidirectional branch and bound for controlled variable selection Part II : exact local method for self-optimizing control
The selection of controlled variables (CVs) from available measurements through enumeration of all possible alternatives is computationally forbidding for large-dimensional problems. In Part I of this work, we proposed a ...
Minimum variance benchmark for decentralized controllers
This paper deals with performance assessment of decentralized controllers using a minimum variance (MV) benchmark. The available MV benchmarks do not take the structure of the controller into account and can give ...
Indonesia's 2009 legislative election : the emerging danger of charismatic politics
Indonesia's Constitutional Court recently ruled that legislative candidates must win their parliamentary seats through a majority of votes in their electoral districts. This ruling effectively abolishes the party list ...

In defence of high seas freedoms
An article in RSIS Commentaries on the recent clashes in China's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) between Chinese patrol vessels and US ocean surveillance ships cited differing interpretations about rights and responsibilities ...
Comprehensive analysis of serpentine line design
Serpentine lines have been widely used in digital circuits to provide the required timing delays. ...
A survey of algebraic unitary codes
This survey paper gives an overview of algebraic unitary codes. It describes the coding problem involved, and present several algebraic approaches yielding interesting constructions, as well as the latest bounds.
Biocatalytic oxidation by chloroperoxidase from Caldariomyces fumago in polymersome nanoreactors
The encapsulation of chloroperoxidase from Caldariomyces fumago (CPO) in block copolymer polymersomes is reported. Fluorescence and electron microscopy show that when the encapsulating ...
A fully-integrated low power PAM/PPM multi-channel UWB transmitter
A new transmitter for ultra-wideband (UWB) impulse radio is described in this paper. The proposed architecture features the simple design, low-power operation, and enables the ...
