Power system resilience is defined as the ability of power grids to anticipate, withstand, adapt and recover from high-impact, low-probability (HILP) events. There are long-term and short-term measures that system operators can apply to enhance resilience. Long-term measures include infrastructure hardening and resilient planning, while short-term operational measures are applied in the pre-event, during-event and post-event phases. Microgrids (MGs) can effectively enhance resilience for both transmission and distribution systems due to their ability to operate in a controlled, coordinated way when connected to the primary power grid and in islanded mode. In this presentation, MG-based operational measures for resilience enhancement will be presented, including MG-based resilient operational planning, the systematic formation of MGs after natural disasters hit the system and the role of MGs in power system restoration.

In this short course, we will introduce some elements in deriving the hp a posteriori error estimate for a high-order unfitted finite element method for elliptic interface problems. The key ingredient is an hp domain inverse estimate, which allows us to prove a sharp lower bound of the hp a posteriori error estimator.

In this talk, I will present an innovative framework we developed to address these limitations and accurately predict pedestrian crossing intentions. At the core of the framework, we implement an image enhancement pipeline to enable the detection and rectification of various defects that may arise during unfavorable weather conditions. Following this, we employ a transformer-based network with a self-attention mechanism to predict the crossing intentions of pedestrians. This pipeline enhances the model's robustness and accuracy in classification tasks. We assessed our framework using the famous JAAD dataset. Performance metrics indicate that our model achieves state-of-the-art results while ensuring significantly low inference times.

Due to a variety of potential barriers to sample acquisition, many of the datasets encountered in important classification applications, ranging from tumor identification to facial recognition, are characterized by small samples of high-dimensional data. In such situations, linear classifiers are popular as they have less risk of overfitting while being faster and more interpretable than non-linear classifiers. They are also easier to understand and implement for the inexperienced practitioner.

One of the fundamental problems in population genetics and molecular evolution is to understand the drivers of genetic change in a population: which mutations affect the ability of an organism to survive, reproduce, and pass its genes to the next generation, while which mutations are mere "passengers" that do not affect this ability? In principle, the evolutionary history of a population contains information of the effects of mutations (deleterious, beneficial or neutral) occurring in the population.

Simulation tools capable of transient electromagnetic analysis are essential for designing and optimizing electromagnetic, photonic, and optoelectronic devices. In recent years, time-domain differential equation based solvers have found widespread use due to their advantages over integral equation counterparts in analyzing transient electromagnetic field/wave interactions and multiphysics problems. This dissertation develops a group of time-domain differential equation solvers for analyzing transient electromagnetic scattering from penetrable objects and multiphysics phenomena in optoelectronic devices. In addition to providing detailed formulations of these solvers, this dissertation presents numerical examples which demonstrate their accuracy, efficiency, and applicability to real-life problems.
