    Amil Marletti, Pablo; Almeira, Nahuel; Masoller Alonso, Cristina (Frontiers Media SA, 2019-11-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    Outlier detection in high-dimensional datasets is a fundamental and challenging problem across disciplines that has also practical implications, as removing outliers from the training set improves the performance of machine ...
  • Extreme-ultraviolet coherent pulse amplification in argon 

    Serrat Jurado, Carles; Seres, Jozsef; Seres, Enikoe; Namba, Shinichi (2019-06-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    The amplification of ultrashort extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) pulses in argon in high-order harmonic generation processes is studied by using the time-dependent Schrödinger equation in the spin-free one-active-electron and ...
