Theory of classical metastability in open quantum systems (2021)
Journal Article
Macieszczak, K., Rose, D. C., Lesanovsky, I., & Garrahan, J. P. (2021). Theory of classical metastability in open quantum systems. Physical Review Research, 3(3), 1-26. https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevResearch.3.033047

We present a general theory of classical metastability in open quantum systems. Metastability is a consequence of a large separation in timescales in the dynamics, leading to the existence of a regime when states of the system appear stationary, befo...

Detection of Spatial and Temporal Patterns of Liana Infestation Using Satellite-Derived Imagery (2021)
Journal Article
Chandler, C. J., van der Heijden, G. M., Boyd, D. S., & Foody, G. M. (2021). Detection of Spatial and Temporal Patterns of Liana Infestation Using Satellite-Derived Imagery. Remote Sensing, 13(14), 1-15. https://doi.org/10.3390/rs13142774

Lianas (woody vines) play a key role in tropical forest dynamics because of their strong influence on tree growth, mortality and regeneration. Assessing liana infestation over large areas is critical to understand the factors that drive their spatial...

Optimal sampling of dynamical large deviations via matrix product states (2021)
Journal Article
Causer, L., Bañuls, M. C., & Garrahan, J. P. (2021). Optimal sampling of dynamical large deviations via matrix product states. Physical Review E, 103(6), https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevE.103.062144

The large deviation statistics of dynamical observables is encoded in the spectral properties of deformed Markov generators. Recent works have shown that tensor network methods are well suited to compute accurately the relevant leading eigenvalues an...

Detecting Dairy Cow Behavior Using Vision Technology (2021)
Journal Article
McDonagh, J., Tzimiropoulos, G., Slinger, K. R., Huggett, Z. J., Down, P. M., & Bell, M. J. (2021). Detecting Dairy Cow Behavior Using Vision Technology. Agriculture, 11(7), https://doi.org/10.3390/agriculture11070675

The aim of this study was to investigate using existing image recognition techniques to predict the behavior of dairy cows. A total of 46 individual dairy cows were monitored continuously under 24 h video surveillance prior to calving. The video was... Read More about Detecting Dairy Cow Behavior Using Vision Technology.
