A Metaheuristic Framework for Bi-level Programming Problems with Multi-disciplinary Applications - Koh, Andrew
Bi-level programming problems arise in situations when the decision maker has to take into account the responses of the users to his decisions. Several problems arising in engineering and economics can be cast within the bi-level programming framework. The bi-level programming model is also known as a Stackleberg or leader-follower game in which the leader chooses his variables so as to optimise his objective function, taking into account the response of the follower(s) who separately optimise their own objectives, treating the leader’s decisions as exogenous. In this chapter, we present a unified framework fully consistent with the Stackleberg paradigm of...
Methane production and hydrolysis kinetics in the anaerobic degradation of wastewater screenings - Horan, NJ; Cadavid Rodriguez, LS
Anaerobic biodegradability and hydrolysis rates of wastewater screenings were determined using the biochemical methane potential test at 37oC. The extent and rate of screenings conversion to methane of this complex and particulate substrate were investigated and since two phases of hydrolysis were identified, corresponding to the different types of materials in screenings, a linear and non-linear model was used. No accumulation of intermediary products was observed in the first phase of hydrolysis and so it was possible to use the methane production rate and a linear model to estimate the hydrolysis rate of this phase. The measured values of 0.061...
New Aesthetics in Computer Music 1995- - Myatt, Tony
This text describes the evolution and contextual basis for the emergence of new aesthetic approaches to computer music, which were developed outside academic or subsidised art institutions, in the commercial domain, from 1995, coinciding with the widespread use of portable computers in this field. It draws upon materials developed and researched in collaboration with professional practitioners during an AHRC research project about the emergence and operation of this field of work. Artists' methods, practice, philosophical and artistic contexts are described along with frameworks for analysis, critical assessment and understanding this radical and challenging area of sound art/music practice.
Productive Tensions : Co-creative Practices in Music
This co-edited, peer-reviewed volume includes a chapter of my own ('“I could show you all I know”: Elements of co-creativity in a music theatre context.'), which relates to a practice-based research project at the Orpheus Research Centre in Music and draws on associated performances/presentations (see relational links). The volume includes an introduction that sets out key concepts and gives an overview of the field, and a postface that summarises the discussion, building from this a description of the field of research at present and setting out tasks which seem to follow. It emphasises the research context and questions of methodology...
