OBJECTIVE: To describe the incidence, characteristics and outcomes of patients with influenza-like symptoms presenting to 27 public hospital emergency departments (EDs) in Queensland, Australia. METHODS: A descriptive ...

The fuzzy H infinity filter design problem for T-S fuzzy systems with interval time-varying delay is investigated. The delay is considered as the time-varying delay being either differentiable uniformly bounded with delay ...

Modern epidemiological studies face opportunities and challenges posed by an ever-expanding capacity to measure a wide range of environmental exposures, along with sophisticated biomarkers of exposure and response at the ...
In an accelerated longitudinal design (ALD), individuals enter the study at different points of their growth trajectory and are observed over a short time span relative to the entire time span of interest. ALD data are ...
BACKGROUND: Infant endotoxin exposure has been proposed as a factor that might protect against allergy and the early childhood immune responses that increase the risk of IgE production to allergens. OBJECTIVE: Using a ...
We propose a new method for fitting proportional hazards models with error-prone covariates. Regression coefficients are estimated by solving an estimating equation that is the average of the partial likelihood scores based ...
This paper studies the infinite-time and finite-time synchronization of coupled harmonic oscillators with distributed protocol in the scenarios with and without a leader. In the absence of a leader, the convergence conditions ...
Large discrepancies exist among current classical theories for the in-plane buckling of arches that are subjected to a constant-directed radial load uniformly distributed around the arch axis. Discrepancies also exist ...
This paper presents an input-dependent neural network (IDNN) with variable parameters. The parameters of the neurons in the hidden nodes adapt to changes of the input environment, so that different test input sets separately ...
This paper considers a class of Lur'e descriptor systems (LDS) subject to exogenous disturbances. The concept of input-to-state stability (ISS) is generalized to descriptor systems. Such a notion characterizes the robust ...
An integral tree is a tree whose adjacency matrix has only integer eigenvalues. While most previous work by other authors has been focused either on the very restricted case of balanced trees or on finding trees with ...
The teratogenicity of maternal epilepsy has been attributed to several factors, including the antiepileptic drugs taken to prevent seizures during pregnancy, the occurrence of seizures during pregnancy, and the factors in ...

The recent April 2011 meeting of the G20 countries considered possible development of a global early warning system to avoid any future financial crisis. Psycho-economic factors are strong drivers of greed, fear and ...
The mixture model likelihood function is invariant with respect to permutation of the components of the mixture. If functions of interest are permutation sensitive, as in classification applications, then interpretation ...
Abstract: The use of the likelihood ratio statistic in testing the goodness of fit of the exploratory factor model has no formal justification when, as is often the case in practice, the usual regularity conditions are not ...
