Do we agree on user interface aesthetics of Android apps?Dec 21 2018Context: Visual aesthetics is increasingly seen as an essential factor in perceived usability, interaction, and overall appraisal of user interfaces especially with respect to mobile applications. Yet, a question that remains is how to assess and to which ... More

Neutrino predictions from a left-right symmetric flavored extension of the standard modelNov 07 2018We propose a left-right symmetric electroweak extension of the Standard Model based on the $\Delta \left( 27\right)$ family symmetry. The masses of all electrically charged Standard Model fermions lighter than the top quark are induced by a Universal ... More

Evidence for resonant scattering of electrons by spin fluctuations in $LaNiO_3/LaAlO_3$ heterostructures grown by pulsed laser depositionAug 17 2015We present measurements of resistivity $\rho$ in highly oriented $LaNiO_3$ films grown on $LaAlO_3$ substrates by using a pulsed laser deposition technique. The experimental data are found to follow a universal $\rho (T) \propto T^{3/2}$ dependence for ... More

Near Infrared polarimetry of a sample of YSOsMar 24 2009Our goal is to study the physical properties of the circumstellar environment of young stellar objetcs (YSOs). In particular, the determination of the scattering mechanism can help to constrain the optical depth of the disk and/or envelope in the near ... More

Mapping stable direct and retrograde orbits around the triple system of asteroids (45) EugeniaNov 16 2017It is well accepted that knowing the composition and the orbital evolution of asteroids may help us to understand the process of formation of the Solar System. It is also known that asteroids can represent a threat to our planet. Such important role made ... More
