  • Quantum chemistry and conformational sampling meet together : a powerful approach to study and design metalloprotein reactivity 

    Monza, Emanuele (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-12-19)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Metalloprotein are proteins containing metal ion cofactors. Compared to chemical catalysts, metalloproteins have a well-defined configuration around the active site which ensures higher specificity, selectivity and reaction ...
  • Dielectric spectroscopy studies of low-disorder and low-dimensional materials 

    Tripathi, Pragya (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-11-17)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    In this thesis we employ dielectric spectroscopy (in different implementations) to study the dielectric properties of different materials ranging from completely disordered supercooled liquids to low-disorder solids with ...
  • Stochastic and complex dynamics in mesoscopic brain networks 

    Malagarriga i Guasch, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-01-13)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    The aim of this thesis is to deepen into the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the generation of complex and stochastic dynamics, as well as emerging phenomena, in the human brain. We study typical features ...
  • High-order hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin method for viscous compressible flows 

    Javadzadeh Moghtader, Mostafa (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-11-04)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an essential tool for engineering design and analysis, especially in applications like aerospace, automotive and energy industries. Nowadays most commercial codes are based on Finite ...
  • Coupling and stochasticity in mesoscopic brain dynamics 

    Jedynak, Maciej (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-03-27)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    The brain is known to operate under the constant influence of noise arising from a variety of sources. It also organises its activity into rhythms spanning multiple frequency bands. These rhythms originate from neuronal ...
  • Population synthesis studies of the white dwarfs of the galactic disk and halo 

    Cojocaru, Elena-Ruxandra (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-11-24)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    As the evolutionary end-point of most main-sequence stars, white dwarfs can be used to infer important properties concerning the formation and evolution of the different Galactic stellar populations. Population synthesis ...
  • Local ordering and dynamics of plastic crystals 

    Henao Aristizábal, Andrés (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-09-23)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Many materials of scientific interest show a disordered phase, with their molecules presenting positional disorder, orientational disorder or both. Processes of interest to life also occur in these kind of phases as it is ...
  • Consolidation and assessment of a technique to provide fast and precise point positioning (Fast-PPP) 

    Rovira Garcia, Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-01-21)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    The research of this paper-based dissertation is focused on the Fast Precise Point Positioning (Fast-PPP) technique. The novelty relies on using an accurate ionosphere model, in combination with the standard precise satellite ...
  • Guest-molecule dynamics and conductivity effects in carbon-based molecular solids 

    Mitsari, Efstratia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07-28)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Disordered systems are abundant in everyday life and so their study is of importance from a scientific and a technological point of view. The most common non-crystalline solid phases are structural glasses (e.g. window ...
  • Computer simulation of an excess proton in aqueous systems 

    Tahat, Amani Naser (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-01)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    This thesis aims at studying the microscopic physical-chemical properties of an excess proton in aqueous systems. From bulk water environments to narrow hydrophobic channels constructed with a double-layered graphene slab, ...
