System identification for a general class of observable and reachable bilinear systems
Jer-Nan Juang

Bilinear systems exist as a gateway between the worlds of linear systems and of nonlinear systems. A bilinear plant model constituting a state and control-input coupling term in addition to a linear term forms the simplest model of nonlinear systems. In spite of their simple form, bilinear systems are widely applied to engineering, biology and economics.

A special input sequence is designed …

Comparative study on retardation behavior of Cs in crushed and intact rocks: two potential repository host rocks in the Taiwan area
Ming-Chee Wu

The nuclear disaster of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP), caused by the tsunami following the 311 Earthquake of Tohoku, Japan, in year 2011, has awoken our memory of Chernobyl tragedy.  In fact, the media of public broadcasting had already reported the leakage of high-radioactive wastewater from the FDNPP site.  This large amount of high radio- active liquid waste (HALW) was …

Towards the refinement of forum and asynchronous online discussion in educational contexts worldwide: Trends and investigative approaches within a dominant research paradigm
Gi-Zen Liu

This paper is a phenomenological (Smith, Flowers & Larkin, 2009) critical literature review that examines and critiques the current state of research on asynchronous online discussion (AOD), also known as forum-based discussion, in primary, secondary, undergraduate, and postgraduate educational contexts around the world. Due to the explosive growth of distance and blended learning, …
