A comprehensive temporal analysis has been performed on the 319 brightest GRBs with T90>2 s from the BATSE current catalog. The GRBs were denoised using wavelets and subjected to an automatic pulse selection algorithm as an objective way of identifying pulses and quantifying the effects of neighbouring pulses. The number of statistically significant pulses(More)
The sample of IRAS galaxies with spectral energy distributions that peak near 60 µm are called Sixty Micron Peakers (SMPs or 60PKs). Their generally peculiar and amorphous morphologies, hot dust and lack of a cirrus component have been interpreted as being indicative of a recent interac-tion/merger event. Mid-infrared spectra of eight SMPs, obtained with(More)
The aims of this work were to investigate how decision making in production planning happens, to understand how energy efficiency could be included as a manufacturing goal and to design a decision support system that integrates into current work practices. This case study describes the research, design and development this system. An interactive(More)
The introduction of energy efficiency as a new goal into already complex production plans is a difficult challenge. Decision support systems can help with this problem but these systems are often resisted by end users who ultimately bear the responsibility for production outputs. This paper describes the design of a decision support tool that aims to(More)
