Wildland fire propagation modelling
(MODELLING FOR ENGINEERING AND HUMAN BEHAVIOUR 2017 Extended abstract, 201712)Wildfire propagation modelling is a challenging problem due to its complex multiscale multiphysics nature. This process can be described by a reaction diffusion equation based on the energy balance principle. Alternative ... 
Hierarchical modelling of patientreported outcomes data based on the betabinomial distribution
(20171213)The betabinomial distribution does not belong to the exponential family and, hence classical regression techniques cannot be used when dealing with outcomes following the mentioned distribution. In this thesis we propose ... 
Front Curvature Evolution and Hydrodynamics Instabilities
(Proceedings/Extended Abstract Book (6 pages) of the XXXX Meeting of the Italian Section of the Combustion Institute, Rome, Italy, 20170607)It is known that hydrodynamic instabilities in turbulent premixed combustion are described by the MichelsonSivashinsky (MS) equation. A model of the flame front propagation based on the Gequation and on stochastic ... 
Improved A1 − A∞ and related estimates for commutators of rough singular integrals
(Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, 2017)An $A_1A_\infty$ estimate improving a previous result in [22] for $[b, T_\Omega]$ with $\Omega\in L^\infty(S^{n1})$ and $b\in BMO$ is obtained. Also a new result in terms of the $A_\infty$ constant and the one ... 
Topology of Spaces of Valuations and Geometry of Singularities
(Transactions of the AMS  American Mathematical Society, 20171111)Given an algebraic variety X defined over an algebraically closed field, we study the space RZ(X,x) consisting of all the valuations of the function field of X which are centered in a closed point x of X. We concentrate ... 
A system for airport weather forecasting based on circular regression trees
(Environmental Modelling & Software, 20171101)This paper describes a suite of tools and a model for improving the accuracy of airport weather forecasts produced by numerical weather prediction (NWP) products, by learning from the relationships between previously ... 
Learning to classify software defects from crowds: a novel approach
(Applied Soft Computing, 20171101)In software engineering, associating each reported defect with a cate gory allows, among many other things, for the appropriate allocation of resources. Although this classification task can be automated using stan dard ... 
A proof of the integral identity conjecture, II
(Comptes Rendus Mathematique, 20171031)In this note, using CluckersLoeser’s theory of motivic integration, we prove the integral identity conjecture with framework a localized Grothendieck ring of varieties over an arbitrary base field of characteristic zero. 
Correcting for spatial heterogeneity in plant breeding experiments with Psplines
(Spatial Statistics, 20171027)An important aim of the analysis of agricultural field experiments is to obtain good predictions for genotypic performance, by correcting for spatial effects. In practice these corrections turn out to be complicated, since ... 
On a hyperbolic system arising in liquid crystal modelling
(Journal of Hyperbolic Differential Equations, 201711)We consider a model of liquid crystals, based on a nonlinear hyperbolic system of differential equations, that represents an inviscid version of the model proposed by Qian and Sheng. A new concept of dissipative solution ... 
Spherevalued harmonic maps with surface energy and the K13 problem
(Advances in the Calculus of Variations, 201711)We consider an energy functional motivated by the celebrated K13 problem in the OseenFrank theory of nematic liquid crystals. It is defined for spherevalued functions and appears as the usual Dirichlet energy with an ... 
Global wellposedness and twistwave solutions for the inertial QianSheng model of liquid crystals
(Journal of Differential Equations, 20171002)We consider the inertial QianSheng model of liquid crystals which couples a hyperbolictype equation involving a secondorder material derivative with a forced incompressible NavierStokes system. We study the energy law ... 
Early classification of time series by simultaneously optimizing the accuracy and earliness
(IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, 201710)The problem of early classi cation of time series appears naturally in contexts where the data, of temporal nature, is collected over time, and early class predictions are interesting or even required. The objective is to ... 
Klein's Paradox and the Relativistic $\delta$shell Interaction in $\mathbb{R}^3$
(Analysis & PDE, 201711)Under certain hypothesis of smallness of the regular potential $\mathbf{V}$, we prove that the Dirac operator in $\mathbb{R}^3$ coupled with a suitable rescaling of $\mathbf{V}$, converges in the strong resolvent sense ... 
Asymptotic behaviour for fractional diffusionconvection equations
(201710)We consider a convectiondiffusion model with linear fractional diffusion in the subcritical range. We prove that the large time asymptotic behavior of the solution is given by the unique entropy solution of the convective ... 
Existence of weak solutions for a general porous medium equation with nonlocal pressure
(submitted, 201710)We study the general nonlinear diffusion equation $u_t=\nabla\cdot (u^{m1}\nabla (\Delta)^{s}u)$ that describes a flow through a porous medium which is driven by a nonlocal pressure. We consider constant parameters ... 
A spacefractional Monodomain model for cardiac electrophysiology combining anisotropy and heterogeneity on realistic geometries
(20171004)Classical models of electrophysiology do not typically account for the effects of high structural heterogeneity in the spatiotemporal description of excitation waves propagation. We consider a modification of the Monodomain ... 
Threedimensional coarsening dynamics of a conserved, nematic liquid crystalisotropic fluid mixture
(Journal of NonNewtonian Fluid Mechanics, 201709)We present a numerical investigation of the threedimensional coarsening dynamics of a nematic liquid crystalisotropic fluid mixture using a conserved phase field model. The model is a coupled system for a generalized ... 
The Experiment Data Depot: A WebBased Software Tool for Biological Experimental Data Storage, Sharing, and Visualization
(ACS Synthetic Biology, 20170930)Although recent advances in synthetic biology allow us to produce biological designs more efficiently than ever, our ability to predict the end result of these designs is still nascent. Predictive models require large ... 
GoalOriented Adaptivity using Unconventional Error Representations
(201709)In GoalOriented Adaptivity (GOA), the error in a Quantity of Interest (QoI) is represented using global error functions of the direct and adjoint problems. This error representation is subsequently bounded above by ...
