Hypertext navigation and conflicting goal intentions: Using log files to study distraction and volit
This paper describes a theoretical analysis and experimental investigation of difficulty related distraction by conflicting goal intentions in learning and problem solving with hypertext. Log files are used to capture hypertext navigation in the face of opportunities to implement competing goal intentions. We study how differences in task difficulty influence the volitional protection of the current goal intention. First attempts to integrate volitional processes of action control into cognitive

Chemo-mechanical Coupling in Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Materials

Many energy related materials rely on transport of ions into and out of electrodes and membranes, for example, Li ions in batteries, O ions in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and steam electrolyzers, and H ions in hydrogen storage devices. Significant mechanical stresses often accompany these changes in chemical composition, also referred to as chemical expansion. For example, Pr0.1Ce0.9O2-δ, a candidate solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) cathode material, exhibits a >200% increase in its e

Owen expertly scrutinises such diverse political personalities as Sir Anthony Eden at the time of Suez in 1956; John F. Kennedy an
