Further reduction for classical normal forms of formal maps is considered in this note. Based on a recursive formula for computing the transformed map of a formal map under a near identity formal transformation, we develop ...
Classic bilevel programming deals with two level hierarchical optimization problems in which the leader attempts to optimize his/her objective, subject to a set of constraints and his/her follower's solution. In modelling ...

We present a new model and a new approach for solving fuzzy linear programming (FLP) problems with various utilities for the satisfaction of the fuzzy constraints. The model, constructed as a multi-objective linear programming ...
n this paper, we present our opinions on fuzzy logic from the viewpoint of machine intelligence. Firstly, we analyze characteristics of fuzzy logic that are adapted to the study of machine intelligence. Secondly, we present ...
Variational approximation methods have become a mainstay of contemporary machine learning methodology, but currently have little presence in statistics. We devise an effective variational approximation strategy for fitting ...

Generalized linear mixed models (GLMMs) are often fit by computational procedures such as penalized quasi-likelihood (PQL). Special cases of GLMMs are generalized linear models (GLMs), which are often fit using algorithms ...
Linear mixed models are able to handle an extraordinary range of complications in regression-type analyses. Their most common use is to account for within-subject correlation in longitudinal data analysis. They are also ...
We devise a variationalBayes algorithm for fast approximate inference in Bayesian GeneralizedExtremeValue additive modelanalysis. Such models are useful for flexibly assessing the impact of continuous predictor variables ...
We present a sequential Monte Carlo sampler algorithm for the Bayesian analysis of generalised linear mixed models (GLMMs). These models support a variety of interesting regression-type analyses, but performing inference ...
There are a number of applied settings where a response is measured repeatedly over time, and the impact of a stimulus at one time is distributed over several subsequent response measures. In the motivating application the ...

We develop Mean Field Variational Bayes methodology for fast approximate inference in Bayesian Generalized Extreme Value additive model analysis. Such models are useful for flexibly assessing the impact of continuous ...
A semiparametric version of the generalized linear model for regression response was developed by replacing the linear combination with nonparametric components. The generalized partially linear single-index models were ...
We develop a family of distributions which allow for over- and underdispersion relative to the Poisson. This latter feature is particularly appealing since many existing methods only allow for overdispersion. These ...
In stock market or other financial market systems, the technical trading rules are used widely to generate buy and sell alert signals. In each rule, there are many parameters. The users often want to get the best signal ...
The Pro/Pro polymorphism of p53 codon 72 has been reported to be related to bladder and lung cancer, but its relationship with skin cancer is unclear. We assessed the hypothesis that there is a relationship between the p53 ...
