In this thesis we study criticality in the context of the dissipative Abelian sandpile model. The model is linked to a simple trapped random walk, giving a practical method to determine criticality for certain landscapes of dissipative sites. The main results concern the lifetime of the random walk, especially the divergence of its first moment...

The rise of e-commerce has led to a congested last-mile delivery paradigm. Increasing customer expectations have pushed carriers into a delivery market with diminishing profitability. Furthermore, the current state of last-mile delivery has high societal costs in congestion and environmental impact. To address these challenges, scientists in the...

Ethiopia is both one of the fastest-growing economies and one of the poorest countries in the world. As its population grows exorbitantly, waves of migrants are flowing endlessly into the capital city. Such a fast pace of development brings about a hallucinated future constituted by processes driven by economic and political forces pursuing...

Crowdshipping systems are receiving increasing attention in both industry and academia. Different aspects of crowdshipping (summarized as platform, supply, and demand) are investigated in research. To date, the mutual influence of crowdshipping platform design and its supply side (with participating crowdshippers) has not yet been thoroughly...

We investigate the possibilities, challenges, and limitations that arise from the use of behavior trees in the context of the automatic modular design of collective behaviors in swarm robotics. To do so, we introduce Maple, an automatic design method that combines predefined modules—low-level behaviors and conditions— into a behavior tree that...

The Abelian sandpile model was first introduced by Bak, Tang and Wiesenfeld in 1987. Since then, a lot of researchers have studied this model and similar models, all related by the concept of self-organized criticality. In this thesis, we study a variant on the classical model where dissipative and anti-dissipative vertices are incorporated in...

Rio de Janeiro has become a ’broken city’ (Ventura, 1994): rapid urbanization processes, wealth concentration, market-oriented development, governmental neglect and socio-spatial segregation have been enlarging the societal gap between rich and poor in Brazil. Those processes have shaped the fragmentation of the city, where multidimensional...
