A Three-Dimensional Computer Simulation Model Reveals the Mechanisms for Self-Organization of Plant Cortical Microtubules into Oblique Arrays
We use a 3D computer simulation model that is based on experimental data to understand how the noncentrosomal plant cortical microtubules self-organize into specific ordered patterns in bothExpand

Meeting Inelastic Demand in Systems With Storage and Renewable Sources
TLDR
We consider a system where inelastic demand for electric power is met from three sources: 1) the grid; 2) in-house renewables such as solar panels; and 3) an energy storage device. We formulate the storage operation problem as a dynamic program with parameters estimated from real-world demand, supply, and cost data. We explore algorithms based on approximate dynamic programming (ADP) and apply them to a test data set. Expand

TLDR
In this paper, we consider wireless mobile sensor networks under extreme environments where nodes: 1) have local knowledge; 2) have limited computational power; 3) make distributed decisions; and 4) move rapidly over time. The objective of this paper is to characterize the dynamics of the information spread and obtain performance measures based on stochastic modeling. Expand
