This paper concerns the solution of fuzzy linear programming (FLP) problems which involve fuzzy numbers in coefficients of objective functions. Firstly, a number of concepts of optimal solutions to FLP problems are introduced ...
In this paper, a class of forward rate dependent Markovian transformations of the Heath-Jarrow-Morton [16] term structure model are obtained by considering volatility processes that are solutions of linear ordinary ...
We explicitly exhibit a set of four ququad-ququad orthogonal maximally entangled states that cannot be perfectly distinguished by means of local operations and classical communication. Before our work, it was unknown whether ...
We study the connection between the p-Talagrand inequality and the q-logarithmic Sololev inequality for conjugate exponents p >= 2, q <= 2 in proper geodesic metric spaces. By means of a general Hamilton-Jacobi semigroup ...
We introduce variational Bayes methods for fast approximate inference in functional regression analysis. Both the standard cross-sectional and the increasingly common longitudinal settings are treated. The methodology ...
This paper presents the estimation of the transmission gains for an AC power line data network in an intelligent home. The estimated gains ensure the transmission reliability and efficiency. A neural-fuzzy network with ...
In this paper we present some new applications of Lie symmetry analysis to problems in stochastic calculus. The major focus is on using Lie symmetries of parabolic PDEs to obtain fundamental solutions and transition ...
Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that sensitization to fungi, such as Alternaria, is strongly associated with allergic rhinitis and asthma in children. However, the role of exposure to fungi in the development of ...
The association between home dampness and lower respiratory symptoms in children has been well documented. Whether fungal exposures contribute to this association is uncertain. In a prospective birth cohort of 499 children ...

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 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 ...
