Transparency, though a term that has been long-established in other older disciplines, remains an emerging concept that different stakeholders, including requirements engineers, developers, project managers, clients and end-users in information or software systems development must consider.

Reactive project scheduling is an important branch of project scheduling under uncertainty. This paper proposes a resource-constrained multi-project reactive scheduling problem (RCMPRSP) with new project arrival to minimize the adjustment cost of the baseline schedule while achieving the deterministic multi-project scheduling goal. Although the RCMPRSP aims to minimize the adjustment cost, it adds a constraint to ensure that the reactive schedule is one of the schedules with shortest possible make-span after new project arrival.

We propose a practical method to construct sparse integer-constrained cone singularities with low distortion constraints for conformal parameterizations. Our solution for this combinatorial problem is a two-stage procedure that first enhances sparsity for generating an initialization and then optimizes to reduce the number of cones and the parameterization distortion. Central to the first stage is a progressive process to determine the combinatorial variables, i.e., numbers, locations, and angles of cones.

Computer simulations are used to assess the impact of thermal insulation on the transfer of heat and moisture in the exterior walls of residential buildings. The effects of internal and external thermal insulation on a room in a terraced family house are compared using the COMSOL Multiphysics software package, evaluating the influence of the placement of expanded polystyrene thermal insulation on the distribution of heat and moisture in the external wall while monitoring the indoor air temperature during the heating and cooling regimes.

Dependence of refractive index (RI) of seawater on salinity, temperature and wavelength n (S, T, λ) in infrared band is required.However, almost all the existing empirical formulas of the RI of seawater are suitable for the visible waveband (400 nm - 700 nm). There is little report on developing the RI expression of seawater in infrared band, especially the most commonly used 1200 nm - 1650 nm waveband.

CMOS-MEMS resonators seamlessly integrated in advanced integrated circuit (IC) technology have the unique capability to enable unprecedented integration of stable frequency references, acoustic spectral processors, and physical sensors. Demonstrations of transducers leveraging piezoelectric properties of emerging ferroelectric materials such as Hafnium Zirconium Oxide (HZO) and Aluminum Scandium Nitride (AlScN) enable high figure of merit (FOM = k^2Q) resonators over a wide range of frequencies.

<p>Legged robots have demonstrated high potential when dealing with rough terrain, for which an efficient motion planner becomes crucial. This paper presents a novel approach for quadrupedal robot motion planning on rough terrain, which is both conceptually straightforward and computationally efficient. Implementing the concept of workspace constitutes the cornerstone of this method: both body poses and swing-leg footholds are chosen within their corresponding workspace.
