Saslow (1967) and Fischer and Ramsperger (1984) found that saccadic reaction time (SRT) depends on the interval between the fixation point offset and the target onset. Using a continuously visible fixation point, we asked whether a similar function would be obtained if subjects attended to a peripherally viewed point extinguished at variable intervals(More)
The effects of visual attention and fixation upon the distribution of saccadic latencies: express (E-), fast regular (FR-), and slow regular (SR-) saccades were investigated. Extinguishing a fixation or an attention point 200–300 ms before target onset increases the incidence of E-saccades while concurrently decreasing the proportion of SR-saccades. Since(More)
Driving style is a key factor when it comes to real-world fuel economy. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) hold the potential to support drivers in reducing fuel consumption. In this regard, predictive analysis of the road profile is a highly promising approach. This paper describes the methodology and results of a driving simulator experiment(More)
Direct measurements of sewer leakage with continuous dosing of tracers are often considered too imprecise for practical applications. However, no mathematical framework for data analysis is reported in literature. In this paper, we present an improved experimental design and data analysis procedure together with a comprehensive framework for uncertainty(More)
Due to the high energy input of aeration, the spatial distribution of air diffusers largely determines the flow field in aeration tanks. This has consequences on the efficiency of the aeration system, the performance of the aeration tank and on tank operation and control. This paper deals with these effects applying both Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)(More)
I show that entanglement between two qubits can be generated if the two qubits interact with a common heat bath in thermal equilibrium, but do not interact directly with each other. In most situations the entanglement is created for a very short time after the interaction with the heat bath is switched on, but depending on system, coupling, and heat bath,(More)
A direct approach to quantify exfiltration from sewers is the QUEST-C tracer method. In this study, the authors present a novel approach for the dynamic analysis of a tracer experiment, considering information on varying sewer flow. An assessment of uncertainty is developed that accounts for systematic and random errors in the measurements and the sampling(More)
We investigate the entanglement properties of resonating-valence-bond states on two and higher dimensional lattices, which play a significant role in our understanding of various many-body systems. We show that these states are genuinely multipartite entangled, while there is only a negligible amount of two-site entanglement. We comment on possible physical(More)
The hydraulics of water and wastewater treatment reactors has a major impact on their performance and control. The residence time distribution as a measure for the hydraulics represents macroscopic mixing in an integrated way with no spatial information. However, with regard to optimal sensor location for process control and for process optimisation(More)
