We present a linear time-varying Luenberger observer (LTVLO) using compartmental models to estimate the unmeasurable states in patients with type 1 diabetes. The LTVLO proposed is based on the linearization in an operation point of the virtual patient (VP), where...

US defence sponsored the DES program in 1974 and released it in 1977. It remained as a well-known and well accepted block cipher until 1998. Thirty-two 4-bit DES S-Boxes are grouped in eight each with four and are put in public domain without any mention of their...

We describe the \textsc{Coefficient-Flow} algorithm for calculating the bounding chain of an $(n-1)$--boundary on an $n$--manifold-like simplicial complex $S$. We prove its correctness and show that it has a computational time complexity of $O(|S^{(n-1)}|)$ (where...

Sub-Saharan Africa and other developing regions of the world are dominated by smallholder farms, which are characterized by small, heterogeneous, and often indistinct field patterns. In previous work, we developed an algorithm for mapping both smallholder and commercial...

The nonparametric minimum hypergeometric (mHG) test is a popular alternative to Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS)-type tests for determining gene set enrichment. However, these approaches have not been compared to each other in a quantitative manner. Here, I first perform...
