Title Structure-function assessment of 3D-printed porous scaffolds by a low-cost/ open source fused filament fabrication printer Type
Year 2021 Publication Materials Science & Engineering C-Materials For Biological Applications Abbreviated Journal Mater. Sci. Eng. C-Mater. Biol. Appl.
Volume 123 Issue Pages 111945
Keywords 3D printer; Scaffold; Fused filament fabrication; Mechanical properties; Finite element method; Cell adhesion efficiency
Abstract Additive manufacturing encompasses a plethora of techniques to manufacture structures from a computational model. Among them, fused filament fabrication (FFF) relies on heating thermoplastics to their fusion point and extruding the material through a nozzle in a controlled pattern. FFF is a suitable technique for tissue engineering, given that allows the fabrication of 3D-scaffolds, which are utilized for tissue regeneration purposes. The objective of this study is to assess a low-cost/open-source 3D printer (In-House), by manufacturing both solid and porous samples with relevant microarchitecture in the physiological range (100?500 ?m pore size), using an equivalent commercial counterpart for comparison. For this, compressive tests in solid and porous scaffolds manufactured in both printers were performed, comparing the results with finite element analysis (FEA) models. Additionally, a microarchitectural analysis was done in samples from both printers, comparing the measurements of both pore size and porosity to their corresponding computer-aided design (CAD) models. Moreover, a preliminary biological assessment was performed using scaffolds from our In-House printer, measuring cell adhesion efficiency. Finally, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy ? attenuated total reflectance (FTIR?ATR) was performed to evaluate chemical changes in the material (polylactic acid) after fabrication in each printer. The results show that the In-House printer achieved generally better mechanical behavior and resolution capacity than its commercial counterpart, by comparing with their FEA and CAD models, respectively. Moreover, a preliminary biological assessment indicates the feasibility of the In-House printer to be used in tissue engineering applications. The results also show the influence of pore geometry on mechanical properties of 3D-scaffolds and demonstrate that properties such as the apparent elastic modulus (Eapp) can be controlled in 3D-printed scaffolds.

Title Multi-asset Black-Scholes model as a variable second class constrained dynamical system Type
Year 2016 Publication Physica A-Statistical Mechanics And Its Applications Abbreviated Journal Physica A
Volume 457 Issue Pages 540-572
Keywords Multiasset Black-Scholes equation; Option pricing; Singular Lagrangian systems; Dirac's method; Propagators; Constrained Hamiltonian path integrals
Abstract In this paper, we study the multi-asset Black-Scholes model from a structural point of view. For this, we interpret the multi-asset Black-Scholes equation as a multidimensional Schrodinger one particle equation. The analysis of the classical Hamiltonian and Lagrangian mechanics associated with this quantum model implies that, in this system, the canonical momentums cannot always be written in terms of the velocities. This feature is a typical characteristic of the constrained system that appears in the high-energy physics. To study this model in the proper form, one must apply Dirac's method for constrained systems. The results of the Dirac's analysis indicate that in the correlation parameters space of the multi assets model, there exists a surface (called the Kummer surface Sigma(K), where the determinant of the correlation matrix is null) on which the constraint number can vary. We study in detail the cases with N = 2 and N = 3 assets. For these cases, we calculate the propagator of the multi-asset Black-Scholes equation and show that inside the Kummer Sigma(K) surface the propagator is well defined, but outside Sigma(K) the propagator diverges and the option price is not well defined. On Sigma(K) the propagator is obtained as a constrained path integral and their form depends on which region of the Kummer surface the correlation parameters lie. Thus, the multi-asset Black-Scholes model is an example of a variable constrained dynamical system, and it is a new and beautiful property that had not been previously observed.

Title Degradation Model Of Breast Imaging By Dispersed Radiation Type
Year 2011 Publication Proceedings Of The Romanian Academy Series A-Mathematics Physics Technical Sciences Information Science Abbreviated Journal Proc. Rom. Acad. Ser. A-Math. Phys.
Volume 12 Issue 4 Pages 347-352
Keywords Mammogram; Microcalcification; Computer Vision; Cancer analysis
Abstract This paper presents a model of interaction of radiation on breast, based on Bosso's filter. This model is used to improve mammographic images for early cancer diagnosis, to be more accurate and to detect cluster of microcalcifications. The model is based on degradation of breast image produced by dispersed radiation using the Bosso's filter, developed earlier.

Title Algorithm for Processing Mammography: Detection of Microcalcifications Type
Year 2018 Publication Ieee Latin America Transactions Abbreviated Journal IEEE Latin Am. Trans.
Volume 16 Issue 9 Pages 2460-2466
Keywords Breast cancer; Image processing; Microcalcifications; X-ray image
Abstract A new algorithm based in Creme Filter, is proposed for breast cancer detection. The images obtained show micro calcifications with better contrast, allowing a better prognosis. The algorithm has only one parameter free, that permitting to observe texture when parameter is changed.
