Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have recently also been applied to solve partial differential equations (PDEs). The classical problem of pricing European and American financial options, based on the corresponding PDE formulations, is studied here. Instead of using numerical techniques based on finite element or difference methods, we...

There is a high demand for the implementation of metallic nanoparticle (NP) sintering technology for die attach in high-power electronics. The performance of this technology is superior to that of the technology involving the use of lead-free solders. Although Cu NP paste is potentially a low-cost material, it faces the challenge of oxidation...

In this article, we present QuASeR, a reference-free DNA sequence reconstruction implementation via de novo assembly on both gate-based and quantum annealing platforms. This is the first time this important application in bioinformatics is modeled using quantum computation. Each one of the four steps of the implementation (TSP, QUBO,...

Van der Waals magnets provide an ideal playground to explore the fundamentals of low-dimensional magnetism and open opportunities for ultrathin spin-processing devices. The Mermin-Wagner theorem dictates that as in reduced dimensions isotropic spin interactions cannot retain long-range correlations, the long-range spin order is stabilized by...

There is significant emission reduction potential in the Dutch vegetable oil and fat industry, which consists of seven companies each producing more than 10 kt CO2 per year, emitting a total of 0.36 Mt CO2 in 2018. Marginal Abatement Cost (MAC) curves are constructed to provide an overview of the most cost-effective decarbonisation options. Both...

Infectious diseases typically spread over a contact network with millions of individuals, whose sheer size is a tremendous challenge to analyzing and controlling an epidemic outbreak. For some contact networks, it is possible to group individuals into clusters. A high-level description of the epidemic between a few clusters is considerably...

The COVID-19 pandemic introduced novel incentives for adversaries to exploit the state of turmoil. As we have witnessed with the increase in for instance phishing attacks and domain name registrations piggybacking the COVID-19 brand name. In this paper, we perform an analysis at Internet-scale of COVID-19 domain name registrations during the...

Global interpretability is a vital requirement for image classification applications. Existing interpretability methods mainly explain a model behavior by identifying salient image patches, which require manual efforts from users to make sense of, and also do not typically support model validation with questions that investigate multiple...

Although both the Inherent Safety Principles (ISPs) and the Safe-by-Design (SbD) approach revolve around the central value of safety, they have a slightly different focus in terms of developing add-on features or considering initial design choices. This paper examines the differences between these approaches and analyses which approach is more...

This paper establishes novel methods for vehicle localization and mapping using a 1D linear automotive radar array in conjuncture with pre-existing lidar maps, and tests if the generated radar map can be made to be 3 dimensional. The basic design of this study was to implement a SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) system that co...

Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) covers the needs of energy-constrained IoT-devices for operational longevity and extended communication range in a best-effort fashion. However, Lo- RaWAN’s minimalist design cannot handle the traffic from dense deployments with more than a few hundred devices connected to a single gateway, since each LoRa...

Background: Mixed infections of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and antibiotic heteroresistance continue to complicate tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis and treatment. Detection of mixed infections has been limited to molecular genotyping techniques, which lack the sensitivity and resolution to accurately estimate the multiplicity of TB infections. In...

While regularization on graphs has been successful for signal reconstruction, strategies for controlling the bias-variance trade-off of such methods have not been completely explored. In this work, we put forth a node varying regularizer for graph signal reconstruction and develop a minmax approach to design the vector of regularization...

In high-efficiency silicon solar cells featuring carrier-selective passivating contacts based on ultrathin SiOx/poly-Si, the appropriate implementation of transparent conductive oxide (TCO) layers is of vital importance. Considerable deterioration in passivation quality occurs for thin poly-Si-based devices owing to the sputtering damage...

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a Renewable Energy Technology (RET) with a global theoretical potential of up to 30 TW. However, OTEC's economic potential is unknown as it is still an immature technology with no commercial plant operating. This paper reviews recent academic and industrial literature since 2005 to provide an overview...

Electrical simulations show that the dipole formed at (i)a-Si:H/MoOx interface can explain electrical performance degradation. We experimentally manipulate this interface by a plasma treatment (PT) to mitigate the dipole strength without harming the optical response. The optimal PT + MoOx stack results in strongly improved electrical...

Standard passive aerodynamic flow control devices such as vortex generators and gurney flaps have a working principle that is well understood. They increase the stall angle and the lift below stall and are mainly applied at the inboard part of wind turbine blades. However, the potential of applying a rigidly fixed leading-edge slat element at...

In this work we focus on texturing Al substrate in order to employ the modulated surface texturing approach for thin-film, flexible, micromorph solar cells. We deployed two different methods to induce micro-craters in Al foil, i) bare Al etching by KOH and ii) AZO sacrificial layer etched in KOH. After modelling the etching kinetics of KOH on...

Context. A double planet system or planet binary undergoes eclipses that modify the reflective light curve. In the time domain, the eclipse events are fast and weak. This would make their signal difficult to find and recognize in the phase light curve, even for small inclinations when eclipses happen frequently. However, due to the quasiperiodic...

In 2014, a Microsoft study investigated the sort of questions that data science applied to software engineering should answer. This resulted in 145 questions that developers considered relevant for data scientists to answer, thus providing a research agenda to the community. Fast forward to five years, no further studies investigated whether the...
