A Fisher–KPP Model with a Nonlocal Weighted Free Boundary: Analysis of How Habitat Boundaries Expand, Balance or ShrinkDownload
In this paper, we propose a novel free boundary problem to model the movement of single species with a range boundary. The spatial movement and birth/death processes of the species found within the range boundary are assumed to be governed by the classic Fisher–KPP reaction–diffusion equation,...
The story of the Tä‘atu, a fish harvesting technique traditionally conducted in the Tongan village of Ha‘ano, is the closest thing the village has to a founding myth and mystical justification for the traditional estate of its hereditary chief. Here, I consider the tale...

In this paper, a piezoelectric energy harvester with a grounded and tunable multi-stable nonlinear energy sink (NES) has been developed to achieve vibration suppression (VS) and energy harvesting (EH) simultaneously. The NES consists of a cantilever beam whose free end is attached by a small...
While some species spread upstream in river environments, not all invasive species are successful in spreading upriver. Here the dynamics of unidirectional water flow found in rivers can play a role in determining invasion success. We develop a continuous-discrete hybrid benthic-drift population...
A Hierarchical Constrained Reinforcement Learning for Optimization of Bitumen Recovery Rate in a Primary Separation VesselDownload
This work proposes a two-level hierarchical constrained control structure for reinforcement learning (RL) with application in a Primary Separation Vessel (PSV). The lower level is concerned with servo tracking and regulation of the interface level against variances in ore quality by manipulating...
Accurate prediction of the number of daily or weekly confirmed cases of COVID-19 is critical to the control of the pandemic. Existing mechanistic models nicely capture the disease dynamics. However, to forecast the future, they require the transmission rate to be known, limiting their prediction...
