$\mathbf{SO(10)}\times \mathbf{S_4} $ Grand Unified Theory of Flavour and LeptogenesisOct 09 2017Dec 21 2017We propose a Grand Unified Theory of Flavour, based on $SO(10)$ together with a non-Abelian discrete group $S_4$, under which the unified three quark and lepton 16-plets are unified into a single triplet $3'$. The model involves a further discrete group ... More

Factorization approach to superintegrable systems: Formalism and applicationsDec 21 2015Feb 29 2016The factorization technique for superintegrable Hamiltonian systems is revisited and applied in order to obtain additional (higher-order) constants of the motion. In particular, the factorization approach to the classical anisotropic oscillator on the ... More

Beta seasonal autoregressive moving average modelsJun 20 2018In this paper we introduce the class of beta seasonal autoregressive moving average ($\beta$SARMA) models for modeling and forecasting time series data that assume values in the standard unit interval. It generalizes the class of beta autoregressive moving ... More

Slow Limb Movements Require Precise Control of Muscle StiffnessMay 02 2015May 05 2015Slow and accurate finger and limb movements are essential to daily activities, but their neural control and governing mechanics are relatively unexplored. We consider neuromechanical systems where slow movements are produced by neural commands that modulate ... More

Asymptotic normality of the optimal solution in multiresponse surface methodologyJul 18 2012In this work is obtained an explicit form for the perturbation effect on the matrix of regression coefficients on the optimal solution in multiresponse surface methodology. Then, the sensitivity analysis of the optimal solution is studied and the critical ... More

A Note on the Ladyzenskaja-Babuska-Brezzi ConditionMar 08 2012The analysis of finite-element-like Galerkin discretization techniques for the stationary Stokes problem relies on the so-called LBB condition. In this work we discuss equivalent formulations of the LBB condition.

Estimation of mean form and mean form difference under elliptical lawsJul 13 2015Some ideas studied by Lele (1993), under a Gaussian perturbation model, are generalised in the setting of matrix multivariate elliptical distributions. In particular, several inaccuracies in the published statistical perturbation model are revised. In ... More

Evidence for a 304-day Orbital Period for GX 1+4Dec 27 1999In this paper we report strong evidence for a ~304-day periodicity in the spin history of the accretion-powered pulsar GX 1+4 that is very likely to be a signature of the orbital period of the system. Using BATSE public-domain data, we show a highly-significant ... More

An integrable Henon-Heiles system on the sphere and the hyperbolic planeNov 07 2014Aug 29 2015We construct a constant curvature analogue on the two-dimensional sphere ${\mathbf S}^2$ and the hyperbolic space ${\mathbf H}^2$ of the integrable H\'enon-Heiles Hamiltonian $\mathcal{H}$ given by $$ \mathcal{H}=\dfrac{1}{2}(p_{1}^{2}+p_{2}^{2})+ \Omega ...
