A MAP approach for convex nonnegative matrix factorization in the diagnosis of brain tumors
(2014)
Conference report
Restricted access  publisher's policyConvex nonnegative matrix factorization is a blind signal separation technique that has previously demonstrated to be wellsuited for the task of human brain tumor diagnosis from magnetic resonance spectroscopy data. This ... 
A map characterizing the fuzzy points and columns of a Tindistinguishability operator
(200510)
Article
Open AccessA new map (ΛE) between fuzzy subsets of a universe X endowed with a Tindistinguishability operator E is introduced. The main feature of ΛE is that it has the columns of E as fixed points, and thus it provides us with a ... 
A margin adaptive scheduling algorithm for FBMC/OQAM systems
(2014)
Conference report
Restricted access  publisher's policyThis paper addresses the margin adaptive problem for the filter bank multicarrier (FBMC) modulation based on the offset QAM (OQAM), referred to as FBMC/OQAM. The analysis conducted in this paper reveals that due to the ... 
A massive data processing approach for effective trustworthiness in online learning groups
(20150610)
Article
Open AccessThis paper proposes a trustworthinessbased approach for the design of secure learning activities in online learning groups. Although computersupported collaborative learning has been widely adopted in many educational ...

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
(Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 201506)
Article
Open AccessThe analysis of markets with indivisible goods and fixed exogenous prices has played an important role in economic models, especially in relation to wage rigidity and unemployment. This paper provides a novel mathematical ...

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 ...
