Hi all,

I am currently writing my master thesis on "Optimizing the transition from Design Thinking to Scrum in a co-creation approach" at Munich University of Applied Sciences. For the empirical part I am looking for

**experts**in the university context (lecturers, professors, PhD students) who drive an**integrated approach**of**DesignThinking**and**Scrum**(similar to CIL Solution Delivery Approach: https://www.co-inno-lab.org/cil-ansatz) within student projects. Do you know anyone who teaches in this area or even a university course that includes such an approach?I appreciate any tips - Thank you!

Short history: was building a code in Scilab and at some point, needed to integrate e^e^x. Then I learned that not every integral of exponential is "easy". Luckily, the solution (the exponential integral function, Ei(x)) has been the matter of many articles. It is clear that to make my simulation computationally feasible I will need to use an approximation of Ei(x). I don't feel comfortable using approximations, therefore I would like to know what is the most accurate of them. I have been testing two (or three of them, if we assume that Matlab function expint() is just another approximation), the Swamee and Ohija approx. (DOI:10.1111/j.1745-6584.2003.tb02608.x) and the Barry et al. approx (https://doi.org/10.1016%2FS0022-1694%2899%2900184-5). When compared with the Matlab function expint(), the Barry et al. approx. is very similar but with clear differences at small values of x. The Swamee and Ohija approx. was the one showing larger differences of the three, it is probably the less accurate one.

I would like to know what is the approximation that Matlab uses; if there is an expint() equivalent in Scilab; and whether there is a better approximation than the two I have tested so far.

I know, I also have the option of giving up with the open-source software and just using Matlab but I still want to give it a shot 😊.

my current project is somehow related to ISR (Integrated stress response) stress pathways, I am looking for some decent antibodies that detects phospho-HRI (heme-regulated inhibitor kinase). I have found some but only detect total forms of HRI. Any suggestions?

Struggles over whose law is better is continuous but can you perceive any common factors among all laws that unite them? How to agree on some common principles? Is reconciliation possible?

I know that integration is possible but what do you perceive the best way to harmonise differences of opinion yet allow everyone to follow distinctive legislations of own sources of law?

Thanks to all in advance.

I was trying to find the generating function of the canonical transformations. Firstly it seems to me that (p

_{1},Q_{1},q_{2},P_{2}) are independent variables so I can make a Generating function that is of 3rd kind w.r.t the first particle and of 2nd kind w.r.t the second particle. So I need to find the generating function of the form $ F_{32}(p_{1},Q_{1},q_{2},P_{2}).To start with I used several methods

- I tried to make an exact differential out of the given equations

- I tried to use the partial derivatives of Generating function and tried to Integrate them with additional proper functions

- Tried to use another pair of variables

Nothing seems to work.

Please tell what I should do.

TOPKAPI (TOPographic Kinematic APproximation and Integration) model is a fully-distributed physically-based hydrological model that can provide high resolution information on the hydrological state of a catchment.

Integration of H2 storage in a two sub-systems electrolyzer and methanation helps to achieve an independent operation of methanation unit to continuously produce synthetic methane . A potential reduction of methane production costs could also be achieved by integrating a hydrogen storage facility in the system. Methanation unit can run on FLH such as 8500h when an intermediate hydrogen storage is integrated and be able to supply sufficent hydrogen. This way running hours of electrolyzer is reduced and hence less electricity is purchased.

The question is how to find out and estimate the appropriate size of hydrogen storage ?

A sequential, if-and-only-if criterion of Riemann integrability that follows from the Riemann’s definition of the integral, states that a function on a closed and bounded interval is Riemann integrable if and only if any respective sequence of Riemann sums is Cauchy for any tagged partition of the interval with norm tending to zero [1].

Although this is not a new result, it is not mentioned in standard textbooks [2-5].

However, if the previous criterion is used as a starting point to define the integral, it provides a number of educational advantages over the traditional definitions of Riemann and Darboux.

The uniqueness, the linearity, and the order properties of the integral all follow naturally and easily from the respective properties of sequence limit [1].

Moreover, the boundedness of any integrable function is not necessary to be assumed beforehand, as it can be easily proved using that a convergent sequence is bounded [1].

Further, this approach has the advantage of being “infinitesimal-friendly” (so to speak), as the integral can be realized as an infinite sum of infinitesimal quantities [6], thus giving the instructor the opportunity to further introduce the concept of infinitesimal.

Appealing mainly to mathematicians, I wonder if a work presenting such an approach would be publishable in educationally-oriented journals of mathematics.

I am currently busy with my PhD on omnichannel supply chain integration. I am struggling with the correct “terminology” in terms of omnichannel. It seems that most authors simply use “channel” or “online/offline channel”. However, since I am investigating omnichannel from a supply chain perspective, my supervisors feel that “channel” is too broad. For example, depending on the part of the omnichannel process I am discussing – the website could serve as both a

*communication*OR*distribution*channel. My supervisors feel that it would dilute the managerial recommendations at the end of the study since channel is ambiguous. The suggestion at this stage is to use the word “**omnichannels**” instead of channels (as it is more inclusive than merely using channel).For example:

*“Shopping by means of a variety of*

**omnichannels**is no longer novel but has become universal for both consumers and retailers (Cummins, Peltier & Dixon, 2016: 12). Customers expect consistent, uniform, integrated services and experiences, regardless of the**omnichannel**they use. Customers are willing to move seamlessly between their preferred**omnichannel**depending on their current situation, the time of day, or the product category.”My question(s) for other authors writing within the field of omnichannel retailing:

1) Do you think the ambiguous use of “channel” dilutes the understanding of omnichannel retailing?

2) How do you explicitly differentiate between the different uses of “channel” (as touchpoints and fulfilment channels) to clear up the ambiguity WITHOUT creating reader fatigue?

Attach is a table with a summary of the terms used across omnichannel. I attempted to answer my own question with this table – but ended up creating more questions than answers.

I thank you in advance for your time and input in this regard.

Because a human thought is interconnected with a language, what do you think about the Integration of Natural Language Processing (NLP) with Deep Learning (DP)? I think that it is the main way to build General Artificial Intelligence.

What approaches are used in the Integration of NLP with DP? What are trends in this area?

I have been trying to integrate a simple unc-122p::GFP array after microinjection by using the protocol on WormBook. I have repeated this twice, each time singling around 150 fluorescent progeny of the UV-irradiated worms. Starting from a strain with around 20% transmission, I have a couple of plates with much higher transmission, say 80 or even 90%. I thought these may be heterozygous integrants, so I singled 10 fluorescent progeny from 10 of these plates. However, this never leads to a homozygous strain, so presumably the integration wasn't successful, but how is it possible that theysuddenly show such an increased transmission nonetheless? And what could I do differently to get a proper integration? Thank you for your advice!

I have 2 different Machine Learning Model one for Face Mask Detection and another one for Person identification . The aim is to integrate both into single prediction algorithm.I am looking for the best way to combine these two models to be able to predict the outcome more accurate.

Hey, I am currently writing a paper about risks in software implementations. For that I am using an employee survey (qual + quant) plus qualitative interviews (semi-standardized). Both research methods use qual and quant questions. The evaluation of the survey will take place with graphs, means and hypothetical tests, and the evaluation of the interviews will be inductive as well as deductive. The reasoning will include a mixture of both results.

In that sense - is it correct to use the integrated mixed model design?

Warm thanks in advance!

Dear all,

Could anybody provide the names of the researchers and literature in the area:Stochastic Calculus and Stochastic Integration - Ito Integration

Thanks in advance

I am modelling an axisymmetric piezoelectric transmitter in COMSOL 5.6 and use Exterior Field Calculation (full integral) to find the pressure outside my simulation domain. This works fine when I want to find the pressure in a single point (e.g. acpr.pext(1,0)), but I want to find the average pressure over a plane surface coaxial with the transmitter, i.e. a line average due to the axial symmetry.

I haven't been able to define a line average in "Result -> Derived Values" since there is no boundary outside my simulation domain, and if I add a line in the geometry outside my simulation domain, it does not get meshed. An alternative approach would be to export acpr.pext at the line of interest (with a suitable sampling) to a text file and compute the average outside COMSOL, so far I haven't been able to export the pressure for multiple points.

Does anybody have an idea as to how I could compute the average pressure?

There are two-arguments I found in the sample size.

Hello,

I am wondering when integrating cross peaks in an HSQC spectra: is it selecting the whole desired contour from side to side? Since some spectra are so crowded and there might be a lot of overlap in 1D spectra, when we have HSQC it is difficult to select the peak to a point where we hit baseline on either side of the peak in two dimensions. Thanks in advance for your responses!

Hi,

I came across the attached journal wherein quantum efficiency of luminescent material has been calculated from their PL and Reflectance spectra as follows:

The quantum efficiency of CeO2: x% Sm3+ phosphors were also evaluated by the following equation [41]:(4)ηQE=∫λP(λ)dλ∫λ[E(λ)−R(λ)]dλwhere P(λ), E(λ) and R(λ) are the normalized intensities for the emission, excitation and reflection spectra of the CeO2:xSm3+ phosphor, respectively. The quantum efficiency of CeO2: x% Sm3+ phosphors were also evaluated by the following equation: η (λ) = Integration of [λ P (λ) dλ] /[λ ((E (λ)-R (λ) )dλ], where P(λ), E(λ) and R(λ) are the normalized intensities for the emission, excitation and reflection spectra of the CeO2:xSm3+ phosphor, respectively.

Can anyone tell me exactly how to calculate the same?

Thank you.

We review the conceptual framework and underlying assumptions of the major silvicultural practices recommended in Integrated Pest Management Strategies.

I'm working on a scientific paper within my Management Module in university about how AI and Big Data support Management Decisions. As that is a topic where one can easily lose track, I am curious about what other researchers think.

I found out about the Integrated Strategy Machine as vision for the ideal combination of human and machine forces. But the ISM encompasses other aspects beyond Management Decisions and doesn't get to the core of my research question. I begin to wonder whether AI did not yet reach a level on which it can truly support or make Management Decisions, but instead can only be supportive with administrative work, which would also be a result for itself.

Also the combination of several data basis would be necessary for AI to support managers, which is unfortunately widely prohibited by private law. Also to be considered is Moore's law which seems to come to an end - hardware developed rapidly over the last decades whereas software couldn't keep up in comparison. The development of Machine Learning seems to get to the center of attentions as it is desirable to get machines to learn with less data - not every company has access to Big Data, let alone different data basis.

I would be happy about any kind of input or opinion.

Hello

I have an income dataset and house sales dataset with a different number of records, I need to integrate these two together using R. I thought I need to create a new column in the income dataset that has the available options for each record based on the monthly income of employees and household income per month( I thought if the price equals or lower then it is an option). But I do not know if it is considered as integration or not? or if it is a good solution, I would appreciate it if someone can explain it to me.

How can we change to polar coordiantes and evalute this integral:

$$

\int_{0}^\infty \int_{0}^\infty \left(x+y\right)

^{k}

e^{-c(x+y)}d{x}d{y}$$

where $c$ is a positive constant, $k$ is a real positive integer.

Now, can we extend our result to the general case given by

$$

\int_{X_{\ell}} \left(\sum_{\ell=1}^{m}x_{\ell}\right)

^{k}

e^{-c \sum_{\ell=1}^{m}x_{\ell}} \prod_{\ell=1}^{m }d{x_{ \ell}}

$$

The integration is over $0<{x_{ \ell}}<\infty$ for $\ell=(1,2\cdots m)$.

I am thinking to develop a framework that integrates all these three governances in such a way that:

- it is in line with corporate/business aspiration
- it is in line with compliances and industry benchmarks
- it is in line with organizational structure and settings

I would like to see two major outcomes from the transition/adoption; competitive advantage and added value in the business.

Any kind of thoughts and suggestions are most welcome!

Some people believe that inclusion and integration are the same definitions. What is your viewpoint?

Do you know how to derive the capacitance from cyclic voltammetry and Galvanostatic Charge and Discharge from the first equation to the last (refer to figure)

For Cyclic voltammetry, the Ca means capacitance (or areal capacitance), Integrated i means the total volumetric charge, v is scan rate, deltaV is the operating voltage, and A is area of sample

For GCD, the Cg means the capacitance ( or areal cap), I means constant current, t is the discharge time, and the delta V is the operating voltage. In addition, why is the used formula for GCD capacitance is discharge time and not charging time???

Please include your references. :)

Religions are an important part of the cultural richness of the society and they should be respected. However, those working in science may face questions about it, as the tenets of some religions have been claimed to be against modern scientific evidence.

How do you feel about it? Do you see inconsistencies? Do they cause you unrest? Or do you have a way to reconcile science and your religion?

I am computing my biomarker data to compute out the Integrated Biomarker Index (IBR) to compare the integrated responses of multi - biomarker at different sites. As referred to (Devin et al., 2013) and also the early work proposed by (Beliaeff & Burgeot, 2002) as attached, the data of each biomarker must first be standardised according to this formula to get the standardised value known as Y. ; FORMULA; Y = (X - m)/s, Where (X) is the mean value for a specific site, (m) is the mean value for all sites and (s) is the standard deviation for all sites. Once the computation of Y is done the computation continues with the value of Z. Z value must be assigned with negative and positive sign following the expected biological effect of a certain biomarker; Z = Y or Z = -Y. However, what if the Y value computed from the first formula (Y= (X-m)/s) is already negative since the (m) value is higher than (X)? , (For example; the values of protein thiols would show downregulated level since they are oxidised from protein side chain, However, what if the Y value is already negative? so how should I assigned the Z value then?

Dear Sir/ Ma'am,

The simulation I have run here is simple uniaxial tension test with Symmetric boundary contions in X,Y and Z on ABAQUS Explicit. This was done as a Test for a VUMAT code (Hyperelastic material with near incompressibility) that I had developed. The simulation starts with a loading phase, where the Stretch in X-direction is increased from 1 to 6, and a subsequent unloading phase coming back to the undeformed state. The analysis type is a Coupled Displacement + Temperature, with the C3D8RT (Reduced Integration) element type. The VUMAT code has been validated for a uniaxial tension 1-element simulation, but shows unrealisitic deformations during the unloading phase, when I use multiple elements (I have attached the pictures below).

What could be the causes for a change in solution after mesh refinement? Any help or inputs would be helpful, I look forward to your replies.
