    • Brisaboa, Nieves R.; Ladra, Susana; Navarro, Gonzalo (2013)
      We present a new variable-length encoding scheme for sequences of integers, Directly Addressable Codes (DACs), which enables direct access to any element of the encoded sequence without the need of any sampling method. ...
    • Seguel, F.; Meruane Naranjo, Viviana (Academic Press, 2018)
      Different studies have demonstrated that vibration characteristics are sensitive to debonding in composite structures. Nevertheless, one of the main restrictions of vibration measurements is the number of degrees of ...
    • Fernández, José; Pastén, César; Ruiz Tapia, Sergio; Leyton, Felipe (Springer Netherlands, 2019)
      © 2018, Springer Nature B.V.Destructive megathrust earthquakes, such as the 2015 Mw 8.3 Illapel event, frequently affect Chile. In this study, we assess the damage of the 2015 Illapel Earthquake in the Coquimbo Region ...
    • Massone Sánchez, Leonardo; Cáceres, Iván (Elsevier, 2020)
      The 2010 Chile earthquake of magnitude Mw 8.8 showed the importance of using correct detailing at the wall boundary. Most design methodologies for wall boundary special detailing have been compared to testing, but at the ...
    • Mills, D. L.; Arias, Rodrigo (ELSEVIER, 2006-10-01)
      The Landau-Lifschitz-Gilbert (LLG) equation is used widely in device design to describe spin motions in magnetic nanoscale structures. The damping term in this equation plays an essential role in the description of the ...

      In the Human Penguin Project (N = 1755), 15 research groups from 12 countries collected body temperature, demographic variables, social network indices, seven widely-used psychological scales and two newly developed ...
    • Bastias, Joaquín; Spikings, Richard; Rileyc, Teal; Ulianov, Alexey; Grunowe, Anne; Chiaradia, Massimo; Herve Allamand, Francisco Enrique (Elsevier, 2021)
      We present the results of U-Pb zircon dating conducted using laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), isotopic tracing analyses of Hf in zircon and Sr-Nd in whole-rock and whole-rock major ...
    • Sipiran, Ivan; Bustos Cárdenas, Benjamín; Schreck, Tobias (2013)
      In this paper, we present a new approach for generic 3D shape retrieval based on a mesh partitioning scheme. Our method combines a mesh global description and mesh partition descriptions to represent a 3D shape. The ...
    • Baloian Tataryan, Nelson; Pino Urtubia, José; Hoppe, H. Ulrich (IEEE COMPUTER SOC, 2008)
      This paper addresses issues of using computer technology to support in-classroom teaching and learning regarding one of the most frequent problems in such scenarios: the students' attention. First, it presents the distraction ...
    • Rebolledo Toro, Edgar (Universidad de Santiago de Chile. Facultad de Tecnología, 2016)
      In times of crisis like those currently going through, the reform of the Local Public Administration specifically with regard to the development of human resources is essential. Specifically one that has to do with qualified ...
    • Sepúlveda Valenzuela, Sergio; Moreiras, Stella M.; Lara, Marisol; Alfaro Soto, Alejandro (Springer, 2015)
      In January and February 2013, heavy rainfall during local summer storms triggered a large number of landslides in the Andes Main and Frontal ranges of central Chile and Argentina (32°–34° S). Most of the mass movements ...
    • Moreiras, Stella Maris; Sepúlveda Valenzuela, Sergio Andrés; Correas González, Mariana; Lauro, Carolina; Vergara, Iván; Jeanneret, Pilar; Junquera Torrado, Sebastián; Cuevas, Jaime G.; Maldonado, Antonio; Antinao Rojas, Jose Luis; Lara Castillo, Marisol del Pilar (MDPI, 2021)
      This review paper compiles research related to debris flows and hyperconcentrated flows in the central Andes (30 –33 S), updating the knowledge of these phenomena in this semiarid region. Continuous records of these ...
    • Martínez, María E. (IOP Publishing, 2020)
      We consider the long time asymptotics of (not necessarily small) odd solutions to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with semi-linear and nonlocal Hartree nonlinearities, in one dimension of space. We assume data in the ...
    • Leottau, David L.; Vatsyayan, Aashish; Ruiz del Solar, Javier; Babuška, Robert (Springer, 2017)
      In this paper, decentralized reinforcement learning is applied to a control problem with a multidimensional action space. We propose a decentralized reinforcement learning architecture for a mobile robot, where the individual ...
    • Leottau, David L.; Ruíz del Solar San Martín, Javier; Babuška, Robert (Elsevier, 2018)
      A multi-agent methodology is proposed for Decentralized Reinforcement Learning (DRL) of individual behaviors in problems where multi-dimensional action spaces are involved. When using this methodology, sub-tasks are learned ...
    • Cole, Richard; Correa Haeussler, José; Gkatzelis, Vasilis; Mirrokni, Vahab; Olver, Neil (Elsevier, 2015)
      Game Theory and Mechanism Design are by now standard tools for studying and designing massive decentralized systems. Unfortunately, designing mechanisms that induce socially efficient outcomes often requires full information ...
