IGM Colloquium: Considering mean and turbulence kinetic energy transport on stratified wind plant boundary layers
Abstract: Experiments and numerical studies have demonstrated that the power extracted by the wind plant is directly and proportionately related to the transport of mean kinetic energy - here the parting point. This is intimately tied with the balance of turbulence kinetic energy. These relations are shown through wind tunnel experiments and large eddy simulations ...

Abstract: During our daily life, we depend on memories of past experiences to plan future behaviour. These memories are represented by the activity of specific neuronal groups or ‘engrams’. Neuronal engrams are assembled during learning by synaptic modification, and engram reactivation represents the memorized experience. Engrams of conscious memories are initially stored in the hippocampus ... Read more about "BMI SEMINAR // Marlene Bartos - Emergence of stable and dynamic memory engrams in the hippocampus"

Abstract: In recent years, there has been significant interest in the applications of printed electronics in the realization of a range of low-cost, large area, flexible electronic systems such as displays, distributed sensors, and low-cost disposable tags. To make printed electronics a viable technology, however, there is a need for significant innovations across all aspects ...

We address the optimization of a computer model, where each simulation either fails or returns a valid output performance. We suggest a joint Gaussian process model for classification of the inputs (computation failure or success) and for regression of the performance function. We discuss the maximum likelihood estimation of the covariance parameters, with a stochastic ... Read more about "Gaussian process optimization with simulation failures"

Mars’ ice caps hold the secret to the planet's climate, hydrological processes and is a likely place to contain traces of life, should they exist. A crewed mission to the surface of Mars, with the objective of drilling into the Northern ice cap and analysing the samples in-situ would therefore advance our knowledge of the ...
