INTRODUCTION We demonstrate a methodology that uncovers an athlete's true pacing strategy from high-frequency (≤1 km) split field data, even if affected by high gradient variation on course. The method thus opens up the analysis of many previously opaque but popular undulating professional and amateur races to scientific scrutiny. METHODS The method is(More)
This study considers pure coordination games on networks and the waiting time for an adaptive process of strategic change to achieve efficient coordination. Although it is in the interest of every player to coordinate on a single globally efficient norm, coalitional behavior at a local level can greatly slow, as well as hasten convergence to efficiency. For(More)
We present extensions to our quasi-2D cellular automata spheroid model that add a cellular kinetics module together with an irradiation and repair module. Significantly, our approach is not based on the Linear Quadratic (LQ) model, instead, we propose a simple two-parameter, algorithmic model which captures the essential biological features of(More)
Multi-dose radiotherapy protocols (fraction dose and timing) currently used in the clinic are the product of human selection based on habit, received wisdom, physician experience and intra-day patient timetabling. However, due to combinatorial considerations, the potential treatment protocol space for a given total dose or treatment length is enormous, even(More)
In recent years, online tools have increasingly contributed to both course delivery and assessment across various domains with mixed quantitative results. We examine the introduction of a regular online assessment tool ('e-quiz') delivered by the WebCT Vista content management system to a large first-year quantitative methods course at UNSW, Sydney(More)
Agent Based Modelling (ABM), a promising scientific toolset, has received criticism from some, in part, due to a claimed lack of scientific rigour, especially in the communication of its methods and results. To test the veracity of these claims, we conduct a structured analysis of over 900 scientific objects (figures, tables, or equations) that arose from(More)
We report numerical results from a 2D cellular automaton (CA) model describing the dynamics of the in vitro cultivated multicellular spheroid obtained from EMT6/Ro (mammary carcinoma) cell line. Significantly, the CA model relaxes the often assumed one-to-one correspondence between cells and CA sites so as to correctly model the peripheral mitotic boundary(More)
The growth of Trypanosoma brucei parasites in chronic infections was investigated by superimposing upon chronic infections, secondary infections in which all parasites expressed the same variable antigen type (VAT). The fate of trypanosomes in secondary infections could then be monitored using the VAT as a marker to discriminate cells in primary and(More)
