This paper reports extensive results obtained with the interior-point method (IPM) for nonlinear programmes (NLPs) stemming from large-scale and severely constrained classical Optimal Power Flow (OPF) and Security-Constrained Optimal Power Flow (SCOPF) problems. The paper discusses transparently the problems encountered such as convergence reliability and speed issues of the method. [less ▲]

Cardiac toxicity is one of the most concerning side effects of anti-cancer therapy. The gain in life expectancy obtained with anti-cancer therapy can be compromised by increased morbidity and mortality associated with its cardiac complications. While radiosensitivity of the heart was initially recognized only in the early 1970s, the heart is regarded in the current era as one of the most critical dose-limiting organs in radiotherapy. Several clinical studies have identified adverse clinical consequences of radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD) on the outcome of long-term cancer survivors. A comprehensive review of potential cardiac complications related to radiotherapy is warranted. An evidence-based review of several imaging approaches used to detect, evaluate, and monitor RIHD is discussed. Recommendations for the early identification and monitoring of cardiovascular complications of radiotherapy by cardiac imaging are also proposed. [less ▲]

The EC courts are regularly asked to rule on complex scientific and technical matters, as illustrated by cases concerning the foot and mouth crisis or conglomerate effects in merger control. In order to apprehend these technical issues, the EC courts may, like any other court, rely on experts who are appointed either by the courts themselves or by the parties. However, the law on the use of expert evidence by the EC courts is unclear on many aspects. The purpose of this article is therefore to set out briefly the law on expert evidence, to explore how the EC courts use it and to assess whether improvements are desirable. Section 2 of this article describes how the EC courts use “neutral” expert evidence (i.e., evidence obtained through an expert’s report commissioned by the court). An analysis of the case law reveals a paradox: while the status of neutral expert evidence is clearly defined by the rules of procedure governing the EC courts, such evidence is rarely used in practice. Section 2 therefore also endeavours to explain why the use of neutral expert evidence remains exceptional. Section 3 focuses on how the EC courts use “partisan” expert evidence (i.e., expert evidence that is voluntarily submitted by the parties). It shows that partisan expert evidence is the mirror image of neutral expert evidence: while its procedural status is unclear, it is widely used before the EC courts. Finally, in Section 4, it is argued that this situation is not wholly satisfactory. It is submitted inter alia that there is no convincing justification for systematic self-restraint over technical issues. Some changes are therefore explored which could be contemplated in order to improve the use of expert evidence by the EC courts. [less ▲]

The expert-system approach is well suited to manage complexes heating systems, with various energy sources and different possible strategies of heating or cooling. A specific computer tool is applied on the solar-assisted heat pump system of Fondation Universitaire Luxembourgeoise in Arlon. It is developed around a list of rules of the type : "if…then.." and the code is written in Prolog language. The main difficulty of implementing such tool is the managing of time, because every sensor or actuator reacts in real time and a decision has first to be tested and validated before issuing on-line action on the system. The main advantage of the approach is that expert-system can very easily encapsulate the experimental knowledge of the heating system manager, simply by adding some rules in the rule base. [less ▲]

This paper describes an Expert System that can detect and quantify the nonlinearity present in a given dynamical system and, subsequently, determine and apply the most suitable nonlinear system identification method. The internal workings, algorithms and decision making processes of the Expert System are discussed. For demonstration purposes the Expert System is applied to a nonlinear experimental test-rig. The results show that the Expert System is an automatic tool that will detect nonlinearity, choose the best class of model for the system under investigation and perform optimal parameter estimation, so that the resulting identified models are parsimonious and accurate.
