This PhD thesis considers the development of optimization and model-based control techniques for max-plus linear (MPL) and continuous piecewise affine (PWA) systems. The three main topics investigated in this thesis are as follows: 1. Optimistic optimization and planning for model-based control of MPL systems; 2. Optimistic optimization for MPC...

Quantum computers can solve some problems exponentially faster than classical computers. Unfortunately, the computational power of quantum computers is currently limited by the number of working qubits. It is difficult to scale up these systems, because qubits are easily affected by noise in their environment. This noise leads to decoherence:...

Quantum computers promise to be a revolutionary new technology. However, in order to realise this promise many hurdles must first be overcome. In this thesis we investigate two such hurdles: the presence of noise in quantum computers and limitations on the connectivity and control in large scale quantum computing architectures.In order to combat...

The rapid urban growth of Brazilian cities in the second half of the twentieth century produced an extremely unequal urban fabric with spatial discontinuities and left-over spaces. Spatial fragmentation in Brazilian metropolises is not only related to spatial discontinuities, but also to socioeconomic inequalities. Walls in Brazil are physical...

Quantum error correction (QEC) is key to have reliable quantum computation and storage, due to the fragility of qubits in current quantum technology and the imperfect application of quantum operations. In order to have efficient quantum computation and storage, active QEC is required. QEC consists of an encoding and a decoding process. The way...

GAMING simulations (games) have been closely relatedwith systems, and particularly with systems characterised as being complex. There is a long history on the evolution of systems from simply technical and social, to socio-technical (STS) and all the way to complex (adaptive) systems (CAS). Within this ever-increasing complexity, an important...

Following their conception in the mid twentieth century, the world of computers has evolved from a landscape of isolated entities into a sprawling web of interconnected machines. Yet, given this evolution, many of the methods we use for allowing computers to work together still reflect their inherently isolated origins with the aggregation of...

In 2012 we presented the first systematic study of the costs of cybercrime. In this paper, we report what has changed in the seven years since. The period has seen major platform evolution, with the mobile phone replacing the PC and laptop as the consumer terminal of choice, with Android replacing Windows, and with many services moving to the...

Precise absolute and relative orbit determination, referred to as Precise Orbit Determination (POD) and Precise Baseline Determination (PBD), are a prerequisite for the success of many Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite missions. With the spaceborne, high-quality, multi-channel, dual-frequency Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers, typically a...

At the time of creating an experimental design for a stated choice experiment, the analyst often does not precisely know which model, or decision rule, he or she will estimate once the data are collected. This paper presents two new software tools for creating stated choice experimental designs that are simultaneously efficient for regret...

The behaviour of square steel tube confined reinforced concrete columns after fire exposure was studied experimentally and numerically in this paper. Eighteen stub columns were first heated following the ISO 834 standard fire including both heating and cooling phases, and were subsequently loaded to failure after cooling to ambient temperature....

Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment ...

The current work explores the participation divide that is oftentimes at play within local citizen communities. The studied case illustrates a common situation where the majority of local citizens does not participate in public space improvement and maintenance activities organised by local community activists. The presented research involved...

Abstract: The Ring of Fire (RoF) measurement concept, introduced by Terra et al. (Exp Fluids 58:83. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00348-017-2331-0, 2017; Experiments in Fluids 59:120, 2018), is applied to real cyclists to enable the aerodynamic drag determination during sport action. This principle is based on large-scale stereoscopic particle...

The deployment of offshore wind and power transmission in the European North Sea is accelerating. Stakeholders advocate regional governance for the European grid expansion, which may evolve into a pan-European governance and is key to developing integrated, hybrid offshore projects. However, such projects are still scarce. We thus analyze the...

The aim of this study is to investigate the factors affecting the acceptability of a bicycle sharing system (BSS) in Mashhad, which is the first BSS to be introduced in Iran. Given the low usage rated of the BSS, we distributed a survey in all stations. 134 users answered the questionnaire. We clustered the potentially relevant factors in...

Different scholars have tried to forecast the total cost of ownership (TCO) of electric vehicles (EVs). These studies use different implicit assumptions. This research aims to develop a more comprehensive EV TCO forecasting framework based on a combination of literature review and interviews. The main finding is a framework of 34 factors that...

The dissemination of composite materials introduces applications of hybrid structures with composite and metal parts. The development of reliable methodologies to evaluate the performance of these structures is required. In this work, the mixed-mode fracture behaviour of a bi-material adhesively bonded joint is investigated. A new strain...
