  • Decisiveness indices are semiindices 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat (2016-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this note we prove that any decisiveness index, defined for any voter as the probability of him/her being decisive, is a semiindex when the probability distribution over coalitions is anonymous, and it is a semiindex ...
  • Some properties for probabilistic and multinomial (probabilistic) values on cooperative games 

    Domènech Blázquez, Margarita; Giménez Pradales, José Miguel; Puente del Campo, María Albina (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We investigate the conditions for the coefficients of probabilistic and multinomial values of cooperative games necessary and/or sufficient in order to satisfy some properties, including marginal contributions, balanced ...

  • Vibration control of hysteretic base-isolated structures: an LMI approach 

    Pozo Montero, Francesc; Pujol Vázquez, Gisela; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo (2016)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Seismic isolation systems are essentially designed to preserve structural safety, prevent occupants injury and properties damage. An active saturated LMI-based control design is proposed to attenuate seismic disturbances ...
  • Domino tilings of the Aztec Diamond 

    Rué Perna, Juan José (2015-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Imagine you have a cutout from a piece of squared paper and a pile of dominoes, each of which can cover exactly two squares of the squared paper. How many different ways are there to cover the entire paper cutout with ...
  • Overdetermined partial boundary value problems on finite networks 

    Arauz Lombardía, Cristina; Carmona Mejías, Ángeles; Encinas Bachiller, Andrés Marcos (2015-03-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, we define a class of non-self-adjoint boundary value problems on finite networks associated with Schrodinger operators. The novel feature of this study is that no data are prescribed on part of the boundary, ...
  • Passive and hybrid mitigation of potential near-fault inner pounding of a self-braking seismic isolator 

    Abdel Kareem Moustafa, Mohamed Ismail; Rodellar Benedé, José; Pozo Montero, Francesc (2015-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A seismic isolated structure is usually a long-period structural system, which may encounter a low-frequency resonance problem when subjected to a near-fault earthquake that usually has a long-period pulse-like waveform. ...
  • Seismic behavior of RNC-isolated bridges: a comparative study under near-fault, long-period, and pulse-like ground motions 

    Ismail, Mohammed; Rodellar Benedé, José; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (2016-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper introduces a recent seismic isolation system, named Roll-in-Cage (RNC) isolator, for efficient protection of bridges against destructive earthquakes. The RNC isolator is a rolling-based isolation system with ...
  • A Caginalp phase-field system based on type III heat conduction with two temperatures 

    Miranville, Alain; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2016-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Our aim in this paper is to study a generalization of the Caginalp phasefield system based on the theory of type III thermomechanics with two temperatures for the heat conduction. In particular, we obtain well-posedness ...
  • Obtaining consensus of singular multi-agent linear dynamic systems 

    García Planas, María Isabel (2016)
    Article
    Open Access
    There is much literature about the study of the consensus problem in the case where the dynamics of the agents are linear systems, but the problem is still open for the case where the dynamic of the agents are singular ...
