Mesh networks with an autonomous channel assignment can be used as a viable cost-effective alternative for a last mile broadband access. The channel assignment algorithm in mesh networks should be capable of reducing the ...
Penalised-spline-based additive models allow a simple mixed model representation where the variance components control departures from linear models. The smoothing parameter is the ratio of the random-coefficient and error ...
This article extends the exchange option model of Margrabe, where the distributions of both stock prices are log-normal with correlated Wiener components, to allow the underlying assets to be driven by jump-diffusion ...

A gate is called entangler if it transforms some (pure) product states to entangled states. A universal entangler is a gate which transforms all product states to entangled states. In practice, a universal entangler is a ...
Variational approximations facilitate approximate inference for the parameters in complex statistical models and provide fast, deterministic alternatives to Monte Carlo methods. However, much of the contemporary literature ...
We give explicit upper bounds for convergence rates when approximating both one- and two-sided general curvilinear boundary crossing probabilities for the Wiener process by similar probabilities for close boundaries of ...

Two areas of research longitudinal data analysis and kernel machines have large, but mostly distinct, literatures. This article shows explicitly that both fields have much in common with each other. In particular, many ...
Objectives-The association between birth weight and exposure to benzene, work stress, and other occupational and environmental hazards was investigated. Methods-in a large petrochemical industry, 792 pregnant workers were ...
We looked for an association between early exposure to pets and asthma and wheezing in children whose mothers or fathers did or did not have a history of asthma. We followed up 448 children, who had at least one parent ...
Background: There has been no longitudinal study of the relation between concurrent exposure to dust mite allergen and endotoxin in early life and asthma and atopy at school age. Objectives: To examine the relation between ...

In 1987 Knopfmacher and Knopfmacher published new infinite product expansions for real numbers 0 < A < 1 and A > 1. They called these expansions Engel product expansions. At that time they had difficulty finding rational ...
We investigate the extension of binning methodology to fast computation of several auxiliary quantities that arise in local polynomial smoothing. Examples include degrees of freedom measures, cross-validation functions, ...
The fast synchronization of directionally coupled chaotic systems under a chained interaction topology is studied by applying finite-time stability theory. It is shown that all chaotic systems can achieve synchronization ...
This paper studies the fast synchronization of directionally coupled chaotic systems under a chained interaction topology. Firstly, by applying finite-time stability theory, it is shown that all chaotic systems can achieve ...
To construct the model of gene expression using microarray techniques can reveal the regulation rules from the gene expression profiles. From S-system model, it is able to analyze the regulatory system dynamics. However, ...
Data mining is the most commonly used name to solve problems by analyzing data already present in databases. Feature selection is an important problem in the emerging field of data mining which is aimed at finding a small ...

This paper develops inference for the significance of features such as peaks and valleys observed in additive modeling through an extension of the SiZer-type methodology of Chaudhuri and Marron (1999) and Godtliebsen et ...
