Computing Energy Optimal Paths in Time-Varying Flows
Computing Energy Optimal Paths in Time-Varying Flows
Autonomous marine vehicles (AMVs) are typically deployed for long periods of time in the ocean to monitor different physical, chemical, and biological processes. Given their limited energy budgets, it makes sense to consider motion plans that leverage the dynamics of the surrounding flow field so as...
The Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub
The Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub
Increasingly, both industry and academia, in fields ranging from biology and social sciences to computing and engineering, are driven by data (Provost & Fawcett, 2013; Wixom, et al, 2014); and both commercial success and academic impact are dependent on having access to d...
Evolving Theories of Aging – a Comparison
Evolving Theories of Aging – a Comparison
Theories of aging are evolving along experimental data and conceptual frameworks. A most recent approach positions aging into the context of complex systems theory, using concepts from statistical physics and engineering such as highly optimal tolerance (HOT) and robustness. Some key aspects of mos...
Envisaging young adult librarianship from a teen-centered perspective
Envisaging young adult librarianship from a teen-centered perspective
Young adult library services were founded on the idea of meeting teens' needs and interests, yet an adult-centered perspective dominates both the research and practice in this area. This chapter presents a small-scale content analysis of recent professional literature as proof of the prevailing adul...
