On a roll: Attachment of flexible coils to the middle of a rigid rod generates T-shaped rod-coil molecules that self-assemble into layers that roll up to form filled cylindrical and hollow tubular scrolls, depending on the coil length, in the solid state (see picture); the rods are arranged parallel to the layer plane.
We have demonstrated that the rod segments with lateral dendritic chains self-assemble into unique stepped strips in which the rods are aligned parallel to the strip long axis. This unique organization of the rod segments arises from a balance between the energetic gain of a parallel arrangement of the rods and the resulting entropic penalty associated with… (More)
This paper presents an hour-ahead System Marginal Price (SMP) forecasting framework based on a neural network. Recently, the deregulation in power industries has impacted on the power system operational problems. The bidding strategies in energy market among market participants are highly dependent on the short-term price levels. Therefore, short-term SMP… (More)
