Design, development and evaluation of a wireless system for the automatic identification of implements
Monitoring operative conditions is one of the most important aspects of modern agricultural management. In order to improve data collection efficiency, it is necessary to develop an automated system that collects data on ...
A methodology for designing and evaluating alternative cropping systems: Application on dairy and arable farms
To improve the sustainability of agricultural systems of the Lombardia region (northern Italy), a mixed indicator-model-expert approach was used. Starting from the results of a previous assessment of current management ...
A comparison of the functional traits of Common reed (Phragmites australis) in Northern China: Aquatic vs. terrestrial ecotypes
(Public Library of Science, 2014)
Common reed (Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud.) is distributed widely throughout the world with various ecotypes. This research compares the functional traits and biomass allocation patterns of two contrasting ...
Evaluation of vaginal discharge with the Metricheck device and the relationship to reproductive performance in postpartum dairy cows
(Wiley: 12 months, 2014)
Vaginal mucus during estrus was examined with the Metricheck device and the relationship to the reproduction of high-yielding dairy cows was studied. The study was conducted in 99 dairy herds located in Western Germany and ...
Web service contracting: specification and reasoning with SCIFF
The semantic web vision will facilitate automation of many tasks, including the location and dynamic reconfiguration of web services. In this article, we are concerned with a specific stage of web service location, called, ...
"Menschen wie wir": Literarische Figuren charakterisieren anhand von Dürrenmatts "Der Besuch der alten Dame"
Kaum ein anderes Werk der klassischen Moderne eignet sich für die Vertiefung und weiterführende Einübung der Schreibform »Literarische Charakteristik« so gut wie Friedrich Dürrenmatts tragische Komödie »Der Besuch der alten ...
Phelps’ Lemma, Danes’ Drop theorem and Ekeland’s principle in locally convex spaces
A generalization of Phelps' lemma to locally convex spaces is proven, applying its well-known Banach space version. We show the equivalence of this theorem, Ekeland's principle and Danes' drop theorem in locally convex ...
Modeling the Reaction Kinetics During Hydrothermal Carbonization of Waste Biomass
Dynamics of large wood during a flash flood in two mountain catchments
(European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 2015)
Understanding and modelling the dynamics of large wood (LW) in rivers during flood events has spurred a great deal of research in recent years. However, few studies have documented the effect of high-magnitude flash floods ...
Remarks on the algorithm of Sakawa for optimal control problems
A general optimal control problem for ordinary differential equations is considered. For this problem, some improvements of the algorithm of Sakawa are discussed. We avoid any convexity assumption and show with an example ...
