Gut microbes influence animal health and thus, are potential targets for interventions that slow aging. Live E. coli provides the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans with vital micronutrients, such as folates that cannot be synthesized by animals. However, the microbe also limits C. elegans lifespan. Understanding these interactions may shed light on how(More)
One-way carsharing systems allow travelers to pick up a car at one station and return it to a different station, thereby causing vehicle imbalances across the stations. In this paper, a way to mitigate that imbalance is discussed, which is relocating vehicles between stations. For this purpose, two methods are presented, i.e., a new mathematical model to(More)

Abstract The most relevant problem to manage one-way carsharing systems is the vehicle stock imbalance across the stations. Previous research proposed a mathematical model for choosing the stations' location as an approach to solve it.(More)
Traffic congestion and the associated pressure in car parking, that results from growing car ownership, require the study of innovative measures to reduce the number of cars traveling every day to the city centers, specifically single occupant vehicles. Car pooling is a system by which a person shares his private vehicle with one or more people that have(More)
