  • A Method for the Complete Set of Solutions of the Finite-Position Synthesis Problem 

    Pérez Gracia, Alba (Springer, 2022)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The equations that appear in the formulation of finite-position synthesis problems tend to increase their complexity and become quite large when solving for multiple-joint systems. In this work, we create a new set of ...
  • A novel method for integrated multicriteria decision-making with uncertainty: A case study on sustainable agriculture in Colombia 

    Juanpera Gallel, Marc; Ferrer Martí, Laia; Garfi, Marianna; Domenech Léga, Bruno; Pastor Moreno, Rafael (IntechOpen, 2022-09-08)
    Part of book or chapter of book
