—Co-simulation platforms are necessary to study the interactions of complex systems integrated in future smart grids. The Virtual Grid Integration Laboratory (VirGIL) is a modular co-simulation platform designed to study interactions between demand response strategies, building comfort, communication networks, and power system operation. This paper presents(More)

Abstract: We construct a set of parton distribution functions (PDFs) in which fixed-order NLO and NNLO calculations are supplemented with soft-gluon (threshold) resummation up to NLL and NNLL accuracy respectively, suitable for use in(More)
Small-x logarithmic enhancements arising from high-energy gluon emissions affect both the evolution of collinearly-factorized parton densities and partonic coefficient functions. With the higher collider energy reached by the LHC, the prospect of a future high-energy collider, and the recent deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) results at small-x from HERA,(More)
Cloud computing has recently received considerable attention, as a promising approach for delivering ICT services by improving the utilisation of data centre resources. On the other hand, the increased usage of ICT, jointly with the increased cost of energy, make designing and managing data centres with energy efficient strategies a crucial and strategical(More)
Simulation is widely used to assess and/or improve the energy efficiency of both existing and new buildings. Such an analysis has to account for heterogeneous phenomena efficiently, to manage components in a modular manner, and (which is seldom addressed in a struc-tured way) to scale the detail level in all or part of the model, based on the particular(More)
Simulation is important to evaluate the energy-related performance, of a building, and for reliable results, reproducing the behaviour of the contained air volumes is particularly relevant. This is especially true if the control system is considered as part of the simulation study, for example to determine the best sensor positioning. For such a purpose,(More)
We present an unbiased determination of the charm content of the proton, in which the charm parton distribution function (PDF) is parametrized on the same footing as the light quarks and the gluon in a global PDF analysis. This determination relies on the NLO calculation of deep-inelastic structure functions in the FONLL scheme, generalized to account for(More)
We present up-to-date matched predictions for the b ¯ bH inclusive cross section at the LHC at √ s = 13 TeV. Using a previously developed method, our predictions consistently combine the complete NLO contributions that are present in the 4-flavor scheme calculation, including finite b-quark mass effects as well as top-loop induced Y b Y t interference(More)
In this contribution I discuss recent and ongoing progress on the inclusion of resummation effects in the fit of parton distributions. Current state-of-the-art PDF sets [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] are fitted from data assuming fixed-order theory at LO, NLO or NNLO. The DGLAP evolution is consistently included at LL, NLL or NNLL, respectively. The quest for(More)
