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 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 ... 
A mean field equation on a torus: onedimensional symmetry of solutions
(2003)
Article
Open AccessWe study the equation $$\Delta u=\lambda\left(\frac{e^u}{\int_\oep e^u} \frac{1}{\oep}\right)\quad \text{in }\oep$$ for $u\in E$, where $E = \{ u \in H^1(\oep): u \hbox{ is doubly periodic}, \int_{\oep} u = 0 \}$ and ... 
A measurement method to discriminate aircraft flyover noise
(2010)
Conference report
Restricted access  publisher's policyCurrently aircraft noise monitoring systems use a mesh of single microphones distributed around an airport to continuously sample the noise level. This fact requires a manual process of aircraft noise event detection and ... 
A mechanism for sandbar straightening by oblique wave incidence
(20130606)
Article
Open AccessBreaker bars in the surf zone of sandy beaches generally evolve between straight bars parallel to the shore and meandering crescentic bars associated with intense (dangerous) currents flowing seaward through rip channels. ... 
A mechanism for the generation of wavedriven rhythmic patterns in the surf zone
(200010)
Article
Open AccessThe coupling between topographic irregularities and wavedriven mean water motion in the surf zone is examined. This coupling occurs because the topographic perturbations produce excess gradients in the wave radiation ... 
A mechanism inhibiting rip channel formation for oblique waves
(World Scientific Publishing Company, 2009)
Conference lecture
Restricted access  publisher's policyPrevious numerical modelling studies based on 2DH morphodynamical model show that oblique waves tend to inhibit the formation of rip channel systems, but the mechanisms were not investigated. Field observations do not ... 
A mechanism to electrically enlarge the ground plane of handset antennas: A bandwidth enhancement technique
(201107)
Article
Restricted access  publisher's policyThere is a need of developing new techniques for enhancing the bandwidth of handset antennas without increasing the antenna volume in order to incorporate more frequency bands into the cell phones. The technique to enhance ... 
A medialaxisbased model for propagating cracks in a regularised bulk
(John Wiley & Sons, 20150217)
Article
Open AccessA new continuousdiscontinuous strategy for the simulation of failure is presented. The continuous bulk is regularised by means of a gradientenhanced damage model, where nonlocality is introduced at the level of ... 
A Mediterranean identity? The activity of the Mediterranean Cities Program
(2012)
