Comparative study of pheromone control heuristics in ACO algorithms for solving RCPSP problems
(Applied Soft Computing, 201711)Constraint Satisfaction Problems (CSP) belong to a kind of traditional NPhard problems with a high impact on both research and industrial domains. The goal of these problems is to find a feasible assignment for a group ... 
Comparison of betabinomial regression model approaches to analyze health related quality of life data
(Statistical Methods in Medical Research, 20170105)Health related quality of life (HRQoL) has become an increasingly important indicator of health status in clinical trials and epidemiological research. Moreover, the study of the relationship of HRQoL with patients' and ... 
Comparison of two discrimination indexes in the categorisation of continuous predictors in timetoevent studies
(SORT (Statistics and Operations Research Transactions), 201704)The Cox proportional hazards model is the most widely used survival prediction model for analysing timetoevent data. To measure the discrimination ability of a survival model the concordance probability index is widely ... 
Competition yields efficiency in load balancing games
(Performance Evaluation, 20111231)We study a nonatomic congestion game with N parallel links, with each link under the control of a profit maximizing provider. Within this 'load balancing game', each provider has the freedom to set a price, or toll, for ... 
Congestion control of TCP flows in Internet routers by means of index policy
(Computer Networks, 20131231)In this paper we address the problem of fast and fair transmission of flows in a router, which is a fundamental issue in networks like the Internet. We model the interaction between a source using the Transmission Control ... 
Convergence of trajectories and optimal buffer sizing for AIMD congestion control
(Performance Evaluation, 20101231)We study the interaction between the AIMD (Additive Increase Multiplicative Decrease) multisocket congestion control and a bottleneck router with Drop Tail buffer. We consider the problem in the framework of deterministic ... 
Convergence of trajectories and optimal buffer sizing for MIMD congestion control
(Computer Communications, 20101231)We study the interaction between the MIMD (Multiplicative Increase Multiplicative Decrease) congestion control and a bottleneck router with Drop Tail buffer. We consider the problem in the framework of deterministic hybrid ... 
Correcting for spatial heterogeneity in plant breeding experiments with Psplines
(Spatial Statistics, 20171027)An important aim of the analysis of agricultural field experiments is to obtain good predictions for genotypic performance, by correcting for spatial effects. In practice these corrections turn out to be complicated, since ... 
Costefficient deployment of multihop wireless networks over disaster areas using multiobjective metaheuristics
(Neurocomputing, 201707)Nowadays there is a global concern with the growing frequency and magnitude of natural disasters, many of them associated with climate change at a global scale. When tackled during a stringent economic era, the allocation ... 
Crowd Learning with Candidate Labeling: an EMbased Solution
(Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence, 20180927)Crowdsourcing is widely used nowadays in machine learning for data labeling. Although in the traditional case annotators are asked to provide a single label for each instance, novel approaches allow annotators, in case ... 
Decentralized proportional load balancing
(SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, 20160101)Load balancing is a powerful technique commonly used in communication and computer networks to improve system performance, robustness and fairness. In this paper, we consider a general model capturing the performance of ... 
Detection of nontechnical losses in smart meter data based on load curve profiling and time series analysis
(Energy, 201706)The advent and progressive deployment of the socalled Smart Grid has unleashed a profitable portfolio of new possibilities for an efficient management of the lowvoltage distribution network supported by the introduction ... 
Detection of Sand Dunes on Mars Using a Regular Vinebased Classification Approach
(Knowledge Based Systems, 201808)This paper deals with the problem of detecting sand dunes from remotely sensed images of the surface of Mars. We build on previous approaches that propose methods to extract informative features for the classification of ... 
Dicentric dose estimates for patients undergoing radiotherapy in the RTGene study to assess blood dosimetric models and the new Bayesian method for gradient exposure
(20180601)The RTGene study was focused on the development and validation of new transcriptional biomarkers for prediction of individual radiotherapy (RT) patient responses to ionising radiation (IR). In parallel, for validation ... 
Distancebased exponential probability models on constrained combinatorial optimization problems
(GECCO 2018 Companion  Proceedings of the 2018 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference Companion, 20180830)Estimation of distribution algorithms have already demonstrated their utility when solving a broad range of combinatorial problems. However, there is still room for methodological improvements when approaching constrained ... 
Early classification of time series by simultaneously optimizing the accuracy and earliness
(IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, 201710)The problem of early classi cation of time series appears naturally in contexts where the data, of temporal nature, is collected over time, and early class predictions are interesting or even required. The objective is to ... 
Effect of trampling and digging from shell shing on Zostera noltei (Zosteraceae) intertidal seagrass beds
(Scientia Marina, 201703)Seagrass beds are among the most valuable ecosystems in the world but they are also among the ones most affected by human activities, and they have decreased significantly in recent decades. In many areas, such as in the ... 
Effect of various dietary regimens on oral challenge with Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis in a rabbit model
(Research in Veterinary Science, 20151231)Rabbits are susceptible to infection by Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) in both wildlife and experimental conditions. Under the hypotheses that nutrient balance might influence the establishment of ...
