A fullymixed finite element method for the coupling of the Navier–Stokes and Darcy–Forchheimer equations
(202105)In this work we present and analyze a fullymixed formulation for the nonlinear model given by the coupling of the Navier–Stokes and Darcy–Forchheimer equations with the Beavers–Joseph–Saffman condition on the interface. ... 
A generalized action for(2 + 1)dimensional Chern–Simons gravity
(2012)We show that the socalled semisimple extended Poincar ́e (SSEP) algebra inDdimensions canbe obtained from the antide Sitter algebraso(D−1,2) by means of theSexpansion procedurewith an appropriate semigroupS. A general ... 
A graph approach for the construction of high order divergencefree Raviart–Thomas finite elements
(201812)We propose and analyze an efficient algorithm for the computation of a basis of the space of divergencefree Raviart–Thomas finite elements. The algorithm is based on graph techniques. The key point is to realize that, ... 
A healthy eating score is inversely associated with depression in older adults: results from the Chilean National Health Survey 2016–2017
(2022)Objective: To investigate the relationship of a healthy eating score with depression in Chilean older adults. Design: Crosssectional study. Setting: Older adults from the Chilean National Health Survey 2016–2017. Associations ... 
A hot terrestrial planet orbiting the bright M dwarf L 1689 unveiled by TESS
(202004)We report the detection of a transiting superEarthsized planet (R = 1.39 ± 0.09 R⊕) in a 1.4day orbit around L 1689 (TOI134), a bright M1V dwarf (V = 11, K = 7.1) located at 25.15 ± 0.02 pc. The host star was observed ... 
A hybrid deterministic and stochastic approach for tsunami hazard assessment in Iquique, Chile
(202001)The southern Peru and northern Chile coastal region is an active subduction zone that contains one of the most signifcant seismic gaps in the eastern Pacifc basin (~17°S–~24°S). Although the gap was partially flled by the ... 
A methodological approach to improve the performance in operating room management
(20200304)This research seeks to improve the service quality provided in Operating Rooms through a Key Performance Indicators (KPI) system based on the analysis of processes and resources used in three surgical units in Chile. This ... 
A mixed method for the biharmonic problem based on a system of firstorder equations.
(2011)We introduce a new mixed method for the biharmonic problem. The method is based on a formulation where the biharmonic problem is rewritten as a system of four firstorder equations. A hybrid form of the method is introduced ... 
A modular multilevel series/parallel converter for a wide frequency range operation
(201910)When providing ac output, modular multilevel converters (MMCs) experience power fluctuation in the phase arms. The power fluctuation causes voltage ripple on the module capacitors, which grows with the output power and ... 
A multicenter study evaluating the stages of change in food consumption with warning labels among Chilean university students
(20200116)Objective. To analyze the stage of change in food consumption with warning labels among Chilean university students. Materials and Methods. Crosssectional study which applied surveys in universities from all over the ... 
A multicentre study of psychological variables and the prevalence of burnout among primary health care nurses
(20190904)Nurses in primary health care (PHC) have multiple responsibilities but must often work with limited resources. The study’s aim was to estimate burnout levels among PHC nurses. A Quantitative, observational, crosssectional, ... 
A multicriteria hierarchical approach for portfolio selection in a stock exchange
(2021)The objective of the paper is to present a multiple criteria hierarchical process (MCHP) approach for portfolio selection in a stock exchange. One of the problems that investors usually face is which stock should be included ... 
A new family of Mixed Methods for the ReissnerMindlin Plate Model based on a System of firstorder equations
(2011)The mixed method for the biharmonic problem introduced in [12] is extended to the ReissnerMindlin plate model. The ReissnerMindlin problem is written as a system of first order equations and all the resulting variables ... 
A new measure of volatility using induced heavy moving averages
(2019)The volatility is a dispersion technique widely used in statistics and economics. This paper presents a new way to calculate volatility by using different extensions of the ordered weighted average (OWA) operator. This ... 
A new species of Proctoeces and reinstatement of Proctoeces humboldti GeorgeNascimento and Quiroga 1983 (Digenea: Fellodistomidae) based on molecular and morphological evidence
(201804)The most studied digenean of marine organisms in Chile is by far Proctoeces humboldti, a parasite of the intestine of the clingfish Sicyases sanguineus and gonad of the keyhole limpet Fissurella spp. (progenetic metacercariae). ... 
A novel approach to the creation of a labelling lexicon for improving emotion analysis in text
(2021)Purpose – This paper aims to describe the process used to create an emotion lexicon enriched with the emotional intensity of words and focuses on improving the emotion analysis process in texts. Design/methodology/approach ... 
A Pair of TESS Planets Spanning the Radius Valley around the Nearby MidM Dwarf LTT 3780
(202007)We present the confirmation of two new planets transiting the nearby midM dwarf LTT 3780 (TIC 36724087, TOI732, V = 13.07, Ks = 8.204, Rs = 0.374 R⊙, Ms = 0.401 M⊙, d = 22 pc). The two planet candidates are identified ...
