Generativity and Interactional Effects: an Overview. (arXiv:1911.10406v1 [eess.SY])

We propose a means to relate properties of an interconnected system to its separate component systems in the presence of cascade-like phenomena. Building on a theory of interconnection reminiscent of the behavioral approach to systems theory, we introduce the notion of generativity, and its byproduct, generative effects. Cascade effects, enclosing contagion phenomena and cascading failures,…

Ground Truth Simulation for Deep Learning Classification of Mid-Resolution Venus Images Via Unmixing of High-Resolution Hyperspectral Fenix Data. (arXiv:1911.10442v1 [eess.IV])

Training a deep neural network for classification constitutes a major problem in remote sensing due to the lack of adequate field data. Acquiring high-resolution ground truth (GT) by human interpretation is both cost-ineffective and inconsistent. We propose, instead, to utilize high-resolution, hyperspectral images for solving this problem, by unmixing these images to obtain reliable GT…

Architecture Models Refinements for Software Development of Critical Real-time Embedded Systems. (arXiv:1911.10457v1 [cs.SE])

Cyber Physical Systems are systems controlled or monitored by computer-based programs, tightly integrated networks, sensors, and actuators. Software development of CPS has become so difficult that it represents most of the cost of CPS production. In addition, it is interesting to note that the integration, verification and validation of software in CPS require more efforts…

Sizing and Profitability of Energy Storage for Prosumers in Madeira, Portugal. (arXiv:1911.10458v1 [eess.SY])

This paper proposes a framework to select the best-suited battery for co-optimizing for peak demand shaving, energy arbitrage and increase self-sufficiency in the context of power network in Madeira, Portugal. Feed-in-tariff for electricity network in Madeira is zero, which implies consumers with excess production should locally consume the excess generation rather than wasting it. Further,…

Deep graph embedding for prioritizing synergistic anticancer drug combinations. (arXiv:1911.10316v1 [q-bio.MN])

Drug combinations are frequently used for the treatment of cancer patients in order to increase efficacy, decrease adverse side effects, or overcome drug resistance. Given the enormous number of drug combinations, it is cost- and time-consuming to screen all possible drug pairs experimentally. Currently, it has not been fully explored to integrate multiple networks to…

The p-Laplacian equation in a rough thin domain with terms concentrating on the boundary. (arXiv:1911.10263v1 [math.AP])

In this work we use reiterated homogenization and unfolding operator approach to study the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of the $p$-Laplacian equation with Neumann boundary conditions set in a rough thin domain with concentrated terms on the boundary. We study weak, resonant and high roughness, respectively. In the three cases, we deduce the effective…

Effect of Copper Chemical Form on The Growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolated from Burned Patients and on Its Cu Uptake. (arXiv:1911.10362v1 [q-bio.OT])

The main object of this investigation was to shed light on the information on the level of Cu uptake by Pseudomonas aeruginosa that has been previously isolated from patients using Gram-negative E. aerogenes ans a Gram-positive Bacillus thuringiensis as a control for Cu uptake measurements. Cu uptake data showed that maximum Cu uptake was obtained…

A fully-coupled computational framework for large-scale simulation of fluid-driven fracture propagation on parallel computers. (arXiv:1911.10275v1 [cs.CE])

The propagation of cracks driven by a pressurized fluid emerges in several areas of engineering, including structural, geotechnical, and petroleum engineering. We present a robust numerical framework to simulate fluid-driven fracture propagation that addresses the challenges emerging in the simulation of this complex coupled nonlinear hydro-mechanical response. We observe that the numerical difficulties stem from…
