The ability to collect, store, and manage data is increasing quickly, but our ability to understand it remains constant. In an attempt to gain better understanding of data, fi elds such as information visualization, data mining and graphic design are employed, each solving an isolated part of the specifi c problem, but failing in a broader sense: there are(More)
BACKGROUND Within an evolutionary framework of Gastrotricha Marinellina flagellata and Redudasys fornerise bear special interest, as they are the only Macrodasyida that inhabit freshwater ecosystems. Notwithstanding, these rare animals are poorly known; found only once (Austria and Brazil), they are currently systematised as incertae sedis. Here we report(More)
We consider global attractors A f of dissipative parabolic equations ut = uxx + f (x, u, ux) on the unit interval 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 with Neumann boundary conditions. A permutation π f is defined by the two orderings of the set of (hyperbolic) equilibrium solutions ut ≡ 0 according to their respective values at the two boundary points x = 0 and x = 1. We prove that(More)
We present a human-robot interactive scenario consisting of a memory card game between Hondapsilas humanoid robot ASIMO and a human player. The game features perception exclusively through ASIMOpsilas on-board cameras and both reactive and proactive behaviors specific to different situational contexts in the memory game. ASIMO is able to build a dynamic(More)
We consider global attractors A f of dissipative parabolic equations u t = u xx + f(x; u; u x) on the unit interval 0 x 1 with Neumann boundary conditions. A permutation f is deened by the two orderings of the set of (hyperbolic) equilibrium solutions u t 0 according to their respective values at the two boundary points x = 0 and x = 1: We prove that two(More)
For a family of piecewise-autonomous one-dimensional bi-stable parabolic equations, with vanishing diffusion and Neumann boundary conditions, we determine the number and Morse indices of their equilibria as a function of the number of subintervals where the equations are autonomous. We conjecture how to build their attractors in a recursive way as the(More)
Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) occurs in intertidal areas, representing a largely unquantified source of solute fluxes to adjacent coastal zones, with nitrogen being constantly the keynote chemical of concern. In Olhos de Água SGD is present as groundwater springs or merely sub-aerial runoff. The occurrence of the flatworm Symsagittifera roscoffensis(More)
