1. Cavalcante, Miquelina Rodrigues Castro. Avaliação da qualidade térmica de praças em Maceió Alagoas : três estudos de caso.

Degree: 2007, Universidade Federal de Alagoas

The aim of this work is to evaluate the thermal quality of urban squares in Maceió city, AL, Brazil, and its relationship with the use of those areas and the thermal sensation of the users. The adopted procedures were the bibliographic review and a field research. In the bibliografic review was set the theoretical reference: the squares´ characteristics, the urban climate and its relationship with human thermal confort. To charachterize those squares it was used the concept of Robba and Macedo´s SQUARE (2002). As a field research after an inventory of the squares in Maceió, AL these squares were chosen and analyzed: Ricardo Lessa´s square, in Tabuleiro dos Martins district; Tenente Madalena´s square, in Cruz das Almas district; and Muniz Falcão´s square, in Ponta Verde´s district. Climate variables were measured and questionnaires were applyed, and behaviour maps were built for January and February, 2006. As thermal confort index it was used the parameters proposed by Fanger (1970). It has been found that thermal quality in square areas is an important factor for their use, specially because they refer to leasure and relaxing areas. This study represents an effort to raise questions and should continue as an investigation object.

O presente trabalho tem como objetivo avaliar a qualidade térmica de praças na cidade de Maceió - AL e a sua relação com a utilização destes espaços e a sensação térmica dos usuários. Os procedimentos utilizados foram a pesquisa bibliográfica e documental e a pesquisa de campo. Na pesquisa bibliográfica e documental foi demarcado o referencial teórico: as características de praças, do clima urbano e a sua relação com o conforto térmico humano. Para caracterizar as praças foi usado o conceito de PRAÇA de Robba e Macedo (2002). Na pesquisa de campo, após a elaboração de um inventário das praças de Maceió-AL, foram escolhidas e analisadas as praças Ricardo Lessa, no Bairro Tabuleiro do Martins; Tenente Madalena, no Bairro Cruz das Almas; e Muniz Falcão, no Bairro Ponta Verde. Foram realizadas medições de variáveis climáticas, aplicados questionários e construídos mapas comportamentais nos meses de janeiro e fevereiro de 2006. Como Índice de Conforto Térmico foram utilizados os parâmetros estabelecidos por Fanger (1970). Ficou comprovado que a qualidade térmica dos espaços nas praças é um importante fator para a sua utilização, principalmente quando se trata de uma área destinada ao lazer e descanso. Em virtude dos limites e dificuldades, este estudo representa esforço de reflexão e um levantamento de questões que devem continuar sendo objeto de investigação.

2. Sharma, Rohit. Effect of multiuser interference on subscriber location in CDMA networks.

Degree: MSEE, Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2005, Louisiana State University

The last few years have witnessed an ever growing interest in the field of mobile location systems for cellular systems. The motivation is the series of regulations passed by Federal Communications Commission, requiring that wireless service providers support a mobile telephone callback feature and cell site location mechanism. A further application of the location technology is in the rapidly emerging field of intelligent transportation systems, which are intended to enhance highway safety, location based billing etc. Many of the existing location technologies use GPS and its derivatives which require a specialized subscriber equipment. This is not feasible for popular use, as the cost of such equipments is very high. Hence, for a CDMA network, various methods have been studied that use the cellular network as the sole means to locate the mobile station (MS), where the estimates are derived from the signal transmitted by the MS to a set of base station's (BS) This approach has the advantage of requiring no modifications to the subscriber equipment. While subscriber location has been previously studied for CDMA networks, the effect of multiple access interference has been ignored. In this thesis we investigate the problem of subscriber location in the presence of multiple access interference. Using MATLAB as a simulation tool, we have developed an extensive simulation technique which measures the error in location estimation for different network and user configurations. In our studies we include the effects of log-normal shadow and Rayleigh fading. We present results that illustrate the effects of varying shadowing losses, number of BS's involved in position location, early-late discriminator offset and cell sizes in conjunction with the varying number of users per cell on the accuracy of radiolocation estimation.

Subjects/Keywords: radiolocation; subscriber location; ToA estimation; position estimator; simulated annealing; Gaussian approximation; home base station; non-home base station; non-linear least squares; steepest descent; shadowing losses; time of arrival; intercellular interference; intracellular interference; Matlab; mathematical model MAI; multi user interference; MAI; CDMA; per user interference

3. Durán Alcaide, Ángel. Development of high-performance algorithms for a new generation of versatile molecular descriptors. The Pentacle software.

Degree: Departament de Ciències Experimentals i de la Salut, 2010, Universitat Pompeu Fabra

El trabajo que se presenta en esta tesis se ha centrado en el desarrollo de algoritmos de altas prestaciones para la obtención de una nueva generación de descriptores moleculares, con numerosas ventajas con respecto a sus predecesores, adecuados para diversas aplicaciones en el área del diseño de fármacos, y en su implementación en un programa científico de calidad comercial (Pentacle). Inicialmente se desarrolló un nuevo algoritmo de discretización de campos de interacción molecular (AMANDA) que permite extraer eficientemente las regiones de máximo interés. Este algoritmo fue incorporado en una nueva generación de descriptores moleculares independientes del alineamiento, denominados GRIND-2. La rapidez y eficiencia del nuevo algoritmo permitieron aplicar estos descriptores en cribados virtuales. Por último, se puso a punto un nuevo algoritmo de codificación independiente de alineamiento (CLACC) que permite obtener modelos cuantitativos de relación estructura-actividad con mejor capacidad predictiva y mucho más fáciles de interpretar que los obtenidos con otros métodos.
