  • Barrodale, I (1971)
    If a continuous function is strictly quasi-convex on a convex set $\Gamma $, then every local minimum of the function must be a global minimum. Furthermore, every local maximum of the function on the interior of $\Gamma $ ...
  • Barrodale, I; Roberts, F.D.K. (MRC Technical Summary Report #1172, 1972)
    By modifying the simplex method of linear programming, we are able to present an algorithm for $l_1 $-approximation which appears to, be superior computationally to any other known algorithm for this problem.
  • Barrodale, I (2020-01-04)
    This report outlines improvements to an old algorithm for fitting L1 straight lines to data. The improvements are designed to accommodate L1 line fitting to much larger data sets than previously practical. The algorithmic ...
  • Mahmoodzadeh, Milad; Mukhopadhyaya, Phalguni; Valeo, Caterina (Water, 2019)
    A comprehensive parametric analysis was conducted to evaluate the influence of the green roof design parameters on the thermal or energy performance of a secondary school building in four distinctively different climate ...
  • Hesari, Sara Salem; Bornemann, Jens (Electronics, 2019)
    This paper proposes a new beam steering antenna system consisting of two variable reflection-type phase shifters, a 3 dB coupler, and a 90° phase transition. The entire structure is designed and fabricated on a single layer ...
  • Quiñonez-Piñón, M. Rebeca; Valeo, Caterina (Forests, 2019)
    This paper presents a scaling approach for estimating sapwood area at the stand level using knowledge obtained for individual trees of five boreal species: Populus tremuloides (Michx.), Pinus contorta (Doug. ex Loud. var. ...
  • Struchtrup, Henning (Entropy, 2019)
    Inverted quantum states of apparent negative temperature store the work required for their creation [Struchtrup. Phys. Rev. Lett. 2018, 120, 250602]. Thermodynamic cycles operating between a classical reservoir and an ...
  • Shen, Lingfeng; Wang, Ning; Ji, Xiang; Mu, Xiaomin; Cai, Lin (Sensors, 2019)
    With the fast development of commercial unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology, there are increasing research interests on UAV communications. In this work, the mobility and deployment flexibility of UAVs are exploited ...
  • Khan, Zawar H.; Imran, Waheed; Azeem, Sajid; Khattak, Khurram S.; Gulliver, T. Aaron; Aslam, Muhammad Sagheer (Applied Sciences, 2019)
    A new macroscopic traffic flow model is proposed, which considers driver presumption based on driver reaction and traffic stimuli. The Payne–Whitham (PW) model characterizes the traffic flow based on a velocity constant ...
  • Cleversey, Chantell; Robinson, Meghan; Willerth, Stephanie M. (Micromachines, 2019)
    Breast cancer often results in the removal of the breast, creating a need for replacement tissue. Tissue engineering offers the promise of generating such replacements by combining cells with biomaterial scaffolds and ...
  • Allafchi, Farzam; Valeo, Caterina; He, Jianxun; Neumann, Norman F. (Water, 2019)
    A hydrological model was integrated with a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model to determine bacteria levels distributed throughout the Inverness stormwater pond in Calgary, Alberta. The Soil Conservation Service (SCS) ...
  • Unknown author (Sensors, 2019)
    Monitoring of greenhouse gases is essential to understand the present state and predict the future behavior of greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the greenhouse gas of most immediate concern, because of its ...
  • Gan, Luyun; Yuen, Brosnan; Lu, Tao (Machine Learning & Knowledge Extraction, 2019)
    In this paper, we implement multi-label neural networks with optimal thresholding to identify gas species among a multiple gas mixture in a cluttered environment. Using infrared absorption spectroscopy and tested on ...
  • Xu, Kaifeng; Valeo, Caterina; He, Jianxun; Xu, Zhiying (Water, 2019)
    The influence of climatic variables and land use on fecal coliform (FC) levels in stormwater collected from outfalls throughout southern Vancouver Island between 1995 and 2011 are examined through statistical analyses, ...
  • Marques, Tunai Porto; Albu, Alexandra Branzan; Hoeberechts, Maia (Journal of Imaging, 2019)
    Underwater images are often acquired in sub-optimal lighting conditions, in particular at profound depths where the absence of natural light demands the use of artificial lighting. Low-lighting images impose a challenge ...
  • Zimmer, Camille; Dorea, Caetano (Microorganisms, 2019)
    Probiotic products typically take the form of oral supplements or food-based products containing microorganisms, typically bacteria. The number of bacteria present in a dose of probiotic can be several orders of magnitude ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Russell, Alan (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1995)
    This paper examines integrated computer systems for the construction industry—in particular, for “medium-sized” contractors who carry out much of the construction work performed in this country. The main focus of the ...
  • Rankin, Jeff H.; Froese, Thomas M.; Waugh, Lloyd M. (Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineers, 1997)
    Computer Assisted Construction Planning (CACP) facilitates development of initial comprehensive construction plans, which the user can customize to suit current needs. Comprehensive suggests plans that include work schedules, ...
  • Froese, Thomas M. (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1996)
    Product and process model data standards are required to provide the unifying language through which integrated computer systems for architecture, engineering, and construction can converse. STEP, the Standard for the ...
  • Yu, Kevin; Froese, Thomas M. (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1996)
    Computer-integrated Construction (CIC) must rely on the project information being shared among various computer applications used by many project participants. This information sharing is based on the development of AEC ...
