    The CitScale tool is a software platform for visualizing, analyzing and comparing the impacts of smart city policies based on innovative mobility concepts in urban areas. It places emphasis on new automotive vehicles aimed ...
  • Notes on using simulation-optimization techniques in traffic simulation 

    Ros, Xavier; Montero Mercadé, Lídia; Barceló Bugeda, Jaime (Elsevier, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Mathematical and simulation models of systems lay at the core of many decision support systems, and their role becomes more critical when the system is more complex. The decision process usually involves optimizing some ...

  • On using an improved Benders method for cell suppression 

    Baena, Daniel; Castro Pérez, Jordi; Frangioni, Antonio (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The cell suppression problem (CSP) is one of the most widely applied methods for tabular data protection. Given a set of primary cells to be protected, CSP aims at finding a set of secondary cells to be additionally removed ...
  • Demand aggregator flexibility forecast: price incentives sensitivity assessment 

    Kotsis, Grigorios; Moschos, Ioannis; Corchero García, Cristina; Cruz Zambrano, Miguel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This work seeks to determine the potentials of a Demand Aggregator into the Demand Response scheme. The authors describe and validate the optimization technique used by the Aggregator to enable demand flexibility in domestic ...
  • Dimensionality reduction for samples of bivariate density level sets: an application to electoral results 

    Delicado Useros, Pedro Francisco (Springer, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A bivariate densities can be represented as a density level set containing a fixed amount of probability (0.75, for instance). Then a functional dataset where the observations are bivariate density functions can be analyzed ...
  • Optimal level sets for representing a bivariate density function 

    Delicado Useros, Pedro Francisco; Vieu, Philippe (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We deal with the problem of representing a bivariate density function by level sets. The choice of which levels are used in this representation are commonly arbitrary (most usual choices being those with probability ...
  • Agent-based simulation of large population dynamics 

    Montañola Sales, Cristina; Casanovas Garcia, Josep; Cela Espín, José M.; Onggo, B.S.S.; Kaplan Marcusan, Adriana (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Agent-based modelling and simulation is a promising methodology that can be used in the study of population dynamics. One of the main obstacles hindering the use of agent-based simulation in practice is its scalability, ...
  • Parallel simulation of large population dynamics
