An application of the Shapley value to the analysis of coexpression networks [Article]
(Springer Nature, 20180824)We study the problem of identifying relevant genes in a coexpression network using a (cooperative) game theoretic approach. The Shapley value of a cooperative game is used to asses the relevance of each gene in interaction ...

On finding widest empty curved corridors [Article]
(Elsevier, 2007)An αsiphon of width w is the locus of points in the plane that are at the same distance w from a 1corner polygonal chain C such that α is the interior angle of C. Given a set P of n points in the plane and a fixed angle ...

The class cover problem with boxes [Article]
(Elsevier, 2012)In this paper we study the following problem: Given sets R and B of r red and b blue points respectively in the plane, find a minimumcardinality set H of axisaligned rectangles (boxes) so that every point in B is covered ...

Fitting a twojoint orthogonal chain to a point set [Article]
(Elsevier, 2010)We study the problem of fitting a twojoint orthogonal polygonal chain to a set S of n points in the plane, where the objective function is to minimize the maximum orthogonal distance from S to the chain. We show that ...

Covering point sets with two disjoint disks or squares [Article]
(Elsevier, 2007)We study the following problem: Given a set of red points and a set of blue points on the plane, find two unit disks CR and CB with disjoint interiors such that the number of red points covered by CR plus the number of ...

Node aggregation for enhancing PageRank [Article]
(IEEEInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017)In this paper, we study the problem of node aggregation under different perspectives for increasing PageRank of some nodes of interest. PageRank is one of the parameters used by the search engine Google to determine the ...

Nonhyperbolic boundary equilibrium bifurcations in planar Filippov systems: a case study approach [Article]
(WorldScientific Open Access, 2008)Boundary equilibrium bifurcations in piecewise smooth discontinuous systems are characterized by the collision of an equi librium point with the discontinuity surface. Generically, these bi furcations are of codimension ...

On the existence and uniqueness of limit cycles in Liénard differential equations allowing discontinuities [Article]
(IOP Science, 2008)In this paper we study the nonexistence and the uniqueness of limit cycles for the Liénard differential equation of the form x'' − f(x)x' + g(x) = 0 where the functions f and g satisfy xf(x) > 0 and xg(x) > 0 for x ≠ 0 ...

Hopf bifurcation from infinity for planar control systems [Article]
(Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. Departamento de Matemáticas, 1997)Symmetric piecewise linear bidimensional systems are very common in control engineering. They constitute a class of nondifferentiable vector fields for which classical Hopf bifurcation theorems are not applicable. For ...

On the TakensBogdanov Bifurcation in the Chua’s Equation [Article]
(Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers, 1999)The analysis of the TakensBogdanov bifurcation of the equilibrium at the origin in the Chua’s equation with a cubic nonlinearity is carried out. The local analysis provides, in first approximation, different bifurcation ...

Canards, Folded Nodes, and MixedMode Oscillations in PiecewiseLinear SlowFast Systems [Article]
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2016)Canardinduced phenomena have been extensively studied in the last three decades, from both the mathematical and the application viewpoints. Canards in slowfast systems with (at least) two slow variables, especially ...

Stabilization of Galerkin Finite Element Approximations to Transient ConvectionDiffusion Problems [Article]
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2010)A postprocessing technique to improve Galerkin finite element approximations to linear evolutionary convectionreactiondiffusion equations is considered. A steady convectionreactiondiffusion problem with data based on ...

A Value for Games Restricted by Augmenting Systems [Article]
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2010)This paper deals with cooperative games in which only certain coalitions are allowed to form. There have been previous models developed to confront the problem of nonfeasible coalitions. Games restricted by a communication ...
