On the origin of magnetic fields in stars
(Oxford University Press (OUP) / Royal Astronomical Society, 20180905)Are the kGstrength magnetic fields observed in young stars a fossil field left over from their formation or are they generated by a dynamo? We use radiation nonideal magnetohydrodynamics simulations of the gravitational ... 
Superdirectivity from arrays of strongly coupled metaatoms
(AIP Publishing, 20180910)We explore the possibility of achieving superdirectivity in metamaterialinspired endfire antenna arrays relying on the good services of magnetoinductive waves. These are shortwavelength slow waves propagating by virtue ... 
The geochemistry of modern calcareous barnacle shells and applications for palaeoenvironmental studies
(Elsevier, 20180922)Thoracican barnacles of the Superorder Thoracicalcarea Gale, 2016 are sessile calcifiers which are ubiquitous in the intertidal zone and present from very shallow to the deepest marine environments; they also live as ... 
Convectiondriven kinematic dynamos with a selfconsistent shear flow
(Taylor & Francis, 20180911)It is widely accepted that astrophysical magnetic fields are generated by dynamo action. In many cases, these fields exhibit organisation on a scale larger than that of the underlying turbulent flow (e.g. the 11year solar ... 
Graphene electronic fibres with touchsensing and lightemitting functionalities for smart textiles
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2018)The true integration of electronics into textiles requires the fabrication of devices directly on the fibre itself using high performance materials that allow seamless incorporation into fabrics. Woven electronics and ... 
Learningbased Network Path Planning for Traffic Engineering
(Elsevier, 2018)Recent advances in traffic engineering offer a series of techniques to address the network problems due to the explosive growth of Internet traffic. In traffic engineering, dynamic path planning is essential for prevalent ... 
Landscape Analysis of a Class of NPHard Binary Packing Problems
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press (MIT Press), 2019)This paper presents an exploratory landscape analysis of three NPhard combinatorial optimisation problems: the number partitioning problem, the binary knapsack problem, and the quadratic binary knapsack problem. In the ... 
A proof of Hadjicostas's conjecture
(arXiv, 20040615)We prove a recent conjecture of Hadjicostas concerning a double integral formula involving the zeta and the gamma functions. 
Recursions associated to trapezoid, symmetric and rotation symmetric functions over Galois fields
(Elsevier, 20180414)Rotation symmetric Boolean functions are invariant under circular translation of indices. These functions have very rich cryptographic properties and have been used in different cryptosystems. Recently, Thomas Cusick proved ... 
On the Learnability of Programming Language Semantics
(Interaction and Concurrency Experience, 201706)Game semantics is a powerful method of semantic analysis for programming languages. It gives mathematically accurate models ("fully abstract") for a wide variety of programming languages. Game semantic models are combinatorial ... 
Does Large Igneous Province volcanism always perturb the mercury cycle? Comparing the records of Oceanic Anoxic Event and the endCretaceous to other Mesozoic events
(American Journal of Science, 2018)Mercury (Hg) is increasingly being used as a sedimentary tracer of Large Igneous Province (LIP) volcanism, and supports hypotheses of a coincidence between the formation of several LIPs and episodes of mass extinction ... 
On the nonabelian BrumerStark conjecture and the equivariant Iwasawa main conjecture
(Springer Verlag, 2018)We show that for an odd prime p, the pprimary parts of refinements of the (imprimitive) nonabelian Brumer and BrumerStark conjectures are implied by the equivariant Iwasawa main conjecture (EIMC) for totally real fields. ... 
DataDriven Evolutionary Optimization: An Overview and Case Studies
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 20180906)Most evolutionary optimization algorithms assume that the evaluation of the objective and constraint functions is straightforward. In solving many realworld optimization problems, however, such objective functions may not ... 
Phasechange metadevices for the dynamic and reconfigurable control of light
(Optical Society of America, 20180705)The combination of chalcogenide phasechange materials with optical metamaterial arrays is exploited to create new forms of dynamic, tuneable and reconfigurable photonic devices including perfect absorbers, modulators, ... 
Hyperspectral Analysis Applied to MicroBrillouin Maps of AmyloidBeta Plaques in Alzheimer’s Brain
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018)A recent investigation in the architecture and chemical composition of amyloidβ (Aβ) plaques in ex vivo histological sections of an Aβoverexpressing transgenic mouse hippocampus, has shed light onto the infrared light ... 
Threshold voltage control to improve energy utilization efficiency of a power management circuit for energy harvesting applications
(MDPI, 2018)This work presents a design approach that improves power management circuit (PMC) for energy harvesting applications so that more of the harvested energy can be utilized by the wireless sensor nodes (WSNs) to perform ... 
Vibration Energy Harvesting Powered Wireless Sensor Network for Structural Health Monitoring
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)This work presents a batteryless SmartMesh IP wireless sensor node powered by energy harvesting. A strain energy harvester was subjected to different simulated vibration profiles which can occur in engineering structures ... 
Auxetic structure for increased power output of strain vibration energy harvester (article)
(Elsevier, 20180908)This paper develops an auxetic (negative Poisson’s ratio) piezoelectric energy harvester (APEH) to increase the power output when harnessing strain energy. The APEH consists of a piezoelectric element bonded to an auxetic ... 
Structure of a shearline polar low
(Wiley / Royal Meteorological Society, 20170101)During March 2013 a series of polar lows originated in a highvorticity (>10−3s−1) shear zone that was associated with a prolonged marine coldair outbreak over the Norwegian Sea. A detailed analysis of one shearline polar ...
