Abstract. The ubiquity of modular structure in real-world complex networks is being the focus of attention in many trials to understand the interplay between network topology and functionality. The best approaches to the identification of modular structure are based on the optimization of a quality function known as modularity. However this optimization is(More)
The purpose of this study was to validate the Behavioural Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire in the Spanish context, including items to measure integrated regulation. Participants were 524 exercisers, mean age 29.59 years. The results revealed acceptable fit indices in the confirmatory factor analysis and good internal consistency (with a Cronbach alpha(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe an intelligent system for the problem of real time road traffic control. The purpose of the system is to help traffic engineers in the selection of the state of traffic control devices on real time, using data recorded by traffic detectors on motorways. The system follows an advanced knowledge-based approach that(More)
A family of Pd(II)/Pt(II) dinuclear receptors, designed to give a smooth increase in their cavity lengths (from 7.46-13.78 Å), is presented. Their inclusion complexes with a representative set of polycyclic aromatic substrates (naphthalene, carbazol, pyrene, and benzo[a]pyrene), were characterized and studied in aqueous solution and the solid state. By(More)
Ruthenium-based drugs exhibit interesting properties as potential anticancer pharmaceuticals. We herein present the synthesis and characterization of a new family of ruthenium complexes with formulas [{Ru(bipy)2}2(μ-L)][CF3SO3]4 (L = bptz, 1a) and [{Ru(bipy)2}2(μ-L)][CF3SO3]2 (L = arphos, 2a; dppb, 3a; dppf, 4a), which were synthesized from the Ru(II)(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of a wireless monitoring and actuation network for residential and commercial buildings, which was work carried out as part of the Artemisia funded project ME3Gas . The aim of this deployment is to demonstrate that low cost wireless sensor networks can be used in situations where a full building management(More)
The potential of 15-crown-5 ethers to link large cations, such as potassium, is limited by the quasi-parallel arrangement of two oxygen donor moieties upon appropriate orientation of the corresponding ether-ring-containing molecules. Substrates bearing the two crown ethers that are capable of achieving such coordination are hitherto unknown. The synthesis(More)
In large-scale open environments mechanisms for locating appropriate services have to deal with the additional problem of semantic mismatches among the components. Semantic alignment mechanisms need to be purposefully integrated into a service discovery framework in order to fully exploit its potential. The objective of this paper is to present an ongoing(More)
