A mathematical approach and review of the modeling of taxi services
(2012)
Conference report
Restricted access  publisher's policyThis paper presents a mathematical model for the estimation of the key performance indicators of the taxi markets in urban areas. These key parameters are basically the demand and supply for taxi services, the waiting time ... 
A Mathematical Autobiographity
(Université du Quebéc à Montréal / Université du Quebéc à Montréal, 1980)
Article
Open AccessExtrait de son autobiographie mathématique. “Mes recherches mathématiques proviennent en partie de l’intérèt que je Porte aux problèmes de dissection. J’ai montré, par exemple, comment découper un pentagone régulier en six ... 
A mathematical framework for structural control integration
(Trans Tech Publications, 2012)
Conference report
Open AccessIn this paper, some control strategies to design decentralized controllers are developed and discussed. These strategies are based on the Inclusion Principle, a very useful mathematical framework to obtain decentralized ... 
A mathematical model for dynamic memory networks
(Iniciativa Digital Politècnica, 2011)
Conference report
Open AccessThe aim of this paper is to bring together the work done several years ago by M.A. Fiol and the other authors to formulate a quite general mathematical model for a kind of permutation networks known as dynamic memories. A ... 
A mathematical model of refinery operations characterised by complete horizontal integration of subsystems from purchase to product distribution
(2009)
Article
Restricted access  publisher's policyRefinery economics are extremely complex and involve massive amounts of operational data and decisionmaking processes; therefore, most refinery planners model and solve each subproblem sequentially and independently. ... 
A Mathematical model of the spread of two viral subtypes on a Plant Leaf (Numerical Simulation)
(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 201506)
Master thesis
Restricted access  author's decisionWhilst in humans free virus particles and host cells are assumed to be homogenously mixed, in plants, the spatial component is a key factor. The natural proliferation of the virus through a plant is known to happen from a ... 
A mathematical model to study railway track dynamics for the prediction of vibration levels generated by rail vehicles
(201201)
Article
Open AccessThis article presents a mathematical model aimed at predicting wheel–rail contact vibration force arising from wheel profile irregularities. Prediction of vibrations caused by a passing train is a basic factor in environmental ... 
A mathematical programming approach for different scenarios of bilateral bartering

A matrix derivation of a representation theorem for (trAp)1/p
(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Centre de Càlcul, 1989)
Article
Open AccessA matrix derivation of a wellknown representation theorem for (tr Ap)1/p is given, which is the solution of a restricted maximization problem. The paper further gives a solution of the corresponding restricted minimization ... 
A matrix function useful in the estimation of linear continuoustime models.
(Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2006)
Article
Open AccessIn a recent publication Chen & Zadrozny (2001) derive some equations for efficiently computing eA and ∇ eA, its derivative. They employ an expression due to Bellman (1960), Snider (1964) and Wilcox (1967) for the differential ... 
A Max coverage formulation for information dissemination in vehicular networks
(IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009)
Conference lecture
Open AccessWe consider that a given number of Dissemination Points (DPs) have to be deployed for disseminating information to vehicles travelling in an urban area. We formulate our problem as a Maximum Coverage Problem (MCP) so as ... 
A maximum approach for robust MIMO design: combining OSTBC and beamforming with minimum transmission power requirements
(2004)
Conference report
Open AccessIn this paper we address the problem of the design of a transmitter in a MultiInputMultiOutput (MIMO) space diversity system. We consider a design which is robust to errors in the channel estimate available at the ...
