Enabling cycling at the home side or at the activity side of transit trips has been recognized as a promising solution to address transit network discrepancies and enhance connectivity between residents and employment opportunities. However, this multimodal solution is conditional to bicycle parking and cycle lanes, and urban planners need...

Triose phosphate utilization (TPU) limitation is one of the three biochemical limitations of photosynthetic CO<sub>2</sub> assimilation rate in C<sub>3</sub> plants. Under TPU limitation, abrupt and large transitions in light intensity cause damped oscillations in photosynthesis. When plants are salt-stressed, photosynthesis is often down...

Short-haul flights, known for their high carbon intensity relative to distance, are increasingly challenged by high-speed rail (HSR), a viable and environmentally friendly alternative. This study develops a model adapting the “Transit Network Design and Frequency Setting Problem” to high-speed rail, focusing on optimizing existing networks...

The utility network cadastre in Serbia is the main register of the utility lines and rights to them, together with the property owner’s rights. The legal aspects of the utility network cadastre in Serbia is organized the same way like in real estate cadastre. For this reason, the extended LADM utility network data model for Serbia is developed...

The parcel transport industry utilizes automated parcel sorting systems to effectively manage incoming parcels. These systems typically comprise multiple infeed conveyors that converge onto a single merge conveyor for parcel merging. However, the conventional First-Come-First-Serve merging method results in reduced utilization of the merge...

Carbon sequestration involves the conversion of carbon dioxide gas into carbonates through reactions with magnesium or calcium bearing minerals, presenting a potential method to mitigate CO2 emissions and reduce their release into the atmosphere. This process can be classified into two categories: in-situ (subsurface) and ex-situ (surface). CO2...

Surgical scheduling is a complex task that requires consideration of various factors, including the probability of overtime. In this study, we address the research problem of surgery scheduling while accounting for the likelihood of exceeding scheduled operating room (OR) time. To tackle this problem, we employ integer linear programming (ILP)...

In existing standards for photovoltaic (PV) plants, little guidance is provided in the spatial allocation of pyranometers. No universal and easily scalable algorithms exist that help designers of monitoring infrastructure in solar parks choose the most representative positions for irradiance sensors. <br/><br/>To fill this gap, a software tool...

Frequentist statistics and Bayesian statistics are the two main approaches to statistical inference. The frequentist approach is commonly integrated into academic curricula, while the Bayesian approach is less frequently employed. However a comparison of the approaches, further investigating their shortcomings and advantages, might give a better...

In this paper, we derive an analytical solution to the dynamic optimal portfolio choice problem in the case of an investor equipped with a power utility function of wealth. The results are established by solving the Bellman backward recursion under the assumption that the vector of asset returns follows a vector-autoregressive process with...
