  • Algebraic K-theory of schemes and algebraic cycles 

    Neras Lozano, Gerard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-05)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this thesis, we introduce the K groups of a scheme. One of the motivations for the definition of the K groups is to prove a generalized version of the Riemann-Roch Theorem. We introduce the K groups of a scheme and ...
  • Applications of the Sinkhorn-Knopp algorithm for phylogenetic inference 

    Mateo Campo, Clara (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-01)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    En aquest treball s'estudia l'algorisme de Sinkhorn-Knopp i les seves aplicacions pel disseny de mètodes de reconstrucció filogenètica. Es dissenyen tres mètodes filogenètics ("Crossing", "$\delta$-crossing$ i Dist-crossing) ...
  • Strategies for expanding the care for Chagas Disease In Bolivia: A multi criteria decision analysis 

    Cidoncha Markiegui, Ainize (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-01)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    The aim of this project was to identify the most suitable strategies for expanding the medical care for Chagas Disease in Bolivia through the country's Primary Health Care system. Over the past decade, ISGlobal have set ...
  • Effective computation of base points of two-dimensional ideals 

    Blanco Fernández, Guillem (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This works focus on computational aspects of the theory of singularities of plane algebraic curves. We show how to use the Puiseux factorization of a curve, computed through the Newton-Puiseux algorithm, to study the ...
  • Symplectic structures with singularities 

    Planas Bahí, Arnau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The main goal of the thesis is to classify some particular Poisson structures, called b-Poisson, following results of Guillemin-Miranda-Pirés and Radko. To understand these results, this thesis contains some chapters of ...
  • Looking for transcription factor binding sites 

    Roca Lacostena, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    Transcription factors are proteins involved in the regulation of DNA transcription. Indeed they are the proteins which enable or disable the RNA-polymerase production. In order to do so, transcription factors are bound at ...
  • Numerical approximation of Poisson problems using high-order continuous Galerkin methods with static condensation 

    Pérez Álvarez, Antonio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Higher-order methods in finite elements can provide better approximations than linear methods, in some problems. This is because they can offer an exponential convergence rate of the solution. Thus, in some applications, ...
  • Study of the singularities in the flat Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker Universe 

    Hidalgo Vazquez, Sandra (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this project we have performed an study of the singularities in Clasical Cosmology, considering a flat Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker for a linear equation of state and for a non-linear one. We have computed ...
  • Non-Fourier heat conduction: The Maxwell-Cattaneo equations 

    Calvo Schwarzwälder, Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    We study the derivation, properties and solution methods of the classical and the hyperbolic heat transfer equations. Some results to approximate the hyperbolic model with the classical model for small values of the thermal ...
  • Rainbow matchings in hypergraphs 

    Cano Vila, María Del Pilar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    A rainbow matching in an edge colored multihypergraph is a matching consisting of edges with pairwise distinct colors. In this master thesis we give an overview of the results about having a rainbow matching in edge-colored ...
