  1. Estimating Parameters of Partial Differential Equations with Gradient Matching

    Liu, Zhongyi; Macdonald, Benn; Husmeier, Dirk; Giurghita, Diana
    Parameter inference in partial differential equations (PDEs) is a problem that many researchers are interested in. The conventional methods suffer from severe computational costs because these method require to solve the PDEs repeatedly by numerical integration. The concept of gradient matching have been proposed in order to reduce the computational complexity, which consists of two steps. First, the data are interpolated with certain smoothing methods. Then, the partial derivatives of the interpolants are calculated and the parameters are optimized to minimize the distance (measured by loss functions) between partial derivatives of interpolants and the PDE systems. In this article, we...

  3. Luminescence Dating of Beach Dunes and Fluvial Sediments, Nayarit, Mexico

    Cresswell, A.J.; Sanderson, D.C.W.; Muñoz-Salinas, E.; Castillo, M.
    The Pacific coast of the state of Nayarit, Mexico, is dominated by extensive sand dune systems and lagoons. 16 samples from three transects through dunes near the town of Santa Cruz were collected to establish ages of the beach dune ridges and establish a robust chronology, to assist in understanding the depositional rates associated with different phases of the evolution of the strand plain. In addition, three samples were collected from a fluvial terrace on the San Pedro River which enters the Pacific near the southernmost of the dune transects. Quartz grains were extracted from the samples, and analysed using...

  5. Integrating National Policies to Deliver Compact, Connected Cities: an Overview of Transport and Housing

    Rode, Philipp; Heeckt, Catarina; Huerta Melchor, Oscar; Aherd, Rudiger; Robert, Alexis; Badstuber, Nicole; Hoolachan, Andrew; Kwami, Corina
    This report explores the ways in which urban policy sectors are integrated (or fragmented) in ten case study countries: China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Germany, India, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. The analysis is based on the most recent and authoritative national-level policy documents.

  6. Pluvial (rain-related) flooding in urban areas: the invisible hazard

    Houston, Donald; Werrity, Alan; Bassett, David; Geddes, Alistair; Hoolachan, Andrew; McMillan, Marion
    This report assesses how many people in urban areas are at risk from pluvial flooding (surface water flooding resulting from intense rainfall). It projects the increase in risk due to climate change and population growth, examines the exposure of vulnerable social groups, and reviews the main policy developments to manage surface water. Flooding and flood risk management have moved up the policy agenda in the last decade, with key legislation introduced since 2009. Meanwhile, changes in insurance provision may lead to higher premiums and flood cover may become less available in flood risk areas. This report provides the first estimates of current and future populations at risk...

  7. Devolution in Practice

    Hoolachan, Andrew
    In early 2016 NLGN, in partnership with Weightmans, held a roundtable in Leeds to discuss the status and progress of devolution deals. Leaders and Chief Executives were brought together from combined authorities and a number of metropolitan and district councils. In this paper we set out the themes of the discussion and provide context and analysis on the progress of the devolution agenda.

  10. Methods of Conveying Information to Jurors: An Evidence Review - Research Findings

    Chalmers, James; Leverick, Fiona
    Paper suggests that jurors can face considerable challenges in recalling both the evidence and the legal directions in a criminal trial and that they can struggle to understand legal directions. Eight possible methods of improving juror memory and/or understanding were identified: trial transcripts, juror note-taking, audio-visual and digital presentation methods, juror questions, pre-instruction, plain language directions, written directions and structured decision aids (routes to verdict).

  12. Taking account of context in population health intervention research: guidance for producers, users and funders of research

    Craig, Peter; Di Ruggiero, Erica; Frohlich, Katherine L.; Mykhalovskiy, Eric; White, Martin
    This report is the output from a collaboration between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) – Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) and the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The report provides guidance on taking context into account in population health intervention research (PHIR) for producers, users and funders of population health intervention research (PHIR). The report includes international case examples to help researchers to think about dimensions of context that might be significant in population health interventions. The work was funded by CIHR – IPPH and NIHR.

  14. Asymptotic analysis of drug dissolution in two layers having widely differing diffusion coefficients

    Vynnycky, Michael; McKee, Sean; Meere, Martin; McCormick, Chris; McGinty, Sean
    This paper is concerned with a diffusion-controlled moving-boundary problem in drug dissolution, in which the moving front passes from one medium to another for which the diffusion coefficient is many orders of magnitude smaller. It has been shown in an earlier paper that a similarity solution exists while the front is passing through the first layer, but that this breaks down in the second layer. Asymptotic methods are used to understand what is happening in the second layer. Although this necessitates numerical computation, one interesting outcome is that only one calculation is required, no matter what the diffusion coefficient is...

  15. Big Data, Lifelong Learning and Learning Cities: Promoting City-Discourse on Social Inequalities in Learning

    Lido, Catherine; Reid, Kate; Osborne, Mike
    The Key Features of Learning Cities, published by UNESCO (2013), laid out possible indicators through which learning communities, cities, and regions could support and evaluate learning engagement and urban success, within a context of international collaboration. This briefing paper presents an overview of Learning Cities from the perspective of operationalising a range of indicators, illustrating the role of ‘Big Data’ in in this pursuit. We also argue for public engagement opportunities to be embedded within social science research. Such discourse and debate regarding individual motivations, decisions and ambitions, may highlight where lifelong learning opportunities are needed, and for the wider...

  16. Engaging with LGBT and Migrant Equalities: a Youth and Community Toolkit

    Stella, Francesca; Campbell, Monique; Williams, Ben; MacDougall, Jennifer; Liinpää, Minna; Speirs, Jenny
    This learning resource is designed to facilitate an exploration of LGBT and migrant equalities, and aligns with wider work aimed at challenging prejudice through an intersectional approach. It specifically responds to a well-documented need for more work around LGBT and race equalities in Scotland.The training and activities pack was developed through ongoing and sustained engagement with stakeholders and reflect needs and areas for further work identified by them. The resource draws on interview material collected for a project on LGBT migrants in Scotland (www.intimatemigrations.net) ; it includes a few real-life stories from LGBT migrants that touch upon themes such as...

  20. Ecosystems and Disaster Risk Reduction in the Context of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami: A Scoping Study. Report to the Keidanren Nature Conservation Fund

    Renaud, Fabrice; Murti, Radhika
    The research focused on the perceptions of communities on the role of ecosystems for disaster risk reduction, particularly in the context of the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster in Japan. The research was carried out in the region of Sendai, and a study reviewed the institutional setup and mechanisms for Japan's risk reduction, reconstruction and land use planning. Key experiences and perspectives of the local communities provide insights on how ecosystems are perceived and how the role of ecosystems during the 3/11 events was perceived. The document concludes by highlighting some research gaps and recommendation for further analyses...
