    • Implementation of a random forest machine learning algorithm in the context of Gaia space mission 

      Cantero Mitjans, Carles (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-02-14)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Gaia space astrometry mission will scan about one billion stars an average of 70 times each over five years. During the mission time repeated astrometric, photometric and spectroscopic observations of the entire sky down ...
    • Model Rocket Workshop 

      Far, Marc; Hernández, Alberto; Martínez, Joan; Pascual, Núria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-06-01)
      Coursework
      Open Access
      In this article will be explained the construction and launch of a model rocket, from the simulations to the workshop, with the materials used and the flight tests passed. Includes both simulated and experimental graphics ...
    • Monte Carlo simulations of the population of single and binary white dwarfs of our galaxy 

      Camacho Díaz, Judit (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06-19)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Since white dwarfs are the final stage of the evolution of the vast majority of stars, they carry important information about the chemical evolution of our Galaxy, its star formation rate, and its structure and dynamics. ...
    • Optimización de un perfil alar mediante el uso de algoritmos genéticos 

      Costal Acosta, Sergi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-07-19)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      El estudio de los perfiles alares ha sido siempre un frente importante de investigación en el ámbito aeronáutico. Un conocimiento profundo de estos permite hacer diseños cada vez más eficientes. En las últimas décadas, ...
    • Oxygen-Neon rich merger scenario of a white dwarf with a stellar giant core during the common envelope 

      Canals Canals, Pere (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-07)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Israel Institute of Technology
      We conduct a population synthesis study concentrating on its binary systems, studying the outcomes of the common envelope evolution involving a white dwarf and an asymptotic giant branch star. We argue that the merger ...
    • Population synthesis studies of the white dwarfs of the galactic disk and halo 

      Cojocaru, Elena Ruxandra (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-11-24)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      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 ...
    • Potential flow of perfect fluids on complex surfaces 

      Martín Muñoz, Alba (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-07-11)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      This document studies the behavior of perfect fluids when passing around different surfaces that have been historically used for the design of wing profiles. In addition to that, some fluid potentials are represented over ...
    • Practical implementation of a continuous-variable quantum key distribution system 

      Hernández Aguirre, Leiza (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06-26)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Covenantee:   Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO)
      Quantum key distribution with continuous variables (CV-QKD) enables two parties to share a secret key by using coherent states of light and homodyne detection. This can be carried out by employing low-cost and mature ...
