    La implantación de los títulos de Grado y Postgrado propuestos en el EEES supone el rediseño de los planes de estudios de todas las universidades europeas. De la estrategia de desarrollo utilizada para su diseño dependerá ...
  • Co-occurrence patterns in diagnostic data 

    Piceno Cabrera, Marie Ely; Rodríguez Navas, Laura; Balcázar Navarro, José Luis (Wiley (John Wiley & Sons), 2020-04-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    We demonstrate how graph decomposition techniques can be employed for the visualization of hierarchical co-occurrence patterns between medical data items. Our research is based on Gaifman graphs (a mathematical concept ...
  • Closed-set-based discovery of representative association rules 

    Tîrnauca, Cristina; Balcázar Navarro, José Luis; Gómez Pérez, Domingo (2020)
    Article
    Open Access
    The output of an association rule miner is often huge in practice. This is why several concise lossless representations have been proposed, such as the “essential” or “representative” rules. A previously known algorithm ...
  • The frequency spectrum of finite samples from the intermittent silence process 

    Ferrer Cancho, Ramon; Gavaldà Mestre, Ricard (2009-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    It has been argued that the actual distribution of word frequencies could be reproduced or explained by generating a random sequence of letters and spaces according to the so-called intermittent silence process. The same ...
  • Portfolio optimization in incomplete markets and price constraints determined by maximum entropy in the mean 

    Arratia Quesada, Argimiro Alejandro; Gzyl, Henryk (2019-12-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    A solution to a portfolio optimization problem is always conditioned by constraints on the initial capital and the price of the available market assets. If a risk neutral measure is known, then the price of each asset is ...
