Defects that occur on train sets have to be repaired in a repair location and this has consequences on the transportation network. This paper proposes a decision support model that is developed for optimising the decisions of when and where to repair that defect train set. In practice, there is no clear overview of the effects of such decisions...

In biological cells, information from the external environment of the cell is used to make survival related decisions. For these decisions, it is important that signals are accurately transduced from the outside to the inside of the cell. In \textit{Dictyostelium discoideum}, two opposing mechanisms using G-protein coupled receptors are used for...
