      Rodríguez-Álvarez M.X.; Durbán M.; Lee D.-J.; Eilers P.H.C.; Gonzalez, F (2016-12-30)
      Data analysed here derive from experiments conducted to study neurons' activity in the visual cortex of behaving monkeys. We consider a spatio-temporal adaptive penalized spline (P-spline) approach for modelling the firing ...
    • Spatio-temporal functional data analysis for wireless sensor networks data 

      Lee D.-J.; Zhu Z.; Toscas P. (Environmetrics, 2015-05-05)
      A new methodology is proposed for the analysis, modeling, and forecasting of data collected from a wireless sensor network. Our approach is considered in the framework of a functional data-analysis paradigm where observed ...
    • Spatiotemporal information coupling in network navigation 

      Mazuelas S.; Shen Y.; Win Z. (IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, 2018-12)
      Network navigation, encompassing both spatial and temporal cooperation to locate mobile agents, is a key enabler for numerous emerging location-based applications. In such cooperative networks, the positional information ...
    • Stability and asymptotic optimality of opportunistic schedulers in wireless systems 

      Ayesta U.; Erausquin M.; Jonckheere M.; Verloop I.M. (VALUETOOLS 2011 - 5th International ICST Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools, 2011-12-31)
      We investigate the scheduling of a common resource between several concurrent users when the feasible transmission rate of each user varies randomly over time. Time is slotted and users arrive and depart upon service ...
    • A statistical framework for radiation dose estimation with uncertainty quantification from the γ-H2AX assay
