In this paper, we extend the geometric formalism of the Hamilton-Jacobi theory for time-dependent Mechanics to the case of classical field theories in the k-cosymplectic framework. © 2014 World Scientific Publishing Company.

The goal is to survey dependability modeling and analysis of software and systems specified with UML, with focus on reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS). From the literature published in the last decade, 33 approaches presented in 43 papers were identified. They are evaluated according to three sets of criteria regarding UML modeling issues, addressed dependability characteristics, and quality assessment of the surveyed approaches. The survey shows that more works are devoted to reliability and safety, fewer to availability and maintainability, and none to integrity. Many methods support early life-cycle phases (from requirements to design). More research is needed for tool development to automate the derivation of analysis models and to give feedback to designers. © 2012 ACM.

Magnetic moments: The orientation of the title single-molecule magnet was investigated by magnetic single crystal and luminescence characterization, supported by ab initio calculations, and was found to be governed by the position of the hydrogen atoms of the apical water molecules. This finding suggests that simple magneto-structural correlations can give misleading clues for research in molecular magnetism as well as in the design of MRI contrast agents.

Users face the information overload problem when downloading applications in markets. This is mainly due to (i) the increasing unmanageable number of applications and (ii) the lack of an accurate and fine-grained categorization of the applications in the markets. To address this issue, we present an integrated solution which recommends to the users applications by considering a big amount of information: that is, according to their previously consumed applications, use pattern, tags used to annotate resources and history of ratings. We focus this paper on the service for monitoring users' interaction. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

This work focuses on the transport kinetics of chemical and cellular species during wound healing. Anomalous transport kinetics, coupling sub- and superdiffusion with chemotaxis, and fractional viscoelasticity of soft tissues are analyzed from a modeling point of view. The paper presents a generalization of well stablished mechano-chemical models of wound contraction (Murphy et al., 2012; Valero et al., 2014) to include the previously mentioned anomalous effects by means of partial differential equations of fractional order. Results show the effect that anomalous dynamics have on the contraction rate and extension and on the distribution of biological species, and indicators of fibroproliferative disorders are identified. © 2016 IPEM.
