Hyperbolic tree embeddings for Bayesian inference of evolutionary trees. Viruses, like COVID-19, evolve over time as mutations in the DNA sequence constantly produce different lineages on the tree of evolution. Finding this evolutionary tree allows scientists to better understand the similarity of strains, regional outbreaks, and aids in developing vaccines. Unfortunately, there are a super-exponential ...

Experimental and theoretical insights into the fragmentation of rocks upon impact in the context of rockfall. Rockfall fragmentation is a common and very complex phenomenon that is still inadequately understood and rarely modelled. When falling rock blocks break upon impact, their shape and size change and the kinetic energy is distributed amongst fragments. To efficiently ...
