Airborne transmission of small respiratory droplets (i.e., aerosols) is one of the dominant transmission routes of pathogens of several contagious respiratory diseases, which mainly takes place between occupants when sharing indoor spaces. The important role of ventilation in airborne infection control has been extensively discussed in...

In recent years, there is a growing interest in small satellites for deep space exploration. The current approach for planetary navigation is based on ground-based radiometric tracking. A new era of low-cost small satellites for space exploration will require autonomous deep space navigation. This will decrease the reliance on ground-based...

Many desalination plants still struggle to control biological fouling in seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) systems as there are no standard methods to monitor this type of fouling. Strategies to control biofouling in SWRO systems have been proposed such as antifouling coating and lowering biofouling potential in SWRO feedwater through...

We present the magnetic Moment Tensor Potentials (mMTPs), a class of machine-learning interatomic potentials, accurately reproducing both vibrational and magnetic degrees of freedom as provided, e.g., from first-principles calculations. The accuracy is achieved by a two-step minimization scheme that coarse-grains the atomic and the spin space...

Magneto-/ electro-responsive polymers (MERPs) are a class of stimuli-responsive materials that are actuated when triggered by external magnetic/ electric fields. MERPs exhibit rapid, reversible, and safe multi-functional and dynamic (i.e., changing with time) properties, which can effectively be manipulated at different length scales. These...

Service lifetimes of polymers and polymer composites are impacted by environmental ageing. The validation of new composites and their environmental durability involves costly testing programs, thus calling for more affordable and safe alternatives, and modelling is seen as such an alternative. The state-of-the-art models are systematized in...

Asian cities are undergoing massive transformation in the face of globalization. Urbanization is not only part and parcel of these transformations; it is often the most visible expression of them. Three recent books explore some of these urban transformations: Marie Gibert-Flutre and Heidi Imai examine Asian alleyways as an urban vernacular...

Agricultural activities can be important source of organic pollution. In agricultural intensive areas, organic chemicals have a high possibility of entering the water cycle, which could pose a potential risk to human health. Low-cost and high efficiency in-situ techniques instead of energy and money consuming ones to control agricultural organic...

Convergent sequences of real numbers play a fundamental role in many different problems in system theory, e.g., in Lyapunov stability analysis, as well as in optimization theory and computational game theory. In this survey, we provide an overview of the literature on convergence theorems and their connection with Féjer monotonicity in the...

In the movement to decarbonize our economy and move away from fossil fuels we will need to harness the waste products of our activities, such as waste lignocellulose, methane, and carbon dioxide. Our wastes need to be integrated into a circular economy where used products are recycled into a manufacturing carbon cycle. Key to this will be the...
