The purposes of the present study were to determine muscle strength and power output characteristics in a group of professional soccer players and to identify their relationships with 2 functional performance tests (vertical jumping height and 15-m sprint time). Maximal strength and power indices attained against different loads in barbell back squat(More)
Twitch potentiation in knee extensor (KE) muscles after a 7-s conditioning isometric maximal voluntary contraction (MVC trial), submaximal (25% MVC) voluntary contraction (SVC trial) and submaximal tetanic contraction (25% MVC) induced by percutaneous electrical stimulation at 100 Hz (PES trial) was compared in 12 men aged 19-25 years. Isometric twitch(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiple sclerosis is a chronic neurological inflammatory demyelinating disease. Specialists involved in the symptomatic treatment of this disease tend to apply heterogeneous diagnostic and treatment criteria. AIM To establish homogeneous criteria for treating spasticity based on available scientific knowledge, facilitating decision-making in(More)
In this paper an efficient parallel implementation of the Lanczos method for matrix tridlagonalization is described. This work is restricted to sparse matrices where the work load unbalance problem must be solved in order to optimize the efficiency of the parallel implementation. A new strategy for data dktribution (called Pivoting Block) is purposed in(More)
uego is a general clustering technique capable of accelerating and/or parallelizing existing search methods. uego is an abstraction of gas, a genetic algorithm (ga) with subpopulation support, so the niching (i.e. clustering) technique of gas can be applied along with any kind of optimizers, not only genetic algorithm. The aim of this paper is to analyze(More)
