• #### Bounded synchronization in resistive multi-terminal VSC-HVDC transmission systems ﻿

(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
Conference report
Restricted access - publisher's policy
Multi-terminal VSC-HVDC transmission is a promising solution to transport energy from the generating plants to the distribution stations, and the number and size of the corresponding power grids is expected to increase in ...
• #### Bounded-width QBF is PSPACE-complete ﻿

(2014-11-01)
Article
Restricted access - publisher's policy
Tree-width and path-width are two well-studied parameters of structures that measure their similarity to a tree and a path, respectively. We show that QBF on instances with constant path-width, and hence constant tree-width, ...
• #### Bounded-width QBF is PSPACE-complete ﻿

(Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik, 2013)
Conference report
Open Access
Tree-width is a well-studied parameter of structures that measures their similarity to a tree. Many important NP-complete problems, such as Boolean satisﬁability (SAT), are tractable on bounded tree-width instances. In ...
• #### Bounding Hilbert Space dimension from Temporal Correlations ﻿

(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2009-09-09)
Master thesis
Open Access
In this work, we tackle the problem of assessing the Hilbert space dimension from the set of correlations obtained when measuring in a nonlocal black box scheme. The concept of a dimension witness and its recent applications ...
• #### Bounding steady-state availability models with group repair and phase type repair distributions ﻿

(1999-05)
Article
Open Access
We propose an algorithm to obtain bounds for the steady-state availability using Markov models in which only a small portion of the state space is generated. The algorithm is applicable to models with group repair and ...

(1998)
Conference lecture
Open Access
We propose a method to obtain bounds for the steady-state availability using Markov models in which only a small portion of the state space is generated. The method is applicable to models with phase type repair distributions ...
• #### Bounding the distance of a controllable and observable system to an uncontrollable or unobservable one ﻿

(1999)
Article
Open Access
Let $(A,B,C)$ be a triple of matrices representing a time-invariant linear system \left .\aligned \dot x(t)&=Ax(t)+Bu(t)\\y(t)&=Cx(t)\endaligned \right \} under similarity equivalence, corresponding to a realization ...
• #### Bounding the distance of a controllable system to an uncontrollable one ﻿

(1998)
Article
Open Access
Let $(A,B)$ be a pair of matrices representing a time-invariant linear system $\dot x(t)=Ax(t)+Bu(t)$ under block-similarity equivalence. In this paper we measure the distance between a controllable pair of matrices ...
• #### Bounding the output error in a buck power converter using perturbation theory ﻿

(Hindawi, 2008-07)
Article
Open Access
We show the main results obtained when applying the average theory to Zero Average Dynamic control technique in a buck power converter with pulse-width modulation (PWM). In particular, we have obtained the bound values for ...

• #### Bounds and adaptivity for 3D limit analysis ﻿

(2009-06-08T10:28:14Z)
Conference report
Open Access
In the present paper we compute upper and lower bounds for limit analysis in two and three dimensions. From the solution of the discretised upper and lower bound problems, and from the optimum displacement rate and stress ...
• #### Bounds for quantities of interest and adaptivity in the element-free Galerkin method ﻿

(Wiley and Sons, 2008-07)
Article
Open Access
A novel approach to implicit residual-type error estimation in mesh-free methods and an adaptive refinement strategy are presented. This allows computing upper and lower bounds of the error in energy norm with the ultimate ...
• #### Bounds for value at risk : the approach based on copulas with homogeneous tails ﻿

(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Secció de Matemàtiques i Informàtica, 2008)
Article
Open Access
The theory of copulas provides a useful tool for modeling dependence in risk management. In insurance and nance, as well as in other applications, dependence of extreme events is particularly important, hence there is ...
• #### Bounds of functional outputs for parabolic problems. Part I: Exact bounds of the discontinuous Galerkin time discretization ﻿

(2008-03)
Article
Open Access
Classical implicit residual type error estimators require using an underlying spatial finer mesh to compute bounds for some quantity of interest. Consequently, the bounds obtained are only guaranteed asymptotically that ...
• #### Bounds of functional outputs for parabolic problems. Part II: Bounds of the exact solution ﻿

(2008-03)
Article
Open Access
The paper introduces a methodology to compute upper and lower bounds for linear-functional outputs of the exact solutions of parabolic problems. In this second part, the bounds account for the error both in space and time. ...
• #### Bounds on the coefficients of tension and flow polynomials ﻿

Article
Restricted access - publisher's policy
The goal of this article is to obtain bounds on the coefficients of modular and integral flow and tension polynomials of graphs. To this end we use the fact that these polynomials can be realized as Ehrhart polynomials of ...
• #### Bounds on the first non-null eigenvalue for self-adjoint boundary value problems on networks ﻿

(2006-09)
Article
Open Access
We aim here at obtaining bounds on the first non-null eigenvalue for self-adjoint boundary value problems on a weighted network by means of equilibrium measures, that includes the study of Dirichlet, Neumann and Mixed ...
• #### Bounds on the possible evolution of the gravitational constant from cosmological type-Ia supernovae ﻿

(2002-01)
Article
Open Access
Recent high-redshift type-Ia supernovae results can be used to set new bounds on a possible variation of the gravitational constant G. If the local value of G at the space-time location of distant supernovae is different, ...
