This doctoral dissertation, entitled Illustration of Natural Science and Graphic Automatism as Paradigms of the Search for Objectivity and Subjectivity through Drawing. A Theoretical and Practical Study, is centered in the field of drawing and born from a series of insights arising from the artistic practice of the autor of the thesis. It is about and investigation that delves into how aspects of nature are represented, learned about, and comunicated through drawing. To do this, two seemingly opposite forms of drawing are juxtaposed: the automatic drawing, developed by the Surrealists in the second decade of the twentieth century (which is...

Different studies have demonstrated how at the end of the 12th century, in Jaca - in Camino de Santiago (thanks to a few jurisdictions) a regular city was created, which was then passed along the Santiago route to the rest of Aragon and the Aragonese Crown.
In this study, it can be seen that the regular medieval urbanism has also influenced our area and objectified in the colonised Valencian towns. Not only it is verified that these villas followed some guidelines in its planning, common patterns that reflected a model of medieval construction typified in a regular and orthogonal layout, but...

Knowledge of the key genes that affect the development of plants and their interaction with external agents is a very important aspect, both from a basic point of view and applied. Screening of mutagenized populations allows the identification of plants mutants and, from them, genes responsible for a particular character. Compared with other methodological alternatives (chemical or physical mutagens), insertional mutagenesis with T-DNA provides an additional advantage, the gene is tagged by an insert. Its identification is easier because it is possible to clone the mutated gene from the known T-DNA sequence.
In order to identify genes that control early developmental...

Increased life expectancy and the resulting aging population have led to a rise in population with one or more chronic diseases. This creates the need for a more targeted approach to the care and treatment of the chronic and pluripatological patients in the health system. On the economic front, an increasingly aging population and the growing morbidity, coupled with constant innovation in medical technology induce greater healthcare expenditure.
For these reasons, in the current backdrop of economic crisis and budgetary constraints as happens in Spain, it is essential to introduce management tools that help improve the efficiency of the health...

The current socio-economic and environmental context worldwide, with different actors and needs, requires continued progress towards energy efficiency and environmental improvements in order to create a sustainable future, and this implies a scientific and technologic effort to achieve the proposed goals.
Transport by propulsive systems based on reciprocating internal combustion engines (ICE) is one of the major agents affecting future environmental sustainability. Included in the wide research done in this area, one of the options considered is the use of low viscosity oils (LVO) as an option for increasing ICE efficiency. This technology presents a modest contribution to the efficiency target,...

Human activities have altered flow regimes resulting in increased pressures and threats on river biota. Physical habitat simulation has been established as a standard approach among the methods for Environmental Flow Assessment (EFA). Traditionally, in EFA, univariate habitat suitability curves have been used to evaluate the habitat suitability at the microhabitat scale whereas Generalized Additive Models (GAMs) and fuzzy logic are considered the most common multivariate approaches to do so. The assessment of the habitat suitability for three size classes of the West Balkan trout (Salmo farioides; Karaman,
1938) inferred with these multivariate approaches was compared at three different levels. First...

Alcoy has a population of 60.000 inhabitants and is located in Valencia, on the north of the province of Alicante. Alcoy has been provided with an urban public bus transport service since 50 years ago. As a result of the current economic downturn, the Municipality of the city applied to the Polytechnic University of Valencia for a study to restructuring the public transport service to allow less municipal subsidies, ensuring quality from two points of view - coverage and frequency. The aim of this study was to provide the government team of detailed information about public transport service of Alcoy...

Background and Objectives: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac ar- rhythmia and a growing healthcare burden worldwide. It is often asymptomatic and may appear as episodes of very short duration; hence, the development of methods for its au- tomatic detection is a challenging requirement to achieve early diagnosis and treatment strategies. The present work introduces a novel method exploiting the relative wavelet energy (RWE) to automatically detect AF episodes of a wide variety in length.
Methods: The proposed method analyzes the atrial activity of the surface electrocardio- gram (ECG), i.e., the TQ interval, thus being independent on...

[EN] Objective: To identify preoperative parameters of anatomo-electrical atrial remodelling in order to identify the subgroup of patients more favourable to long-term sinus rhythm (SR) re-establishment after concomitant ablation of persistent-permanent atrial fibrillation (AF).
Methods: The study included 50 consecutive patients undergoing concomitant surgical ablation of persistent-permanent AF with cryoablation and bipolar radiofrequency Maze IV pattern. The variables collected before the operation were: demographic variables, morbidity, AF evolution time, transthoracic echocardiographic study, and digital electrocardiogram register for f-wave signal organisation analysis (sample entropy [SampEn]). An assessment was also made of the individual and combined association of atrial remodelling parameters...

La mayoría de avances alcanzados relacionados con los métodos estandarizados para cuantificar la sostenibilidad de la construcción, están
fundamentalmente enfocados a la edificación más que a las infraestructuras, especialmente en su variante residencial. El impacto global de
la edificación residencial es el mayor de todos, pues implica a los tres ejes de la sostenibilidad: medioambiental (emisiones de gases de
efecto invernadero, derivados de los consumos de calefacción y/o refrigeración para lograr unas condiciones interiores confortables), social
(la vivienda es una primera necesidad para las personas) y económico (suele representar el mayor gasto que afronta una persona a lo largo
de su vida). Mientras tanto, la...

The importance of nourishment processes on the beaches of Mediterranean Sea has been increasing since the end of the 20th century due to its socio-economical awareness (tourismboost) and environmental implications (possible impact on Posidonia oceanica meadows and important processes of dredging and earth movements). However, in many cases, and especially in eastern Spain, relevant actions have been made which had caused that, after 20 years, the beaches in which these works were carried out will be in a similar situation with the original one.
The present study analyzed the Poniente Beach (Benidorm, Spain), a beach where the nourishment works of 1991...

A novel screen-printing fabrication method was used to prepare organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) based on poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) doped with polysterene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS). Initially, three types of these screen-printed OECTs with a different channel and gate areas ratio were compared in terms of output characteristics, transfer characteristics, and current modulation in a phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution. Results confirm that transistors with a gate electrode larger than the channel exhibit higher modulation. OECTs with this geometry were therefore chosen to investigate their ion-sensitive properties in aqueous solutions of cations of different sizes (sodium and rhodamine B). The effect of the gate electrode...

1, 1-bis (p-Chlorophenyl) -2, 2, 2-trichloroethane (DDT) has been used for control of malaria mosquitoes and other insect vectors of human diseases since 1945. Its use poses an environmental dilemma and efforts to replace it have been hampered by lack of information about its molecular target. This work identifies the 23 kDa band responsible for the DDT sensitivity in bees, as the OSCP and subunit "d" of the ATP synthase. The OSCP of the bee's ATP synthase contained 207 amino acids compared to 190 in bovine, which is insensitive to DDT, and the identities were only 47%. Subunit "d" of...

Cultivated and weedy clones of yellow nutsedge were analyzed using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers to assess the polymorphism within the species and determine if this approach was suitable for identification of cultivar and wild populations. The RAPD markers unambiguously identified all studied clones. Nei-Li similarities were computed and used in an unweighted pair group method using arithmetic average (UPGMA) cluster analyses. Cultivated and weedy clones were clustered in two groups, but two cultivated clones were more closely related to weedy clones than to cultivated clones. The results showed a high level of genetic variability among the clones tested,...

Purpose This study aims to develop a model with which to
build diets taking into account nutritional, climate change and
economic aspects. A case study is used to test the proposed
model, consisting of finding the optimal menus for school
children in Spain from combinations of 20 starters, 20 main
dishes and 7 desserts for a 20-day planning period.
Methods An optimizing technique, specifically integer goal
programming, is used as a means of designing diets which
take into account the aforementioned aspects. Goal programming
(GP) is used to design those menus that meet, or nearly
meet, all the requirements with respect to caloric content, caloric
share among macronutrients, nutrients to encourage...
