(2006) Maddison, Sarah; Lommen, D; Wright, Christopher; Bourke, Tyler; Jorgensen, J; Van Dishoeck, E; Burton, Michael; Hughes, A; Wilner, DConference PaperIn order to understand planet formation, we need to probe the physical conditions of protoplanetary disks to see when and where grains begin to grow in size. Over the past four years we have been conducting a 3mm continuum survey with the Australia Telescope Compact Array of disks around young stars (both T Tauri and Herbig Ae/B stars) in southern molecular clouds to investigate the evolution of protoplanetary disks and grain growth within these disks. The goals of our project are to obtain fluxes and hence determine the millimetre spectral energy indices, which provides information about the grain size distribution. We present results from our successful 2005 millimetre season, in which we observed 15 southern T Tauri sources (10 in Chamaeleon and 5 in Lupus). The opacity indices suggest the presence of mm-sized dust aggregates and hence substantial grain growth in the majority of these disks. We also present preliminary results from our follow-up 2006 observations of three sources (HD100546, WW Cha and RU Lup) are centimetre wavelengths and discuss the possibility of detecting pebble-sized "grains" in these disks.

(2005) Eggert, PaulConference PaperSome fundamental questions about the nature of texts have been asked by members of the encoding community as they have struggled to define what it is that they are encoding. This ought not to be surprising. The act of encoding involves a blatant intervention in text-files of a kind that scholarly editors in the print domain are normally shielded from, however heroic their emendation of corrupted wording may be. They have typically treated many aspects of the physical presentation of text as irrelevant to their pursuit. However, this self-preserving instinct finds itself in a tighter corner in the electronic domain where complete specification is crucial for computer processing.
(2006) Pota, Hemanshu R.; Athanasius, Germane Xavier; Ugrinovskii, Valery; Li, LiConference PaperThis paper addresses the problem of designing a decentralized control of interconnected power systems, with OLTC and SVCs, under large changes in real and reactive loads that cause large structural changes in the system model. In addition to this, small changes in load are regulated by small disturbance controllers whose gains are adjusted for variations in power system model due to large changes in loads. The only feedback needed by subsystem controllers is the state of the subsystem itself. The design is carried out within a large-scale Markov jump parameter systems framework. In this paper, unlike other control schemes, OLTC transformers are used to damp power-angle oscillations. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the performance of the designed controller.
