A nonlinear coupled model for the analysis of reinforced concrete sections under bending, shear, torsion and axial forces
(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 20051215)
Doctoral thesis
Open Access 
A nonlinear damping control for the vibration mitigation of the benchmark highway bridge
(200908)
Article
Open AccessActive, passive and semiactive controls have been extensively considered to improve the protection of structures against earthquakes. In this paper, we present a new nonlinear damper, which is then applied to a threedimensional ... 
A nonlinear model study on the longterm behaviour of shore faceconnected sand ridges
(200305)
Article
Open AccessA morphodynamic model is analyzed to gain further knowledge about the finite amplitude behavior of shore face–connected sand ridges observed on stormdominated inner shelves. The present work elaborates on previous studies ... 
A normal form theorem for integrable systems on contact manifolds
(2005)
Article
Open AccessWe present a normal form theorem for singular integrable systems on contact manifolds 
A note about decisive symmetric games
(200904)
Conference lecture
Restricted access  author's decisionS'estudien diverses funcions relacionades amb la presa de decisions en jocs simples. L'anàlisi es restringeix a jocs de decisió simètrics i la seva composició i es dóna per suposat que tots els jugadors comparteixen els ... 
A note about the traceability properties of linear codes
(Springer, 2007)
Conference report
Restricted access  publisher's policyWe characterize the traceability properties of linear codes. It is well known that any code of length n and minimum distance d is a cTA code if c 2¿<¿n/(n¿¿d). In this paper, we show that a less restrictive condition can ... 
A note on a conjecture of Xiao
(1998)
Article
Open Access 
A note on a nonstandard problem for an equation with a delay term
(20100701)
Article
Restricted access  publisher's policyIn this note we investigate the continuous dependence of the solutions for a theory of heat conduction with a delay term. We use energy arguments to obtain the continuous dependence results and spectral arguments to prove ... 
A note on a numerical benchmark test: an axisymmetric shell under ring loads
(199703)
Article
Open AccessIn this paper, a wellknown numerical benchmark test which is usually solved with displacement control for low values of the load eccentricity is examined for a complete range of eccentricities of the ring load. For a ... 
A note on a question of Fujita and a conjecture of Xiao
(1998)
Article
Open Access 
A note on decisive symmetric games
(2011)
Article
Restricted access  publisher's policyBinary voting systems, usually represented by simple games, constitute a main DSS topic. A crucial feature of such a system is the easiness with which a proposal can be collectively accepted, which is measured by ... 
A note on firstorder projections and games
(2003)
Article
Open AccessWe show how the fact that there is a firstorder projection with successor from the problem TC (transitive clousure) to some other problem Ω enables us to automatically deduce that a natural game problem, LGΩ, whose instances ... 
A note on interval estimation for the mean of inverse Gaussian distribution
(Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2008)
Article
Open AccessIn this paper, we study the interval Estimation for the mean from inverse Gaussian distribution. This distribution is a member of the natural exponential families with cubic variance function. Also, we simulate the coverage ... 
A note on libration point orbits, temporary capture and lowenergy transfers
(201011)
Article

A note on logical connectives with weak duality
(20150331)
Article
Restricted access  publisher's policyWe study the weak duality S(x, N(x)) = N(T (x, N(x))) where S is a continuous tconorm, T is a continuous tnorm and N is a strong negation. We characterize completely the strict cases and show that in all other cases there ... 
A note on multinomial (probabilistic) values
(2015)
Conference lecture
Open AccessThe work tries to contribute to a better understanding of multinomial values as a consistent alternative or complement to classical values (Shapley and Banzhaf). We compare the behavior of multinomial values with respect ... 
A note on symplectic and Poisson linearization of semisimple Lie algebra actions
(201503)
External research report
Open AccessIn this note we prove that an analytic symplectic action of a semisimple Lie algebra can be locally linearized in Darboux coordinates. This result yields simultaneous analytic linearization for Hamiltonian vector fields ... 
A note on tests for market integration in a multivariate nonstationary framework

A note on the application of integrals involving cyclic products of kernels
(Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2002)
Article
Open AccessIn statistics of stochastic processes and random fields, a moment function or a cumulant of an estimate of either the correlation function or the spectral function can often contain an integral involving a cyclic product ... 
A note on the convergence of the secant method for simple and multiple roots
(Elsevier, 200311)
Article
Open AccessThe 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, ...
