How do multiple resists work together?

Most "resists" apply only to your hull. Resistance values are additive, but are subject to diminishing returns. For example, I can use Hazard Emitters, Engineering Team, and Brace for Impact for a total Kinetic resistance of 107% or so, but after diminishing returns, this turns into 49.5%.
The damage resistance to shields that comes from abilities such as Emergency Power to Shields and Science Team works only on damage taken to your shields. I haven't done any testing to know if those are subject to diminishing returns, but since there are far fewer abilities that provide such a benefit, they might not be.
