Agricultural and biological processes often involve complex phenomena that depend not only on time but also on other independent variables, like spatial coordinates. These processes are intrinsically distributed parameter systems whose modelling requires the adoption of (non linear) partial differential equation. Due to their complexity these models often(More)
In this paper we present a novel approach for the optimization of fresh-food supply chain by managing a trade-off between logistics and some index measuring the quality of the food itself. We propose an hybrid model of the chain, with a part constituted by a event–driven dynamics (the supply chain itself) and a part with time–driven dynamics (the dynamics(More)
Soil disinfestation by steam is an agricultural technique that is nowadays attracting growing interest for its low ecological impact and could therefore become a viable alternative to methyl bromide, that will soon banned. The current main limitation of this treatment is due to the cost of the fuel used to generate the steam. In this paper, we present a(More)
