NEUTRINOS and DARK MATTER (DM) are the most abundant and also the most elusive building-blocks of nature because of their tenuous couplings to the ordinary matter we are made of. Each particle has a mirror image with identical mass and opposite charge: its antiparticle. What is the essential nature of particles and antiparticles? This is a most fundamental open question in science. The laws of phy ...

A diverse variety of medical or lifestyle conditions lead to a progressive loss of muscle force by functionally impairing myofibril contractility and causing ultimately myofibril loss. Major underlying risk factors of chronic muscle force loss are ageing, inactive lifestyles, and unbalanced nutrition. Together, these factors are predicted to lead to an endemic incidence of muscle weakness both in ...

InvisiblesPlus

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2020,

NEUTRINOS (Ns) and DARK MATTER (DM) are the most abundant particles in the universe. Their couplings to ordinary matter are so tenuous that they remained undiscovered -invisible- until very recently. N masses and DM constitute the first evidence ever of physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. The path to build the New Standard Model must confront the fundamental nature of the partic ...

Light Field Imaging and Analysis (LIA)

Start date: Jul 1, 2014, End date: Jun 30, 2019,

One of the most fundamental challenges in computer vision is to reliably establish correspondence - how to match a location in one image to its counterpart in another. It lies at the heart of numerous important problems, for example stereo, optical flow, tracking and the reconstruction of scene geometry from several photographs. The most popular approaches to solve these problems are based on the ...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are a rare disease that metastasises in up to 85% of patients with subsequent median progression-free survival (PFS) of only around 30 months. Tumours are characterised by activating mutations in the KIT or the PDGFRA gene and therefore treatment is mainly based on tyrosine kinase inhibitors designed to block these mutated receptors. However, drug resistance ...

Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Optimization (MINO)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

"Complex decision making in enterprises should involve mathematical optimization methods, because a “best choice” has to be made out of a huge number of feasible options. A mathematical description of such decision processes typically involves both “continuous” and “discrete” decisions. If the latter are present, the customary modelling approach is to use integer variables, which are also used to ...
