Wang, Zhen (author), Xi, Kaihua (author), Cheng, Aijie (author), Lin, H.X. (author), Ran, André C.M. (author), van Schuppen, J.H. (author), Zhang, Chenghui (author)The synchronization of power generators is an important condition for the proper functioning of a power system, in which the fluctuations in frequency and the phase angle differences between the generators are sufficiently small when subjected to stochastic disturbances. Serious fluctuations can prompt desynchronization, which may lead to...journal article 2023

Ma, H. (author), Blom, H.A.P. (author)For diffusions, a welldeveloped approach in rare event estimation is to introduce a suitable factorization of the reach probability and then to estimate these factors through simulation of an Interacting Particle System (IPS). This paper studies IPS based reach probability estimation for General Stochastic Hybrid Systems (GSHS). The...journal article 2023

Fu, Sheng (author), Chen, P. (author), Ye, Zhisheng (author)The multicategory support vector machine (MSVM) has been widely used for multicategory classification. Despite its widespread popularity, regular MSVM cannot provide direct probabilistic results and suffers from excessive computational cost, as it is formulated on the hinge loss function and it solves a sumtozero constrained quadratic...journal article 2023

van Essen, S.M. (author), Scharnke, Jule (author), Seyffert, Harleigh C. (author)For the design of maritime structures in waves, the extreme values of responses such as motions and wave impact loads are required. Waves and waveinduced responses are stochastic, so such responses should always be related to a probability. This information is not easy to obtain for strongly nonlinear responses such as wave impact forces....journal article 2023

Zhang, F. (author), Yang, Y. (author), Hendriks, M.A.N. (author)To assess the structural capacity of reinforced concrete structures, identifying the internal cracks is important. Acoustic emission (AE) is promising to estimate the location of internal cracks. However, the localization is influenced by many factors like arrival time picking error, presence of crack, etc., resulting in localization error. The...journal article 2023

Chockalingam, S. (author), Pieters, W. (author), Teixeira, André M.H. (author), van Gelder, P.H.A.J.M. (author)Both intentional attacks and accidental technical failures can lead to abnormal behaviour in components of industrial control systems. In our previous work, we developed a framework for constructing Bayesian Network (BN) models to enable operators to distinguish between those two classes, including knowledge elicitation to construct the directed...journal article 2023

van Essen, S.M. (author), Seyffert, Harleigh C. (author)Green water and slamming wave impacts can lead to severe damage or operability issues for marine structures. It is therefore essential to consider their probability and loads in design. This is difficult, as impacts are both hydrodynamically complex and relatively rare. The complexity requires highfidelity modeling (experiments or CFD),...journal article 2023

Falcetelli, F. (author), Cristiani, D.L.M. (author), Yue, N. (author), Sbarufatti, Claudio (author), Sante, Raffaella Di (author), Zarouchas, D. (author)Distributed Optical Fiber Sensors (DOFS) show several inherent benefits with respect to conventional strainsensing technologies and represent a key technology for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). Despite the solid motivation behind DOFSbased SHM systems, their implementation for realtime structural assessment is still unsatisfactory...conference paper 2023

Xu, H. (author), Tan, Jinkai (author), Li, Chunlan (author), Niu, Yiying (author), Wang, Jun (author)As global warming continues to intensify, the relationship between diurnal temperature range (DTR) and vegetation productivity continues to change over time. However, the impact of DTR changes on vegetation activities remains uncertain. Thus, further study about how DTR changes affect the physiological activities of plants is also urgently...journal article 2023

Bach, Bao Gia (author), Kundu, Akash (author), Acharya, Tamal (author), Sarkar, A. (author)This work applies concepts from algorithmic probability to Boolean and quantum combinatorial logic circuits. The relations among the statistical, algorithmic, computational, and circuit complexities of states are reviewed. Thereafter, the probability of states in the circuit model of computation is defined. Classical and quantum gate sets are...journal article 2023

Pană, Paul (author)As a consequence of the difficulty to obtain complete direct information about the subsurface, and the importance of heterogeneity of soil properties in geotechnical design, a desire exists in the geotechnical community for a smarter use of the available data in common practice. The objective of this thesis is to provide a potential solution for...master thesis 2022

Le Grand, Oscar (author)Sea level rise will increase the risk of flooding in coastal areas. This poses a risk to the coastal protection as well as rivers and lakes close to the coast. Solutions are needed to cope with this threat. The past decade, nature based solutions have gained significant interest. One of these solutions could be sandy foreshores. Due to the use...master thesis 2022

van Velzen, Daan (author)Preferential Attachment models offer an explanation for why power laws are so common in realworld data. In these models, we start out with an initial network and add nodes one at a time. For each new node, we make m connections to existing nodes and if we define the attachment probability of attaching to a vertex to be proportional to its...master thesis 2022

Groot Beumer, Morris (author)Recent advancements in causal inference and machine learning research have brought forward methods to estimate effects of interventions from observational data. The augmented inverse probability weighted (AIPW) estimator is such a method, which can be used to obtain estimates of potential outcomes. Potential outcomes are defined as a...master thesis 2022

Cheng, D. (author)This dissertation collects three scientific contributions, already published in international peerreviewed journals, plus some extra considerations and workinprogress. First, we present a model based on reinforced urn processes, which conjugates to the rightcensored recovery process, and empirically apply it to the time series of recovery...doctoral thesis 2022

Rissalah, Abdellah (author)In this thesis we study an interacting particle system: the Symmetric Inclusion Process with slowly varying inhomogeneities (SIP(α)). In the SIP(α) particles display random walk like behaviour subjected to an attractive type of interaction whilst evolving in an inhomogeneous environment. We set out to prove its hydrodynamic limit. The main tool...master thesis 2022
