  1. ADMM in Optimization and Control 

    Rey, Felix (2018)
    The alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) is a first-order optimization algorithm for solving convex problems. We study ADMM under a specialization paradigm, which means that we shape the algorithm to customize it to the optimization problem at hand. This specialization paradigm comes as a contrast to using an ‘off-the-shelf’ or general-purpose solver, which follows a ‘one size fits all’ policy. We show that algorithm ...

  4. Formamidinium lead mixed-halide perovskite by two step hybrid vacuum-solution deposition for photovoltaic applications 

    Sastre-Pellicer, Jordi (2017)
    In the past few years, perovskite solar cells have caught the attention of the photovoltaic research community due to the fast progress achieved. Indeed, power conversion efficiencies have skyrocketed from 3.8% in 2009 to a current record of 22.1%. The outstanding optoelectronic properties in combination with a potentially low-cost production have made this technology a very promising candidate in the quest towards more efficient and lower ...

  5. Thermal and hydraulic modelling and optimization of thermal networks in districts in the CEA framework 

    Rogenhofer, Lennart (2018)
    To comply with global goals for a sustainable future, changes in the energy sector are necessary. One important area of focus is the heating and cooling demand in urban zones, with 20% of total energy consumed worldwide in buildings. Approximately 70% of the energy demand used for heating is based on fossil fuels. District heating and cooling are growing markets with a large potential for decreasing energy demand and carbon emissions. ...

  6. Developement of Diagnostic Tools to Decipher Para- and Endocrine Effects of IFN Tau 

    Schanzenbach, Corina I. (2018)
    Reproductive success is indispensable for efficient animal husbandry of modern dairy farms. Nevertheless, embryonic losses occur in every second cow during the first three weeks of gestation. The comprehension of key factors involved in the reproduction events is thus a prerequisite to reveal dysregulations. The protein Interferon tau (IFN tau) is the major pregnancy recognition signal in ruminants. It is not only responsible to extend ...

  7. Changes of the Body Composition of Modern Pig Genotypes During Growth as Depending on the Dietary Protein Supply 

    Ruiz Ascacibar, Isabel (2018)
    Genetic selection towards leaner pigs has led to changes in chemical composition, growth rates, feed intake (FI), nutrient requirements and, possibly, differences in nutrient use efficiency. This thesis is part of a larger project aiming at revising the feeding recommendations for modern Swiss Large White pigs. Targeted nutrition of the current genotypes is also necessary for the improvement of nutrient use efficiency which is one of the ...

  8. Refining LA-ICP-MS Data Acquisition and Interpretation Methods for the Zircon Geochronometer in Tertiary Magmatic Systems 

    Sliwinski, Jakub (2018)
    Understanding the mechanisms that govern the evolution of magmatic systems necessitates a firm grasp on their respective timescales. To this end, a variety of mineral chronometers is employed, most notably the U-Pb system in zircon. While high-resolution methods such as isotope dilution thermal ionization mass spectrometry (ID-TIMS) provide unparalleled insight into the temporal evolution of silicic magmatic systems, the time-intensive ...

  9. Evaluating Symmetry and Order in Urban Design 

    Chirkin, Artem (2019)
    Symmetry and order are among the fundamental principles in architecture and urban design. Although symmetry and order are often associated with each other, the ways we think about the two are different. Symmetry has a precise mathematical definition; thus, in principle, it is possible to compute it. Order, in contrast, is a very vague and subjective notion. The goal of this work is to establish a link between computable symmetry and ...
