Optimal Actuator Location for Semi-Linear Systems
Actuator location and design are important choices in controller design for distributed parameter systems. Semi-linear partial differential equations model a wide spectrum of physical systems with distributed parameters. ...
Parameterizing a dynamic inﬂuenza model using longitudinal versus age-stratiﬁed case notiﬁcations yields diﬀerent predictions of vaccine impacts
Dynamic transmission models of inﬂuenza are often used in decision-making to identify which vaccination strategies might best reduce inﬂuenza-associated health and economic burdens. Our goal was to use laboratory conﬁrmed ...
Smooth centre manifolds for impulsive delay differential equations
The existence and smoothness of centre manifolds and a reduction principle are proven for impulsive delay differential equations. Several intermediate results of theoretical interest are developed, including a variation ...
An integrated personnel allocation and machine scheduling problem for industrial size multipurpose plants
This paper describes the development and implementation of an optimization model to solve the integrated problem of personnel allocation and machine scheduling for industrial size multipurpose plants. Although each of these ...
Convergence of socio-ecological dynamics in disparate ecological systems under strong coupling to human social systems
It is widely recognized that coupled socio-ecological dynamics can be qualitatively different from the dynamics of social or ecological systems in isolation from one another. The influence of the type of ecological dynamics ...
