Drinking as an epidemic - a simple mathematical model with recovery and relapse
This chapter discusses a simple mathematical model of drinking lapse. Problem drinking is modeled as an acquired state - the result of frequent or intense interactions among individuals in three drinking states within a ...
Clustering via ant colonies: Parameter analysis and improvement of the algorithm
An ant colony optimization approach for partitioning a set of objects is proposed. In order to minimize the intra-variance, or within sum-of-squares, of the partitioned classes, we construct ant-like solutions by a ...
Virtual Coarse Spaces for Irregular Subdomain Decompositions
On the other hand, Virtual Element Methods (VEM) [1, 12, 13] allow to handle general polygonal elements. In the case of triangular elements, VEM reduces to the usual FEM. Thus, VEM is a natural choice for constructing space ...
On the kinematics of the last Wigner particle
Wigner's particle classification provides for "continuous spin" representations of the Poincaré group, corresponding to a class of (as yet unobserved) massless particles. Rather than building their induced realizations by ...
