Covid-19 has caught the world unprepared, partly because the lessons learnt from the 1918-1919 Influenza Global Pandemic had been long forgotten or ignored by Public Health Policy decision makers [Stephen S. Morse, 2007] [Martin C. J. Bootsma et al, 2007]. There are now less excuses for not building a robust approach ahead of future viral pandemics...

The analysis of similarities and differences between ports at the global level can help the Maritime ecosystem for different purposes, including business planning, operation, and regulation. Our methodology is demonstrated in a particular case of interest as the "short sea shipping" traffic through a harbour. However, no structural limit to the sco...

The sum Sp (n) of the power p of the first n integers, is well-known for p=1 to be n(n+1)/2, and for p=2 as n(n+1)(2n+1)/6. A general formula has been established by Faulhaber (see Wikipedia). Our approach is to step away from a pure number-based approach for the proof, and to show an alternate minimalistic proof which uses elementary geometry. The...

During Covid-19, prevention through lockdown belongs to the portfolio of Non-Pharmaceutical Intervention (NPI). The implementation of a lockdown mesure comes with a health care benefit, however with an economic and human cost: people are constrained to stay in their homes. Households hence have to live together in what we call “zero-space”, which m...

Cities are observed and compared using their monthly temperature intervals [Tmin, Tmax]. The methodology is structured by the use of Matrices of sets: a city i (line index) and a month m (among the twelve months of the year, column index) are associated to the set T(i,m) which is the temperature interval observed. The Jaccard index, which is the ca...

Containers are a convenient way for organising international goods transport, in multimodal form, by road, rail, sea.

Questions (82)
Question
I have put together a geometric method to compute the sum of the power p of the first n integers. Do you know of previous articles? A more general framework? Suggestions of applications?
Question
1. The current world challenge: efficiency increase as a must
The world context has been facing over the last few month a new energy challenge. Therefore it is advisable to revisit how we address data-based problem solving, encompassing what Internet Platform call data science.
2. How to improve energy/data efficiency?
Data gathering, data search and processing ("machine learning", deep or not), using AI in many cases, should not be repeated blindly again and again, instead of keeping records of first results, modeling structural relations from within the datasets, and sharing preliminary analysis results.
3. A candidate encapsulation of data relations and expanded set-based modeling
The Framework of Matrices of Set, enhancing and generalising the matrices of numbers halps keep data until final computation on numbers is required.
An example of application is Collaborative filtering, observing users facing products, and formulating comments.
Below some references with details:
REF1: Matrices of sets
REF2: Logical propositions and relations formulated as Matrices of Sets
REF3: Considering applications (see slides 46 to 52 below)
REF4: sets and L-sets (negative sets of what is missing, versus sets of what is presents as multi-sets)
Question
In winter, we tend to consume energy for heating. Is the outdoor temperature interval on the day [ temp_min, temp_max ] a reliable predictor of the energy consumption for heating? What type of predictor would you use?
I have worked on comparing cities through their monthly temperature intervals [1], and I am wondering if I should investigate the matter above, and develop a toolbox for it.
Please advise.
Question
This pandemic has driven us to explore various areas of research:
-health related matters [1]
-non-health impact on market and society, globally [2]
What's your experience on these? Have you had to address Covid-19 related topics in matters regarding health? Or outside of health, market and society ?
[1] Health matters started with propagation models, while specialist were preparing vaccines, and medical matters of Covid-19 in general.
Although not specialised in health, we have contributed specific models for context-dependent propagation
[2] Looking at the direct impact of Lockdown imposed during some stringent phases of Covid-19, we have developed behavioural models for households in lockdown here:
