A novel model-order reduction technique for the solution of the fine-scale equilibrium problem appearing in computational homogenization is presented. The reduced set of empirical shape functions is obtained using a partitioned version —that accounts for the elastic/inelastic character of the solution— of the Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD).

BACKGROUND Reported urban malaria cases are increasing in Latin America, however, evidence of such trend remains insufficient. Here, we propose an integrated approach that allows characterizing malaria transmission at the rural-to-urban interface by combining epidemiological, entomological, and parasite genotyping methods.

More evidence is needed that links the diagnosis of different congenital heart diseases (CHD) identified after birth, with intermediate altitudes above sea level in geographically and ethnically diverse populations. Our aim was to estimate relative frequencies of CHD diagnosis by altitude and gender in the pediatric population of 12 cities in Colombia. This(More)
