    • Arcs, linear sets and hermitian curves in the finite projective plane 

      Jofre Senciales, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The main object of the study of this thesis are arcs in PG(2,q2). An arc in PG(2,q2) is set of points with the property that every line intersects with the arc in at most 2 points. One can prove that an arc in PG(2,q2) has ...
    • Optimizing generalized kernels of polygons 

      Martínez Moraian, Alejandra; Orden Martin, David; Palios, Leonidas; Seara Ojea, Carlos; Zylinski, Pawel (Springer Nature, 2021-04-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      Let O be a set of k orientations in the plane, and let P be a simple polygon in the plane. Given two points p, q inside P, we say that p O-sees q if there is an O-staircase contained in P that connects p and q. The O-Kernel ...
    • Space-time NURBS-enhanced finite elements for free-surface flows in 2D 

      Stavrev, A.; Knechtges, P.; Elgeti, S.; Huerta, Antonio (2016-10-07)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The accuracy of numerical simulations of free-surface flows depends strongly on the computation of geometric quantities like normal vectors and curvatures. This geometrical information is additional to the actual degrees ...
    • The geometry of quantum stabiliser codes 

      Centelles Tarrés, Aina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-05)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The aim of this project is to bring together quantum error-correcting codes theory and the study of finite geometries. A quantum code is used to protect quantum information from errors that may occur due to quantum ...
