      Ayesta U.; Jacko P.; Novak V. (Proceedings - IEEE INFOCOM, 2011-12-31)
      We analyze a comprehensive model for multi-class job scheduling accounting for user abandonment, with the objective of minimizing the total discounted or time-average sum of linear holding costs and abandonment penalties. ...

      Valero-Lara P.; Jansson J. (Procedia Computer Science, 2015-12-31)
      We propose a numerical approach based on the Lattice-Boltzmann method (LBM) for dealing with mesh refinement of Non-uniform Staggered Cartesian Grid. We explain, in detail, the strategy for mapping LBM over such geometries. ...

      The present paper is the continuation of the recent work [7], and it is devoted to strictly hyperbolic operators with non-regular coefficients. We focus here on the case of complete operators whose second-order coefficients ...

      We present an augmented dual-mixed variational formulation for a linear convection-diffusion equation with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions. The approach is based on the addition of suitable least squares type ...

      Barrios T.P.; Cascón J.M.; Gonzalez M. (Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, 2015-12-31)
      We develop an a posteriori error analysis of residual type of a stabilized mixed finite element method for Darcy flow. The stabilized formulation is obtained by adding to the standard dual-mixed approach suitable residual ...
    • A posteriori error control for fully discrete crank-nicolson schemes 

      B̈ansch E.; Karakatsani F.; Makridakis Ch. (SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, 2012-12-31)
      We derive residual-based a posteriori error estimates of optimal order for fully discrete approximations for linear parabolic problems. The time discretization uses the Crank- Nicolson method, and the space discretization ...
    • A quantitative boundary unique continuation for stochastic parabolic equations 

      Li H.; Lü Q. (Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, 2013-12-31)
      This paper is addressed to the boundary unique continuation property for forward stochastic parabolic equations, that is, to determine the value of the solution by virtue of the observation on an arbitrary open subset of ...
    • A regularity property for Schrödinger equations on bounded domains 

      Puel J.-P. (Revista Matematica Complutense, 2013-12-31)
      We give a regularity result for the free Schrödinger equations set in a bounded domain of ℝ N which extends the 1-dimensional result proved in Beauchard and Laurent (J. Math. Pures Appl. 94(5):520-554, 2010) with different ...
    • A renewal model for the emergence of anomalous solute crowding in liposomes 

      Paradisi P.; Allegrini P.; Chiarugi D. (BMC Systems Biology, 2015-12-31)
      A fundamental evolutionary step in the onset of living cells is thought to be the spontaneous formation of lipid vesicles (liposomes) in the pre-biotic mixture. Even though it is well known that hydrophobic forces drive ...
    • A result concerning the global approximate controllability of the Navier-Stokes system in dimension 3 

      Guerrero S.; Imanuvilov O.Y.; Puel J.-P. (Journal des Mathematiques Pures et Appliquees, 2012-12-31)
      In this paper we deal with the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes system, posed in a cube. In this context, we prove a result concerning its global approximate controllability by means of boundary controls which act in some ...
    • A Secondary Field Based hp-Finite Element Method for the Simulation of Magnetotelluric Measurements 

      Alvarez-Aramberri J.; Pardo D.; Barucq E. (Journal of Computational Science, 2015-12-31)
      In some geophysical problems, it is sometimes possible to divide the subsurface resistivity distribution as a one dimensional (1D) contribution plus some two dimensional (2D) inhomogeneities. Assuming this scenario, we ...
    • A splitting method for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation 

      Ignat L.I. (Journal of Differential Equations, 2011-12-31)
      We introduce a splitting method for the semilinear Schrödinger equation and prove its convergence for those nonlinearities which can be handled by the classical well-posedness L2(Rd)-theory. More precisely, we prove that ...
