We consider the properties of weighted linear combinations of prediction models, or linear pools, evaluated using the log predictive scoring rule. Although exactly one model has limiting posterior probability, an optimal ...
This article explores use of auctions for privatising public assets. In our model, a single 'insider'bidder possesses information about the asset's common value. Bidders are privately informed about their costs of exploiting ...
In this paper we consider optimal trading processes in economic systems. The analysis is based on accounting for irreversibility factor using wealth function concept.
This paper describes general methodology that allows one to extend Carnot efficiency of classical thermodynamic for zero rate processes onto thermodynamic systems with finite rate. We define the class of minimal dissipation ...

In this paper, the problem of finding the optimal separation sequence for a three-component mixture in a cascade of two binary separation stages is considered. The minimal energy that is needed for a separation in a two-stage ...
A2 circle times 2 unitary operation is called a perfect entangler if it can generate a maximally entangled state from some unentangled input. We study the following question: How many runs of a given two-qubit entangling ...

In this paper, spectral efficiency (SE) is investigated for cooperative ultra-wideband (UWB) based on-body area networks (OBANs). To optimize SE for single-relay cooperation, an equivalent generic cooperative model in UWB ...
Stated preference choice experiments are routinely used in many areas from marketing to medicine. While results on the optimal choice sets to present for the forced choice setting have been determined in a variety of ...
To meet the targets of the Kyoto Protocol, the European Union established the European Emission Trading Scheme, a mandatory market for carbon emission allowances. This regulatory framework has introduced a market for ...
The concept of cooperative retransmission in wireless networks has attracted considerable research attention. The basic idea is that when a receiver cannot decode a frame, the retransmission is handled not by its original ...
Active learning traditionally relies on instance based utility measures to rank and select instances for labeling, which may result in labeling redundancy. To address this issue, we explore instance utility from two ...
The problem of channel estimation for spatially correlated fading multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems is considered. Based on the channel's second order statistic, the minimum mean-square error (MMSE) channel ...

Background Administration of intravenous therapy is a common occurrence within the hospital setting. Routine replacement of administration sets has been advocated to reduce intravenous infusion contamination. If decreasing ...
Channel estimation and training sequence design for spatially correlated fading in Multiple Input Multiple Output with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems are still open research topics of great ...
Based on convex programming, this paper presents the optimal training signal design for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) under colored noise. An effective method for OFDM symbol detection with the use of ...
The triplet halfband filter bank structure is well known to be efficient for the design and implementation of a class of biorthogonal wavelet filter banks. Previously, two extreme cases in filter characteristics including ...
1,2-Indanedione is an emerging fingermark reagent used on porous surfaces. The general consensus is that this reagent is at least as sensitive as DFO, with some research showing higher sensitivity for 1,2-indanedione as ...
