The powercapture of a nearshore, modular, flaptype wave energy converter in regular waves
(Elsevier, 20170421)Bottomhinged, nearshore flaptype wave energy converters (WECs), have several advantages, such as high power conversion efficiency and survivability. They typically comprise a single flap spanning their full width. However, ... 
An offshore wind union? Diversity and convergence in European offshore wind governance
(Taylor & Francis, 20151218)Offshore wind megaprojects in European waters have significant carbon abatement potential and increasing their number is a policy goal for several European maritime nations. But experience has shown that governance of ... 
Universal Test, Treat, and Keep: Improving ART Retention is Key in Costeffective HIV Control in Uganda

Acetylcholine modulates gamma frequency oscillations in the hippocampus by activation of muscarinic M1 receptors
(Wiley, 20170312)Modulation of gamma oscillations is important for the processing of information and the disruption of gamma oscillations is a prominent feature of schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. Gamma oscillations are generated ... 
The rare earth elements: demand, global resources, and challenges for resourcing future generations
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 20170420)The rare earth elements (REE) have attracted much attention in recent years, being viewed as critical metals because of China’s domination of their supply chain. This is despite the fact that REE enrichments are known to ... 
A Computational Investigation of the FiniteTime BlowUp of the 3D Incompressible Euler Equations Based on the Voigt Regularization
(Springer Verlag, 2017)We report the results of a computational investigation of two blowup criteria for the 3D incompressible Euler equations. One criterion was proven in a previous work, and a related criterion is proved here. These criteria ... 
Probability of noise and rateinduced tipping
(American Physical Society, 2017)We propose an approximation for the probability of tipping when the speed of parameter change and additive white noise interact to cause tipping. Our approximation is valid for small to moderate drift speeds and helps to ... 
Fabrication of bioinspired hydrophobic selfassembled electrospun nanofiber based hierarchical structures
(Elsevier, 20170221)In this letter, we present a facile approach to fabricate hydrophobic surfaces based on electrostatic field assisted selfassembly of fibers onto conductive micropillars. Hydrophobic patterns fabricated in this work are ... 
University Staff Teaching Allocation: Formulating and Optimising a ManyObjective Problem
(Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 20170715)The allocation of university staff to teaching exhibits a range of often competing objectives. We illustrate the use of an augmented version of NSGAIII to undertake the sevenobjective optimisation of this problem, to fi ... 
Alternative Infill Strategies for Expensive MultiObjective Optimisation
(Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 20170715)Many multiobjective optimisation problems incorporate computationally or financially expensive objective functions. Stateoftheart algorithms therefore construct surrogate model(s) of the parameter space to objective ... 
Constraint Handling in Efficient Global Optimization
(Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 201707)Realworld optimization problems are often subject to several constraints which are expensive to evaluate in terms of cost or time. Although a lot of effort is devoted to make use of surrogate models for expensive optimization ... 
On the Exploitation of Search History and Accumulative Sampling in Robust Optimisation
(Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 20170715)Efficient robust optimisation methods exploit the search history when evaluating a new solution by using information from previously visited solutions that fall in the new solution’s uncertainty neighbourhood. We propose ... 
Recent progress in chromogenic research of tungsten oxides towards energyrelated applications
(Elsevier, 20170408)This paper summarises the recent research on the chromogenic performance of a unique class of nanomaterials, tungsten oxide (WOx), and highlights their potential applications in energyrelated areas. WOx exhibits a wealthy ... 
An integrated model to evaluate waterenergyfood nexus at a household scale
(Elsevier, 20170407)To achieve a sustainable supply and effectively manage water, energy and food (WEF) demand, interactions between WEF need to be understood. This study developed an integrated model, capturing the interactions between WEF ... 
Cumulative impact assessment of tidal stream energy extraction in the Irish Sea
(Elsevier, 20170411)As the tidal stream industry continues to develop and move towards commercial viability, strategic planning is required to maximise its full potential. A cumulative impact assessment of tidal stream developments in the ... 
Onearmed spiral instability in doubledegenerate postmerger accretion disks
(American Astronomical Society, 2017)Increasing observational and theoretical evidence points to binary white dwarf mergers as the origin of some if not most normal Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). In this paper, we discuss the postmerger evolution of binary ... 
On the interpretation of the equatorially antisymmetric Jovian gravitational field
(Oxford University Press (OUP) / Royal Astronomical Society, 20170411)Since the odd zonal gravitational coe cients of Jupiter are nearly unaffected by the planet's rotational distortion, an e ective way of estimating the internal structure of the equatorially antisymmetric Jovian winds is ... 
Mean Values of Derivatives of Lfunctions in Function Fields: III
(Cambridge University Press (CUP) for Royal Society of Edinburgh, 2017)In this series of papers, we explore moments of derivatives of Lfunctions in function elds using classical analytic techniques such as character sums and approximate functional equation. The present paper is concerned ... 
Was the Little Ice Age more or less El Niñolike than the Medieval Climate Anomaly? Evidence from hydrological and temperature proxy data
(European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 20170329)The El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the most important source of global climate variability on interannual timescales and has substantial environmental and socioeconomic consequences. However, it is unclear how it ... 
Results from a set of threedimensional numerical experiments of a hot Jupiter atmosphere.
(University of Exeter, 20170404)We present highlights from a large set of simulations of a hot Jupiter atmosphere, nominally based on HD 209458b, aimed at exploring both the evolution of the deep atmosphere, and the acceleration of the zonal flow or jet. ...
