Experimental and computational studies were carried out on the S-shaped diffusers to determine the impact of the change in curvature of a straight-wall diffuser. A straight diffuser became a curved diffuser at completely different angles as their similar upper and lower limbs (30°/30°, 45°/45°)....
This paper presents a design approach for tuning autonomous driving controllers of road vehicles. In this regard, a bicycle vehicle model and a model predictive control (MPC) algorithm have been applied to the tracking-control lateral of autonomous vehicles. Additionally, in order to maximize...

Models that describe the spread of invading organisms often assume that the dispersal distances of propagules are normally distributed. In contrast, measured dispersal curves are typically leptokurtic, not normal. In this paper, we consider a class of models, integrodifference equations, that...

One crucial measure of a species' invasiveness is the rate at which it spreads into a competitor's environment. A heuristic spread rate formula for a spatially explicit, two-species competition model relies on `linear determinacy' which equates spread rate in the full nonlinear model with spread...

We present previously undescribed spatial group patterns that emerge in a one-dimensional hyperbolic model for animal group formation and movement. The patterns result from the assumption that the interactions governing movement depend not only on distance between conspecifics, but also on how...
(En)gendering the Nation in Pai Hsien-yung's "Wandering in the Garden, Waking from a Dream"Download
This article traces the intricate web of allusions in Bai Xianyong's (Pai Hsien-yung) short story "Wandering the Garden, Waking from a Dream" to uncover how allusion helps constitute an imagined national community for the female protagonist in the story. It draws on notions of postcoloniality and...
Boosting photocatalytic activity using carbon nitride based 2D/2D van der Waals heterojunctionsDownload
The surging demand for energy and staggering pollutants in the environment have geared the scientific community to explore sustainable pathways that are economically feasible and environmentally compelling. In this context, harnessing solar energy using semiconductor materials to generate charge...
Air-and water-stable halide perovskite nanocrystals protected with nearly-monolayer carbon nitride for CO2 photoreduction and water splittingDownload
Halide perovskites are exciting candidates for broad-spectrum photocatalysts but have the problem of ambient stability. Protective shells of oxides and polymers around halide perovskite nano- and micro-crystals provide a measure of chemical and photochemical resilience but the photocatalytic...
Recent advances in ultra-low temperature (sub-zero to 100 C) synthesis, mechanism and applications of titania (TiO2) nanoparticlesDownload
The development of titania (TiO2) nanomaterials for next-generation photonic, optoelectronic, and catalytic applications necessitates a facile and cost-effective synthetic methodology for precisely tuning the composition, phase, and morphology at nanometer scales. In this review, an attempt has...
