Probabilistic & Deterministic Analysis

Scientists have compiled a record of snowfall in Antarctica dating back the last 200 years. A new study of snowfall in Antarctica headed by Dr Liz Thomas shows there has been a significant increase in precipitation over the 2017 period of up to 10%. It has been reported that an additional...
In 1857, guided by the flickering light of a candle deep in a cave at Naracoorte in South Australia, the Reverend Julian Tenison-Woods stumbled across thousands of tiny bones of rodents and small marsupials buried at the base of crystal columns.

When a tsunami devastated parts of Japan's coastline in 2011, killing more than 18,000 people, it also hit the Fukushima nuclear power plant, triggering the most serious nuclear accident since Chernobyl. Parts of the damaged reactors are still highly contaminated with radiation and robotics are playing a crucial part...
Acceptance testing (Factory, Site, Operational, etc.), are tests conducted to determine if the requirements of a specification or contract are fully met. Checking is performed to a system to ensure that processes and procedures are in place to allow the systems to be used and maintained throughout operation. With...
The LHC normally collides protons into each other. If two protons travelling in opposite directions pass very close to one another within CMS or ATLAS, however, photons radiated from each proton can collide and produce new particles. Precision spectrometers situated on either side of CMS experiment, and a similar...
