Point injection as a therapeutic technique is well documented, but its [hysiological effects have not been foprmally compared with traditional acupuncture. One aim of this study was to compare the effects of te two techniques ...
In this study, Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) has been used to model local scouring depth and pattern scouring around concave and convex arch shaped circular bed sills. The experimental part of this research ...
We study various axioms of discrete probabilistic choice, measuring how restrictive they are, both alone and in the presence of other axioms, given a specific class of prior distributions over a complete collection of ...
Business activities are a result of carefully formed associations between different users in order to achieve certain pre-decided outcomes. Decision-making in such associations is an important step and transactional risk ...
We conceptualize probabilistic choice as the result of the simultaneous pursuit of multiple goals in a vector optimization representation, which is reduced to a scalar optimization that implies goal balancing. The majority ...
This paper presents the probabilistic dynamic analysis of vehicle-bridge interaction systems. The bridge's and vehicle's parameters are considered as random variables as well as the road surface roughness is modeled as ...
We characterize a class of probabilistic choice models where the choice probabilities depend on two scales, one with a value for each available option and the other with a value for the set of available options. Then, we ...
The classical Lucas-Lehmer test gives necessary and sufficient conditions for the primality of 2 p -1, p an odd prime. Such primes are called Mersenne primes. Here, taking b = 2 and a = 3 to be integers, and p to be an odd ...
This model incorporates technical trading rules (TTRs) that extract information from the price, allowing the users to benefit from the information. Sustainable profits are possible as long as the price movements reflect ...
We analyze a class of quantum operations based on a geometrical representation of $d-$level quantum system (or qudit for short). A sufficient and necessary condition of complete positivity, expressed in terms of the quantum ...
We establish a theory of quantum-to-classical rate distortion coding. In this setting, a sender Alice has many copies of a quantum information source. Her goal is to transmit a classical description of the source, obtained ...
Quasi-Monte Carlo methods are used to approximate integrals of high dimensionality. However, if the problem under consideration is of unbounded dimensionality, it is not obvious if one can apply quasi-Monte Carlo methods ...
We apply quasi-Monte Carlo methods to the pricing of derivatives on realised variance of an index under the benchmark approach. The resulting integration problem is shown to depend on the joint density of the realised ...
Dynamic displacement and acceleration responses of cars with uncertain parameters under random road input excitations are investigated by using a quarter-car model. Based on the theory of random vibration, the vehicle's ...
