Optimization of an Externally Mixed Biogas Plant Using a Robust CFD Method
(202004)Biogas plants have to be continuously or periodically mixed to ensure the homogenization of fermenting and fresh substrate. Externally installed mixers provide easier access than submerged mixers but concerns of ... 
Parametric Vibration Analysis of Pipes Conveying Fluid by Nonlinear Normal Modes and a Numerical Iterative Approach
(2019)Nonlinear normal modes and a numerical iterative approach are applied to study the parametric vibrations of pipes conveying pulsating fluid as an example of gyroscopic continua. The nonlinear nonautonomous governing ... 
Particle Morphology
(20131231)This chapter discusses the morphology of latex particles obtained mainly by (mini)emulsion polymerisation. It describes some applications of these particles, and discusses the factors that influence the particle morphology. ... 
Permanence and extinction for a nonautonomous SEIRS epidemic model
(20121231)In this paper, we study the longtime behavior of a nonautonomous SEIRS epidemic model. We obtain new sufficient conditions for the permanence (uniform persistence) and extinction of infectious population of the model. By ... 
Permanence and global stability of a class of discrete epidemic models
(20111231)In this paper we investigate the permanence of a system and give a sufficient condition for the endemic equilibrium to be globally asymptotically stable, which are the remaining problems in our previous paper (G. Izzo, Y. ... 
Predictive engineering and optimization of tryptophan metabolism in yeast through a combination of mechanistic and machine learning models
(2019)In combination with advanced mechanistic modeling and the generation of highquality multidimensional data sets, machine learning is becoming an integral part of understanding and engineering living systems. Here we show ... 
Probabilistic Modelling of Classical and Quantum Systems
(20180614)While probabilistic modelling has been widely used in the last decades, the quantitative prediction in stochastic modelling of real physical problems remains a great challenge and requires sophisticated mathematical models ... 
Pseudospectral methods and numerical continuation for the analysis of structured population models
(20160607)In this thesis new numerical methods are presented for the analysis of models in population dynamics. The methods approximate equilibria and bifurcations in a certain class of so called structured population models. Chapter ... 
Pseudospin lifetime in relaxedshape armchair graphene nanoribbons due to inplane phonon modes
(20160101)We study the influence of ripple waves on the band structures of strained armchair graphene nanoribbons. We argue that the Zeeman pseudospin (pspin) splitting energy induced by ripple waves might not be neglected for ... 
Quiescence: A mechanism for escaping the effects of drug on cell populations
(20111231)We point out that a simple and generic strategy in order to lower the risk for extinction consists in developing a dormant stage in which the organism is unable to multiply but may die. The dormant organism is protected ... 
Radiation of water waves by a submerged nearly circular plate
(20160101)A thin nearly circular plate is submerged below the free surface of deep water. The problem is reduced to a hypersingular integral equation over the surface of the plate which is conformally mapped onto the unit disc. The ... 
Radiofrequency Ablation for Treating Chronic Pain of Bones: Effects of Nerve Locations
(201905)The present study aims at evaluating the effects of target nerve location from the bone tissue during continuous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for chronic pain relief. A generalized threedimensional heterogeneous computational ... 
Reexamination of continuous fuzzy measurement on twolevel systems
(20170410)Imposing restrictions on the Feynman paths of the monitored system has in the past been proposed as a universal modelfree approach to continuous quantum measurements. Here we revisit this proposition and demonstrate that ... 
Relative frequencies of constrained events in stochastic processes: An analytical approach
(20151231)The stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA) and the corresponding Monte Carlo (MC) method are among the most common approaches for studying stochastic processes. They relies on knowledge of interevent probability density ... 
Revealing the Mechanism of Sodium Diffusion in NaxFePO4 Using an Improved Force Field
(20180402)Olivine NaFePO4 is a promising cathode material for Naion batteries. Intermediate phases such as Na0.66FePO4 govern phase stability during intercalationdeintercalation processes, yet little is known about Na+ diffusion ... 
Runaway electrification of friable selfreplicating granular matter
(20131231)We establish that the nonlinear dynamics of collisions between particles favors the charging of an insulating, friable, selfreplicating granular material that undergoes nucleation, growth, and fission processes; we ... 
Shoaling of nonlinear steady waves: maximum height and angle of breaking
(20151231)A Fourier approximation method is used for modeling and simu lation of fully nonlinear steady waves. The set of resulting nonlinear equations are solved by Newton’s method. The shoaling of waves is simulated based on ... 
Spectral properties of hyperbolic nanonetworks with tunable aggregation of simplexes
(2019)Cooperative selfassembly is a ubiquitous phenomenon found in natural systems which is used for designing nanostructured materials with new functional features. Its origin and mechanisms, leading to improved functionality ... 
Spinorbit interaction in threedimensionally bounded semiconductor nanostructures
(20101231)The structural inversion asymmetryinduced spinorbit interaction of conduction band electrons in zincblende and wurtzite semiconductor structures is analysed allowing for a threedimensional (3D) character of the external ... 
Stability analysis of a renewal equation for cell population dynamics with quiescence
(20141231)We propose a model to analyze the dynamics of interacting proliferating and quiescent cell populations. The model includes age dependence of cell division, transitions between the two subpopulations, and regulation of the ...
