      Goal-Oriented p-Adaptivity using Unconventional Error Representations for a 1D Steady State Convection-Diffusion Problem 

      Darrigrand, Vincent; Rodríguez Rozas, Ángel; Pardo Zubiaur, David; Muga, Ignacio (Elsevier, 2017)
      This work proposes the use of an alternative error representation for Goal-Oriented Adaptivity (GOA) in context of steady state convection dominated diffusion problems. It introduces an arbitrary operator for the computation ...

      Symmetrical Motifs in Young Children’s Drawings: A Study on Their Representations of Plant Life 

      Villarroel Villamor, José Domingo; Merino Maestre, María; Antón Baranda, Álvaro (MDPI, 2018-12-29)
      Young children love drawing; this is without question. Besides that, drawings are also of interest to scholars and educators, since they seem to provide food for thought regarding children's conceptual development during ...
