Comparative analysis of dengue versus chikungunya outbreaks in Costa Rica
For decades, dengue virus has been a cause of major public health concern in Costa Rica, due to its landscape and climatic conditions that favor the circumstances in which the vector, Aedes aegypti, thrives. The emergence ...
The role of short-term immigration on disease dynamics: An SIR model with age-structure
El rol de la inmigración en periodos cortos sobre la dinámica de enfermedades: un modelo sir con estructura de edad
We formulate an age-structured nonlinear partial differential equation model that features short-term immigration effects in a population. Individuals can immigrate into the population as any of the three stages in the ...
Nori fundamental gerbe of essentially finite covers and Galois closure of towers of torsors
We prove the existence of a Galois closure for towers of torsors under finite group schemes over a proper, geometrically connected and geometrically reduced algebraic stack X over a field k. This is done by describing the ...
A two-level overlapping Schwarz method for H(curl) in two dimensions with irregular subdomains
A bound is obtained for the condition number of a two-level overlapping Schwarz algorithm for problems posed in H(curl) in two dimensions, where the subdomains are only assumed to be John subdomains. The coarse space is ...
An adaptive choice of primal constrains for BDDC domain decomposition algorithms
An adaptive choice for primal spaces based on parallel sums is developed for BDDC deluxe methods and elliptic problems in three dimensions. The primal space, which forms the global, coarse part of the domain decomposition ...
Models of torsors over affine spaces
Let X := A n R be the n-dimensional affine space over a discrete valuation ring R with fraction field K. We prove that any pointed torsor Y over A n K under the action of an affine finite-type group scheme can be extended ...
The pseudo-fundamental group scheme
Let X be any scheme defined over a Dedekind scheme S with a given section x ∈ X (S). We prove the existence of a pro-finite S-group scheme א (X,x) and a universal א (X,x)-torsor dominating all the pro-finite pointed torsors ...
Asymptotic expansion of the invariant measure for ballistic random walk in the low disorder regime
We consider a random walk in random environment in the low disorder regime on Zd. That is, the probability that the random walk jumps from a site x to a nearest neighboring site x+e is given by p(e)+ǫξ(x,e), where p(e) is ...
La geometría en su contexto histórico
(Las Matemáticas y su Enseñanza 6(17):21–34, 1995 octubre, 1995-10-15)
La geometría en los sistemas de enseñanza media ha sido retomado por diversas propuestas para remozar los programas de matemáticas; y en el caso de Costa Rica, con la puesta en práctica de un programa ambicioso que destaca ...
