Efficient Follow-Up of Exoplanet Transits Using Small Telescopes
Here, we introduce an online tool for the prediction of exoplanet transit light curves. Small telescopes can readily capture exoplanet transits under good weather conditions when the combination of a bright star and a large ...
Investigating the Common Authorship of Signatures by Off-line Automatic Signature Verification without the Use of Reference Signatures
In Automatic Signature Veriﬁcation, questioned specimens are usually compared with reference signatures. In writer-dependent schemes, a number of reference signatures are required to build up the individual signer model ...
Lignin carbon fibres: Properties, applications and economic efficiency
(Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature, 2019-06-19)
Lignin carbon fibres are cheaper than carbon fibres from petroleum sources, but they are yet to meet the required performance for automotive applications. They supersede petroleum-based carbon fibres in terms of cost, ...
The importance of being adhesive
Phytonematodes cause annual crop losses of $100 billion per year. Pasteuria penetrans is a bacterium that has potential to be developed into a biological control agent as an alternative to nematicides. This poster is an ...
Music 2025 : The Music Data Dilemma: issues facing the music industry in improving data management
Music 2025ʼ investigates the infrastructure issues around the management of digital data in an increasingly stream driven industry. The findings are the culmination of over 50 interviews with high profile music industry ...
Silodosin oral films: Development, physico-mechanical properties and in vitro dissolution studies in simulated saliva
Sublingual film dosage forms for drugs used for fast symptomatic treatment have promise because they allow a rapid onset of action. The aim of this study was to prepare films of silodosin intended for sublingual administration ...
Statistical and Electrical Features Evaluation for Electrical Appliances Energy Disaggregation
In this paper we evaluate several well-known and widely used machine learning algorithms for regression in the energy disaggregation task. Specifically, the Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring approach was considered and the ...
Contractile dysfunction and nitrergic dysregulation in small intestine of a primate model of Parkinson’s disease : contractile dysfunction in MPTP-treated primate ileum
Bowel dysfunction is a common non-motor symptom in Parkinson's disease (PD). The main contractile neurotransmitter in the GI tract is acetylcholine (ACh), while nitric oxide (NO) causes the relaxation of smooth muscle in ...

Tribological properties of Cyperus pangorei fiber-reinforced polyester composites (Friction and wear behaviour of Cyperus pangorei fiber/polyester composites)
This paper investigated the tribological behavior of natural fiber-reinforced polyester composites. The Cyperus pangorei (CP) fiber and polyester were used as a reinforcement material and thermosetting matrix, respectively. ...
