—Process variations increasingly challenge the manu-facturability of advanced devices and the yield of integrated circuits. Technology computer-aided design (TCAD) has the potential to make key contributions to minimize this problem, by assessing the impact of certain variations on the device, circuit, and system. In this way, TCAD can provide the(More)
Initial acquisition of social skills by high school students with mild mental retardation was measured during the social skills training game Stacking the Deck. Generalization probes were conducted outside of the training setting (immediately preceding and following training, and 6 weeks posttraining). Due to the high degree of dissimilarity between stimuli(More)
The objective of this workshop was to bring together researchers working in multiscale simulations with emphasis on multigrid methods and multiscale finite element methods, aiming at chieving of better understanding and synergy between these methods. The goal of multiscale finite element methods, as upscaling methods, is to compute coarse scale solutions of(More)
CPU-intensive engineering problems such as networks of gas pipelines can be modelled as dynamical or quasi-static systems. These dynamical systems represent a map, depending on a set of control parameters, from an input signal to an output signal. In order to reduce the computational cost, surrogates based on linear combinations of translates of radial(More)
In this paper, novel methods for the PRO-CHAIN strategy are presented, and their application is discussed for an example. PRO-CHAIN enables statistical analysis and multi-objective robust design-parameter optimization of forming processes as well as forming-to-crash process chains. The strategy is built upon several software tools which allow for an(More)
We explore the Tractability Index of Differential Algebraic Equations (DAEs) that emerge in the simulation of gas transport networks. Depending on the complexity of the network, systems of index 1 or index 2 can arise. We then apply Model Order Reduction (MOR) techniques such as Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) to a network of moderate size and(More)
