Symmetric and nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials associated to root systems are very general families of orthogonal polynomials in multiple variables. Their definition is quite complex, but in certain cases one can define so-called interpolation polynomials that have a surprisingly simple definition and are related to the Macdonald polynomials...

Metamaterials are a new class of materials where the properties crucially depend on the design of the unit cell that is periodically repeated in space. In this study a new metamaterial unit cell concept has been proposed, inspired by a class of space structures known as deployable masts. The ability of these structures to contract to a fraction...

The European financial sector is a frequent victim of banking malware leading to massive losses. It appears that not all customers’ banks are equally attractive targets among cybercriminals who deploy banking malware. This research established a comprehensive regression model explaining why certain banks are more attractive to cybercriminals....

The Hondsbossche Dunes is a seven-kilometre-long dune, beach and shoreface nourishment that serves as a primary flood defence since 2015. In addition to its protective function, the Hondsbossche Dunes stimulate ecological habitat development in the coastal area, in line with Ecoshape's 'Building with Nature'-approach. Its morphologic development...

In the oil and gas industry the occurrence of slug flow in flowlines and risers can cause operational problems. Such flowline-riser systems are used to transport the oil and/or gas from the location of the wells to a production platform, where the fluids might be separated into single phases. Slug flow conditions imposefluctuations in the...

In 2008 the Red Cross Red Crescent (RCRC) started with Forecast-based Financing pilots to improve existing Early-Warning Early Action systems. Forecast-based financing is a new methodology to prepare, deliver and respond in a more effective and efficient manner, based on hazard forecasts. Actions are triggered when a forecast exceeds a danger...

The olivocerebellar system plays a central role in motor learning, crucially contributing to the coordination, precision and accurate timing of movements. The system is formed by Purkinje cells (PC), the Deep Cerebellar Nucleus (DCN) and Inferior Olive (IO). Its input activate the PC which produces simple (SS) and complex spikes (CS). The latter...

Conversion coatings are generally required to enhance organic coating adhesion and corrosion resistance on galvanized steel. Until a few decades ago, chromate conversion coatings were the most common conversion coatings in the industry owing to their exceptional performance in this regard. However, the adverse effects associated with hexavalent...

Conventional passive prosthetic feet cannot provide net positive mechanical energy, causing a strong reduction in push-off work. This decrease the comfortable walking speed and increases the metabolic cost of walking in amputees, as more than half of the positive work performed during able-bodied gait is done during the powered plantar flexion...
