  1. DEAD: Dead Code Elimination based Automatic Differential Testing 

    Girsberger, Yann W. (2022)
    In their pursuit of faster code, compilers invoke increasingly more complex optimizations. Along with the increase in complexity the difficulty to identify missed optimizations and performance regressions also increases. Most existing work does not focus on finding such missed opportunities. It either concentrates on correctness, does not pinpoint the precise missed optimization, or only finds missed optimizations for specific components ...

  2. Studying Behaviour Emergence in Multi-Agent Daily Life Simulation 

    Faraji, Aydin (2022)
    Digital worlds offer an excellent opportunity for dynamic storytelling. However, adding inhabitants to a digital world that can adjust to their environment and express interesting unscripted behavior is challenging. This thesis proposes a method to combine short-term planning with long-term optimization to spark emergent behavior and maximize agents’ fitness to the environment. We show that our approach can reliably demonstrate emergent ...

  3. Robust control design towards flexible guidance for reusable space-launch vehicles 

    Gkouletsos, Dimitrios (2022)
    Rocket reusability is a key-factor for a sustainable and cost-effective future of aerospace applications. Commercial space companies, such as SpaceX and BlueOrigin, have already integrated successfully reusability by landing their launch vehicles back to Earth and reusing them for future space missions. However, there are still open challenges with respect to descent and landing phases of reusable vehicles. From a guidance and control ...

  4. Impact of natural hazards on global ecosystems 

    Vaterlaus, Lisa (2021)
    Natural hazards are a driver of ecological dynamics as they alter individual species, community structure and entire ecosystems. Their ecological impact can be highly variable over space and time: perceived by some species as disastrous but vital for the survival of others. The ability of a system to cope with such events is called ecological resilience and depends on biotic and abiotic factors, as well as the disturbance legacies. With ...

  7. Game Theoretic Planning for Autonomous Vehicles 

    Schmid, Marco (2022)
    Ever since the emergence of the commercial automobile in the early 20th century, road safety, congestion, and comfort while driving have been a constant concern for traffic and automotive engineers. A solution that addresses all of these points is the Autonomous Vehicle (AV). With the advent of systems that can do billions of calculations per second in the last three decades, it finally became possible to implement cars that could be ...

  8. Discrete and tremor seismicity near a microseismic stick-slip asperity at the base of an Alpine glacier 

    Köpfli, Manuela (2021)
    Frictional resistance at the base of glacial ice controls ice sheet dynamics but is still incompletely understood. While basal sliding theories are traditionally based on slow and smooth sliding on a friction-less bed caused by viscous creep and regelation, frictional sliding at distinct patches of the glacier bed ('asperities') may also play a significant role. With the help of a dense borehole seismometer network within 30\,m of an ...

  9. Embedded code generation with a domain-specific language for convex optimization 

    Schaller, Maximilian (2022)
    Convex optimization applies to numerous fields including signal and image processing, control, and finance. Convex optimization problems arising in these domains are often required to be solved at high frequency, possibly on embedded devices, yielding two main challenges. First, problems need to be reformulated to the restrictive standard forms accepted by numerical solvers. Second, the software implementation should compile into a fast ...

  10. Assessing Tropical Cyclone Risk along Global Value Chains 

    Tobler, Kaspar (2018)
    In this thesis project we developed an extension to the existing open-source disaster impact model CLIMADA. The new functionality enables model users to assess direct tropical cyclone risk of distinct sectors of the global economy separately. Furthermore and most importantly, it allows the analysis of indirect tropical cyclone risk arising from sector-sector interdependencies nationally, regionally and globally. For indirect risk estimation ...

  12. Willems’ Fundamental Lemma for Periodic Behavior 

    Tong, Guanchun (2022)
    The system behavior, the kernel representation and the structured data matrix constitute a closely interconnected trinity for both linear time-invariant systems and linear periodic systems. From this vantage point, we introduce a new class of structured matrices termed Antelope matrix and prove Willems et.al’s fundamental lemma for linear periodic systems. This extension serves as a modest step towards the nonlinear regime as well as gives ...

  13. Further Development of the Wildfire Module in CLIMADA by Integrating Physical Constraints 

    Gübeli, Samuel Oliver (2022)
    Wildfires are among the most destructive natural hazards and lead to substantial economic impacts. Therefore, assessing and quantifying their economic risk is of great interest to governmental authorities and (re-)insurance companies. To estimate the risk, the probabilistic wildfire module in the open-source software CLIMADA (CLIMate ADAptation) simulates wildfire seasons based on a cellular automaton. In this thesis, we extend the ...

  14. Online control of quadrotor and camera with MPC for robust vision-based flight 

    Jiang, Yingjie (2022)
    Micro aerial robots are applied extensively in today’s society and industry. In certain scenes where it is used for data collection like monitoring, inspection or patrolling, it is important to know the accurate position of the robot. In vision-based navigation scenarios, usually, the quadrotor equipped with a camera is controlled autonomously by a controller after the enduser sets up the goal and the flight region. In these cases, the ...
