Concept maps as a didactic strategy for learning of concepts of cell biology in students of health sciences
(Universidad del Norte, 2009)
For students of health sciences, knowledge of biology is a cornerstone to successfully face the challenges presented to them related to this field of knowledge and to interpret specific phenomena of medical science and ...
Generating dynamic fuzzy models for prediction problems
In this paper we present a new method to generate interpretable fuzzy systems from training data. A fuzzy system is developed for nonlinear systems modeling and for system state forecasting. The antecedent partition uses ...
Prospective analysis: Guidelines for forecasting financial statements
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2009)
In this chapter, we discuss some ideas that might be useful in forecasting financial statements based on historical data.1 The approaches and suggestions presented in this chapter assume that the analyst has access to some ...
Bracing alternatives in tapered frames under wind loads
The level of risk caused by forces of the nature could be reduced with an appropriate intervention of vulnerability, since such threats cannot be reduced. One of the alternatives to reduce the structural vulnerability of ...
Intentionality and interpersonal relations
(Springer New York, 2009)
The present commentary re-introduces Heider's (1958) common-sense psychology and his treatment of intentionality, comparing and contrasting his theoretical formulations with those of Elstrup (IPBS: Integrative Psychological ...
Multispectral tracking of phytoplankton in the Colombian Caribbean
In a quantitative research study, the concentration and circulation of group of micro-organisms "phytoplankton" have been found through the images of the ocean colour in the Colombian Caribbean Sea. These images have been ...
The potential that ethical finance has to generate new investment alternatives in Colombia
This article examines the need for and the opportunity of developing ethical finance initiatives, specifically ethical banks and ethical investment funds, as alternatives to strengthen development in Colombia. The validity ...
Variation in experimentation styles and domain-specific knowledge
This study explored the relationship between experimental strategies and domain-specific knowledge within a task of scientific discovery. Groups of expert biologists, experimental psychologists, and lag people in both ...
A computational model for residual life assessment of dents generated by explosive loads in pipelines
The present work develops a finite elements computational model that describes the process of dynamic deformation in pipelines under explosive loads. The mechanical response of the material is modeled by means of an ...
