  • Displacement logic for anaphora 

    Morrill, Glyn; Valentín Fernández Gallart, José Oriol (2014-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The displacement calculus of Morrill, Valentín and Fadda (2011) [25] aspires to replace the calculus of Lambek (1958) [13] as the foundation of categorial grammar by accommodating intercalation as well as concatenation ...
  • Reducing the n-gram feature space of class C GPCRs to subtype-discriminating patterns 

    König, Caroline; Alquézar Mancho, René; Vellido Alcacena, Alfredo; Giraldo Arjonilla, Jesús (2014-10-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are a large and heterogeneous superfamily of receptors that are key cell players for their role as extracellular signal transmitters. Class C GPCRs, in particular, are of great interest ...
  • Predicting fecal sources in waters with diverse pollution loads using general and molecular host-specific indicators and applying machine learning methods 

    Casanovas Massana, Arnau; Gómez Doñate, Marta; Sánchez, David; Belanche Muñoz, Luis Antonio; Muniesa, Maite; Blanch, Anicet R. (2015-03-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study we use a machine learning software (Ichnaea) to generate predictive models for water samples with different concentrations of fecal contamination (point source, moderate and low). We applied several MST methods ...
  • The placement of the head that minimizes online memory: a complex systems approach 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (2015-03-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    It is well known that the length of a syntactic dependency determines its online memory cost. Thus, the problem of the placement of a head and its dependents (complements or modifiers) that minimizes online memory is ...
  • Reply to the commentary "Be careful when assuming the obvious", by P. Alday 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (2015-03-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Here we respond to some comments by Alday concerning headedness in linguistic theory and the validity of the assumptions of a mathematical model for word order. For brevity, we focus only on two assumptions: the unit of ...
  • The ordering principle in a fragment of approximate counting 

    Atserias Peri, Albert; Thapen, Neil (2014)
    Article
    Open Access
    The ordering principle states that every finite linear order has a least element. We show that, in the relativized setting, the surjective weak pigeonhole principle for polynomial time functions does not prove a Herbrandized ...
  • The risks of mixing dependency lengths from sequences of different length 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon; Liu, Haitao (2014-11-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Mixing dependency lengths from sequences of different length is a common practice in language research. However, the empirical distribution of dependency lengths of sentences of the same length differs from that of sentences ...

  • Process discovery algorithms using numerical abstract domains 

    Carmona Vargas, Josep; Cortadella Fortuny, Jordi (2014-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The discovery of process models from event logs has emerged as one of the crucial problems for enabling the continuous support in the life-cycle of an information system. However, in a decade of process discovery research, ...
  • A categorial type logic 

    Morrill, Glyn (2014)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In logical categorial grammar [23,11] syntactic structures are categorial proofs and semantic structures are intuitionistic proofs, and the syntax-semantics interface comprises a homomorphism from syntactic proofs to ...
