  • Development of a cardiac model for the study of sudden cardiac death in infants 

    Alonso García-Cabezón, Mateo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-09-15)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    The Sudden Unexpected Death of an Infant (SUDI) is the unforeseen death of a newborn less than 12 months old. A mutation was discovered in a number of cases of SUDI that affects the protein troponin (Tn) present in ...
  • Restricted Boltzmann Machine learning through RAPID equations 

    Garí Galíndez, Jon (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-09-10)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This work consists on the theoretical study of Restricted Bolzmann Machines, neural networks that can learn the empirical distribution of different datasets. Particularly, we have studied RAPID, an alternative model that ...
  • Study of the evolution of new variants during an epidemic 

    Rifà Rovira, Eva (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-09)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    The coronavirus global pandemic, first identified in December 2019 caused by SARS-CoV-2 is one of the deadliest pandemics in history. Throughout the pandemic the virus has evolvedin the form of new variants. During the ...
  • Rheological studies in micro-fluids with oscillation flow 

    Benavent Claró, Andreu (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-09)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Front micro-rheology is a new method for analyzing fluid samples and obtaining their viscous behavior. This technique stands out from other rheometers because of its small size, the ability to measure very small samples ...
  • Optical properties of BaTiO3: determination of the absorption coefficient and its correlation with the material photo-response 

    Pamies Puig, Paula (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-11-26)
    Master thesis

    Obtaining a successful nuclear fusion reaction is a really hard task. One of the factors that we must consider is the high temperatures that the blanket that wraps up the plasma can achieve. Due to this issue, the metals ...
  • Disorder and localization in ultracold quantum gases 

    Olivella Eritja, Laura Laia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-10-22)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this work we study Anderson localization of quantum states in different kind of disordered media. First we apply the recently-developed theory of \textit{landscape localization} pioneered by Filoche and Mayboroda, giving ...
  • Biochemical model for the amoeboid motion of Dictyostelium discoideum cells 

    Gutu, Nica Nicoleta (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-09-07)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Chemotaxis can be understood as the directed cell migration towards a nonisotropic chemoattractant gradient present in the surrounding environment. This response to external chemical stimuli is employed by eukaryotic cells ...
  • Automatic detection of endangered species in video and satellite images using deep learning 

    Martín Pinardel, Rubén (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-09-08)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    In the context of the current global biodiversity crisis, several whales and cetacean species are among the most endangered animals on Earth due to past extensive whaling and to the current impact of human activities. This ...

    Epitaxial complex oxides are of great interest for their rich chemical and physical properties, and their functionalities in a wide variety of technology areas. Among them, epitaxial ferroelectric BiFeO_3 has demonstrated ...
  • Study of the turbulence with the hydrocode SPHYNX and its astrophysical applications 

    Celma Querol, Carlos (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-11)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this work we analyse the features of the compressible subsonic turbulence which is produced in a controlled small volume. The goal is twofold. First, implementing a turbulent routine in the hydrodynamic code which is ...
  • Numerical analysis of a spherical sensing structure for 3d heat flow & wind sensing 

    Atalay, Uygar (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-11)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    This thesis presents a series of numerical analysis of a novel spherical sensing structure for 3D heat flow and wind sensing. Unique spherical structure of the sensor made it possible to use it both for aboveground and ...
