(2021-10)
Face recognition is one of the most ubiquitous examples of pattern recognition in machine learning, with numerous applications in security, access control, and law enforcement, among many others. Pattern recognition with ...
• #### Application of Quantum Natural Language Processing for Language Translation ﻿

(2021-01-01)
In this paper, we develop compositional vector-based semantics of positive transitive sentences using quantum natural language processing (Q-NLP) to compare the parametrized quantum circuits of two synonymous simple sentences ...
• #### Tunnelling times, Larmor clock, and the elephant in the room ﻿

(2021-05-11)
A controversy surrounding the “tunnelling time problem” stems from the seeming inability of quantum mechanics to provide, in the usual way, a definition of the duration a particle is supposed to spend in a given region of ...
• #### Multiscale Modelling and Simulation of Advanced Battery Materials ﻿

(2021)
Development of efficient strategies for the rational design of materials involved in the production and storage of renewable energy is essential for accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy. To contribute to ...
• #### Using discrete Ricci curvatures to infer COVID-19 epidemic network fragility and systemic risk ﻿

(2021)
The damage of the novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is reaching unprecedented scales. There are numerous classical epidemiology models trying to quantify epidemiology metrics. Usually, to forecast epidemics, classical ...
• #### Modeling dengue immune responses mediated by antibodies: A qualitative study ﻿

(2021-09-01)
Dengue fever is a viral mosquito-borne infection and a major international public health concern. With 2.5 billion people at risk of acquiring the infection around the world, disease severity is influenced by the immunological ...
• #### Unveiling Interfacial Li-Ion Dynamics in Li7La3Zr2O12/PEO(LiTFSI) Composite Polymer-Ceramic Solid Electrolytes for All-Solid-State Lithium Batteries ﻿

(2021-06-23)
Unlocking the full potential of solid-state electrolytes (SSEs) is key to enabling safer and more-energy dense technologies than today’s Li-ion batteries. In particular, composite materials comprising a conductive, flexible ...
• #### A Tool for Custom Construction of QMC and RQMC Point Sets ﻿

(2021)
We present LatNet Builder, a software tool to find good parameters for lattice rules, polynomial lattice rules, and digital nets in base 2, for quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) and randomized quasi-Monte Carlo (RQMC) sampling over ...
• #### Density Estimation by Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo ﻿

(2021)
Estimating the density of a continuous random variable $X$ has been studied extensively in statistics, in the setting where $n$ independent observations of $X$ are given a priori and one wishes to estimate the density from ...
• #### Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo Density Estimation via Conditioning ﻿

(2021)
Estimating the unknown density from which a given independent sample originates is more difficult than estimating the mean, in the sense that for the best popular non-parametric density estimators, the mean integrated ...
• #### A multiscale network-based model of contagion dynamics: heterogeneity, spatial distancing and vaccination ﻿

(2021)
Lockdown and vaccination policies have been the major concern in the last year in order to contain the SARS-CoV-2 infection during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this paper we present a model able to evaluate alternative lockdown ...
• #### What is life? A perspective of the mathematical kinetic theory of active particles ﻿
