  • Does like seek like? The formation of working groups in a programming project 

    Sanou Gozalo, Eduard; Hernández Fernández, Antonio; Arias Vicente, Marta; Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (Omnia Publisher SL (OmniaScience), 2017-02)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In a course of the degree of computer science, the programming project has changed from individual to teamed work, tentatively in couples (pair programming). Students have full freedom to team up with minimum intervention ...
  • Scarcity of crossing dependencies: A direct outcome of a specific constraint? 

    Gómez Rodríguez, Carlos; Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017-12-04)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The structure of a sentence can be represented as a network where vertices are words and edges indicate syntactic dependencies. Interestingly, crossing syntactic dependencies have been observed to be infrequent in human ...
  • Are crossing dependencies really scarce? 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon; Gómez Rodríguez, Carlos; Esteban Ángeles, Juan Luis (2018-03-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The syntactic structure of a sentence can be modelled as a tree, where vertices correspond to words and edges indicate syntactic dependencies. It has been claimed recurrently that the number of edge crossings in real ...
  • Methods of class field theory to separate logics over finite residue classes and circuit complexity 

    Arratia Quesada, Argimiro Alejandro; Ortiz, Carlos E. (2017-02-27)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Separations among the first-order logic Res(0,+,×) of finite residue classes, its extensions with generalized quantifiers, and in the presence of a built-in order are shown in this article, using algebraic methods from ...
  • Characterization of the CPAP-treated patient population in Catalonia 

    Turino, Cecilia; Bertrán, Sandra; Gavaldà Mestre, Ricard; Teixidó, Ivan; Woehrle, Holger; Rué, Montserrat; Solsona, Francesc; Escarrabill, Joan; Colls, Cristina; García Altés, Anna; Batlle, Jordi de; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel; Barbé, Ferran (2017-09-21)
    Article
    Accés obert
    There are different phenotypes of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), many of which have not been characterised. Identification of these different phenotypes is important in defining prognosis and guiding the therapeutic ...
  • The placement of the head that maximizes predictability: An information theoretic approach 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (RAM-Verlag, 2017-01-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The minimization of the length of syntactic dependencies is a well-established principle of word order and the basis of a mathematical theory of word order. Here we complete that theory from the perspective of information ...
  • School research in Catalonia : between tradition and innovation 

    Nadal, Ivan; Hernández Fernández, Antonio; Luque, Frederic; Salán Ballesteros, Maria Núria (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The research-work (RW) is part of an official high school curriculum in Catalonia. The relevance of the proposal focuses on the fact that it complements the traditional tutoring project and is open to all educational levels ...
  • A commentary on “The now-or-never bottleneck: a fundamental constraint on language”, by Christiansen and Chater (2016) 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (RAM-Verlag, 2017-07-02)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In a recent article, Christiansen and Chater (2016) present a fundamental constraint on language, i.e. a now-or-never bottleneck that arises from our fleeting memory, and explore its implications, e.g., chunk-and-pass ...
  • A formal context for acyclic join dependencies 

    Baixeries i Juvillà, Jaume (2017)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Acyclic Join Dependencies (AJD) play a crucial role in database design and normalization. In this paper, we use Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) to characterize a set of AJDs that hold in a given dataset. This present work ...
  • The entropy of words-learnability and expressivity across more than 1000 languages 

    Bentz, Chris; Alikaniotis, Dimitrios; Cysouw, Michael; Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (2017-06-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The choice associated with words is a fundamental property of natural languages. It lies at the heart of quantitative linguistics, computational linguistics and language sciences more generally. Information theory gives ...
  • Disclosure day on relativity: a science activity beyond the classroom 

    Aragoneses, Andrés; Salán Ballesteros, Maria Núria; Hernández Fernández, Antonio (2017-04)
    Article
    Accés obert
    An important goal for students in engineering education is the ability to present and defend a project in front of a technical audience. We have designed an activity for helping students to work the independent learning ...
  • Random crossings in dependency trees 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon (2017-03-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    It has been hypothesized that the rather small number of crossings in real syntactic dependency trees is a side-effect of pressure for dependency length minimization. Here we answer a related ...
