  • A Mathematical model of the spread of two viral sub-types on a Plant Leaf (Numerical Simulation) 

    Ramchand Lalwani, Nitin (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-06)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Whilst 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 ...
  • Implementation of an electro-mechanical model to couple the cardiac electrophysiological model to muscular contraction 

    Córdoba Pañella, Paula (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-01)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This thesis develops a new electro-mechanical model based on the model of Rice et al. used to couple the electrophysiological and cardiac models developed in Barcelona Supercomputing Center. This model consists in a system ...
  • Periodic motions in coupled blocks with periodic forcing 

    Martin Navarrete, Rocío (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-02)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The purpose of this report is to study the dynamics of rigid blocks subjected to an earthquake ground motion. Such study could predict whether a rigid body overturns or remains standing. In particular, three cases are ...
  • Communication indices of hierarchical product of trees 

    Girón Albert, Cecilia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    In this master's thesis we study different graph indices for two families of hierarchical trees. We recall first the construction of these graphs by using the hierarchical product of graphs on paths and stars. We name the ...
  • On the relative position of two coplanar ellipses 

    Elizalde Masia, Borja (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This work solves the problem of computing the relative position of two affine coplanar ellipses in terms of the coefficients that deffine their equations without solving the quartic equation for the intersection points. ...
  • Modelling within-host viral evolution with cross-immunity. Numerical simulation of the model 

    Van Laarhoven, Narani (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    In the last twenty years, a considerable amount of research has been done in order to mathematically study the dynamics of viruses and immunity, and HIV in particular. The aim of this thesis is to further develop a ...
  • Intersection in homology through Poincaré Duality 

    Torres Moral, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is to build an intersection product in homology classes of a smooth compact orientable manifold so that this intersection is Poincaré dual of cup product of its cohomology classes. To do this, we start ...
  • Simulación de problemas de difusión-transporte-reacción con aplicación biomédica 

    Rueda Reina, Laura (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    El trabajo consiste en la creación de un código en lenguaje MatLab para la resolución de problemas de difusión-transporte-reacción con aplicación práctica. En él se estudian dos tipos de estos problemas: Problemas estacionarios ...
  • Periodic orbits in non-smooth systems with impact 

    Hashemi, Seyedpedram (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this project we will study time-dependent non smooth systems with impatcs. We will focus in two models: the rocking block model and an oscillator with impacts. We will show how to compute, analitycally and numerically, ...
  • Cytology image cell nucleus segmentation 

    Bravo Escala, Víctor (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    A first step on the creation of an intelligence-based system, in order to improve the detection of cervical cancer cases.
