In this paper, seaweed cultivation is mathematically modelled. The potential use of the crop to consume by-products from ethanol production is considered with a feasibility study and simple financial model. The growth of seaweed is described using di...

This special Section of the ANZIAM Journal (Electronic Supplement) contains the refereed papers from the 2014 Mathematics and Statistics in Industry Study Group (MISG 2014) held at QUT from 28 January to 1 February 2014. The MISG is a special interes...

We analyse a model of the fluid flow between elastic walls simulating arteries actively interacting with the blood. The lubrication theory for the flow is coupled with the pressure and shear stress from the walls. The resulting nonlinear partial diff...

Optimal control problems of stochastic switching type appear frequently when making decisions under uncertainty and are notoriously challenging from a computational viewpoint. Although numerous approaches have been suggested in the literature to tack...

Anaerobic digestion of municipal and animal wastes provides a potentially important means of producing energy sustainably. The reliable production of methane from anaerobic digestion requires that bacteria metabolise municipal and agricultural wastes...

This Special Section of the ANZIAM Journal (Electronic Supplement) contains the refereed papers from the 12th Biennial Engineering Mathematics and Applications Conference (EMAC2015) held in Adelaide at the University of South Australia in December 20...

The main purpose of this paper is to present a novel analytical approach for pricing discretely sampled gamma swaps, defined in terms of weighted variance swaps of the underlying asset, based on Heston’s two-factor stochastic volatility model. The cl...

Electricity generation is vital in developed countries to power the many mechanical and electrical devices that people require. Unfortunately electricity generation is costly. Although electricity can be generated easily but not normally stored. Elec...

The mathematical modelling of deformable, permeable screen doors was explored to assess their behaviour under wind loading. A load-response model was proposed whereby the wind load was modelled using a simplified approach that allowed it to be approx...

We develop a dataset describing variables associated with six Falklands War battles: combatant numbers; deaths; temporal aspects; and offensive support. Linear relationships between battle duration and deaths necessitate using force and loss ratios t...
