Geometric optimal control and applications to aerospace

This article deals with applications of optimal control to aerospace problems with a focus on modern geometric optimal control tools and numerical continuation techniques. Geometric optimal control is a theory combining optimal control with various concepts of differential geometry. The ultimate objective is to derive optimal synthesis results for general classes of control ...

Battery aging-aware energy management of green small cells powered by the smart grid

Mobile operators are deploying energy-harvesting heterogeneous networks due to their foreseen advantages such as self-sustainable capability and reduced operating expenditure, which cannot be offered by conventional grid powered communications. However, the used energy storage is subject to irreversible aging mechanisms, requiring intelligent management that considers both the ...

Phylogenic analysis of human bocavirus detected in children with acute respiratory infection in Yaounde, Cameroon

Objective Human Bocavirus (HBoV) was first identified in 2005 and has been shown to be a common cause of respiratory infections and gastroenteritis in children. In a recent study, we found that 10.7% of children with acute respiratory infections (ARI) were infected by HBoV. Genetic characterization of this virus remains unknown in Central Africa, particularly in Cameroon Leeding us ...

Critical Exponents on Fortuin–Kasteleyn Weighted Planar Maps

In this paper we consider random planar maps weighted by the self-dual Fortuin–Kasteleyn model with parameter \({q \in (0,4)}\). Using a bijection due to Sheffield and a connection to planar Brownian motion in a cone we obtain rigorously the value of the annealed critical exponent associated with the length of cluster interfaces, which is shown to be $$\frac{4}{\pi} \arccos \left( ...

Modelling and implementation of virtual radio resources management for 5G Cloud RAN

The virtualisation of Radio Access Networks (RANs) is one of the goals in designing 5G mobile networks. This paper aims at presenting a proof of concept for the virtualisation of radio resources using Open Air Interface (OAI), a software-based Long-Term Evolution (LTE) eNodeB physical emulator. OAI was extended to support multi-tenancy, representing diverse Virtual mobile Network ...

Novel promoters and coding first exons in DLG2 linked to developmental disorders and intellectual disability

Background Tissue-specific integrative omics has the potential to reveal new genic elements important for developmental disorders. Methods Two pediatric patients with global developmental delay and intellectual disability phenotype underwent array-CGH genetic testing, both showing a partial deletion of the DLG2 gene. From independent human and murine omics datasets, we combined ...

Impact of viscosity modifier on asphalt properties used for bus rapid transit lane in Chengdu

In order to find the effect of different viscosity modifier dosages on asphalt binder’s performance in bus rapid transit lanes in the city of Chengdu, three different viscosity modifiers were analyzed: TAFPACK-super (TPS), high-viscosity additive (HVA) and road-science-technology (RST), and four different asphalt binders were investigated through laboratory experiments. The ...

Fostering responsible research with genome editing technologies: a European perspective

In this consensus paper resulting from a meeting that involved representatives from more than 20 European partners, we recommend the foundation of an expert group (European Steering Committee) to assess the potential benefits and draw-backs of genome editing (off-targets, mosaicisms, etc.), and to design risk matrices and scenarios for a responsible use of this promising ...

Charge transport in DNA model with vibrational and rotational coupling motions

The dynamics of the Peyrard-Bishop model for vibrational motion of DNA dynamics, which has been extended by taking into account the rotational motion for the nucleotides (Silva et al., J. Biol. Phys. 34, 511–519, 2018) is studied. We report on the presence of the modulational instability (MI) of a plane wave for charge migration in DNA and the generation of soliton-like excitations ...

An extensible framework for multicore response time analysis

In this paper, we introduce a multicore response time analysis (MRTA) framework, which decouples response time analysis from a reliance on context-independent WCET values. Instead, the analysis formulates response times directly from the demands placed on different hardware resources. The MRTA framework is extensible to different multicore architectures, with a variety of ...
