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)
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. However, it does not allow including relocation operations and trip uncertainty. In this paper we develop a simulation model that(More)
When the first free-floating carsharing operators launched their business, they did not know if it would be profitable. They often started in highly populated cities without performing extensive target group analysis, and were less concerned about fleet management. Usually, there are two main datasets that can be used to find areas that would have a high(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)
