  • A note on the convergence of the secant method for simple and multiple roots 

    Díez, Pedro (Elsevier, 2003-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The secant method is one of the most popular methods for root finding. Standard text books in numerical analysis state that the secant method is super linear: the rate of convergence is set by the gold number. Never- theless, ...

    Article
    Open Access
    Beliche Dam, a zoned earthdam with rockfill shouldersand a central clay core, experienced large collapse settlements due to reservoir impounding and direct action of rainfall. Long-term field records of vertical and ...
  • A technique to composite a modified Newton's method for solving nonlinear equations 

    Grau Sánchez, Miguel; Díaz Barrero, José Luis (2011-05-02)
    External research report
    Open Access
    A zero-finding technique for solving nonlinear equations more efficiently than they usually are with traditional iterative methods in which the order of convergence is improved is presented. The key idea in deriving this ...

    Article
    Open Access
    In the paper by Cominetti and Correa (2001) [Common-lines and passenger assignment in congested transit networks. Transportation Science 35 (3), pp 250-267], an extension to the common-lines problem for general multidestination ...
  • Accurate recovery-based upper error bounds for the extended finite element framework 

    Ródenas García, Juan José; González Estrada, O. A.; Díez, Pedro; Fuenmayor, F. J. (2010-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper introduces a recovery-type error estimator yielding upper bounds of the error in energy norm for linear elastic fracture mechanics problems solved using the extended finite element method (XFEM). The paper can ...

    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Simulation-based management of processes has always been a big challenge because of the difficulty to merge two apparently opposed idea s: the real time handling demanded by the process, and the traditionally strong ...
  • An approximate expression to estimate signal-to-noise improvement in cylindrical near-field measurements

    Claesson, Anders; Kitaev, Sergey; Mier Vinué, Anna de (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    Bicubic maps are in bijection with (0 ; 1)-trees. We introduce two new ways of decomposing (0 ; 1)-trees. Using this we de ne an endofunc- tion on (0 ; 1)-trees, and thus also on bicubic maps. We show that ...
