Abstract: A long standing goal in artificial intelligence is to make robots seamlessly interact with humans in everyday life tasks. Robot learning from humans provides a promising route to bridge this gap. In contrast to direct trajectory learning from demonstrations, many problems arise in interactive robotic applications that require higher contextual level understanding of the ...

We study an optimal dividend problem under a bankruptcy constraint. Firms face a trade-off between potential bankruptcy and extraction of profits. In contrast to previous works, general cash flow drifts, including Ornstein–Uhlenbeck and CIR processes, are considered. We provide rigorous proofs of continuity of the value function, whence dynamic programming, as well as uniqueness of ... Read more about "Optimal dividend policies with random profitability"

Mycobacterium abscessus is a rapidly growing, nontuberculous, multidrug resistant mycobacterium, which can cause severe lung infections. This mycobacterium, like other mycobacteria, has a lipid-rich hydrophobic cell wall containing unique lipids, of which glycopeptidolipids (GPL) have emerged in recent years as major immunomodulators. M. abscessus presents smooth (S) and rough (R) morphotypes and the difference is ... Read more about "Dissecting the immunopathogenesis of Mycobacterium abscessus infection in zebrafish embryos"

Our inability to predict turbulence introduces significant uncertainty in the design of many engineering applications. Many theoretical predictions and models have been developed for turbulence in the limit of infinite Reynolds numbers. However, no real-world application operates at infinite Reynolds number, and it is typically unknown how large the Reynolds number needs to be in ...

Biological physics, both experimental and theoretical, addresses systems spanning multiple length (and time and energy) scales. Each of these systems poses formidable challenges to modelling efforts, because the staggering complexity of biological systems makes it difficult identifying the relevant components and their interactions. This notwithstanding, constant advancements have been made, and, as more and more ... Read more about "Theoretical biological physics: from systems to principles"

DNA and histone modifications play central roles in the control of gene expression and errors in their regulation are associated with a multitude of diseases. These modifications form an epigenetic ‘code’ that stores information within chromatin. This information is “read” by epigenetic effector molecules that recognise DNA and histone modifications through specialised binding domains in ...
