  • Efficient electrochemical model for lithium-ion cells 

    Afshar, Sepideh; Morris, Kirsten; Khajepour, Amir (2017-09-12)
    Lithium-ion batteries are used to store energy in electric vehicles. Physical models based on electro-chemistry accurately predict the cell dynamics, in particular the state of charge. However, these models are nonlinear ...
  • The correction of static and dynamic aniseikonia with spectacles and contact lenses 

    McNeill, Suzanne; Bobier, William (Wiley, 2017-02-16)
    We describe a case of where significant anisometropic astigmatism was accompanied with considerable asthenopic symptoms. Symptoms were not alleviated by the prescribing of a partial spectacle correction. Subsequent treatment ...
  • Keyframe-based monocular SLAM: design, survey, and future directions 

    Younes, Georges; Asmar, Daniel; Shammas, Elie; Zelek, John (Elsevier, 2017-12-01)
    Extensive research in the field of monocular SLAM for the past fifteen years has yielded workable systems that found their way into various applications in robotics and augmented reality. Although filter-based monocular ...
  • Phase models and clustering in networks of oscillators with delayed coupling 

    Campbell, Sue Ann; Wang, Zhen (Elsevier, 2017-09-19)
    We consider a general model for a network of oscillators with time delayed coupling where the coupling matrix is circulant. We use the theory of weakly coupled oscillators to reduce the system of delay differential equations ...
  • Optimal processing route for the utilization and conversion of municipal solid waste into energy and valuable products 

    Rizwan, Muhammad; Saif, Yousef; Almansoori, Ali; Elkamel, Ali (Elsevier, 2018-02-10)
    A systematic design of municipal solid waste (MSW) management system can lead to identify a promising and/or sustainable way of handling MSW by processing it into energy and valuable products. In this study, a systematic ...
  • Robust extraction of basis functions for simultaneous and proportional myoelectric control via sparse non-negative matrix factorization 

    Lin, Chuang; Wang, Binghui; Jiang, Ning; Farina, Dario (Institute of Physics, 2017-10-27)
    Objective. This paper proposes a novel simultaneous and proportional multiple degree of freedom (DOF) myoelectric control method for active prostheses. Approach. The approach is based on non-negative matrix factorization ...
  • Hybrid Electromagnetic Vibration Isolation Systems 

    Asadi, Ehsan (University of Waterloo, 2017-11-15)
    Traditionally, dynamic systems are equipped with passive technologies like viscous shock absorbers and rubber vibration isolators to attenuate disturbances. Passive elements are cost effective, simple to manufacture, and ...
  • Syntactic Complexities of Six Classes of Star-Free Languages 

    Brzozowski, Janusz; Li, Baiyu; Liu, David (Otto-von-Guericke-Universit¨at Magdeburg, 2012)
    The syntactic complexity of a regular language is the cardinality of its syntactic semi-group. The syntactic complexity of a subclass of regular languages is the maximal syntactic complexity of languages in that subclass, ...
  • Quotient complexity of ideal languages 

    Brzozowski, Janusz; Jirásková, Galina; Li, Baiyu (Elsevier, 2013-01-28)
    A language L over an alphabet Σ is a right (left) ideal if it satisfies L=LΣ∗ (L=Σ∗L). It is a two-sided ideal if L=Σ∗LΣ∗, and an all-sided ideal if L=Σ∗L, the shuffle of Σ∗ with L. Ideal languages are not only of interest ...
  • Syntactic complexity of prefix-, suffix-, bifix-, and factor-free regular languages 

    Brzozowski, Janusz; Li, Baiyu; Ye, Yuli (Elsevier, 2012-08-31)
